An Accra Circuit Court has granted bail to one of the suspects who allegedly participated in defiling a 14-year old girl on a school veranda at Achimota.

Michael Aleke is one of two persons who have been accused of the act.

Defilement and other cases of high magnitude used to be nonbailable until a supreme court ruling in May 2016, by a 5-2 decision, described the almost three decades old law that made such offences unbailable as “unconstitutional.”

Aleke, has been charged with defilement, but was admitted to bail in the sum of GHc 40,000.00 with two sureties who are gainfully employed.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire, in prosecuting indicated to the court that, the Police had completed their investigations, but were hunting for one Wiseman who also allegedly defiled the victim earlier near the crime scene.

He told the court presided over by Mrs. Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye that, the complainant is a Miner and a step Father of the victim who resides at Achimota.

The Chief Inspector further revealed that the second suspect who is at large, is a student of Achimota Senior High School, while Aleke is a Shop Attendant residing near the Achimota Basic School, Accra.

He said on July 3 this year, around midnight, the victim visited Wiseman at Achimota Basic School and he took her to the veranda of the Class five block and had sex with her.

According to the prosecution, just after the sexual intercourse with Wiseman, Aleke approached the victim on her way home and took her to another part of the school and had sex with her.

Chief Inspector Atimbire said the victim complained of abdominal pains after the act, so Aleke took her in a taxi and bought some medicine for her at Osu.

He then brought the victim to the Achimota New Station and abandoned her there.

Prosecution said the victim failed to inform anyone until the complainant detected a change in her attitude and the manner she carried herself around.

The victim, upon questioning revealed the ordeal to the complainant and mentioned the names of the accused persons.

A report was made subsequently to the Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service at Tesano where a medical form was issued to the victim to seek medical attention.

Aleke was later arrested by the Police and during interrogation he admitted the offence.

The case has been adjourned to September 28 for further hearing.
