Prosecuting, Detective Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire narrated to the court that, the victim lives with her mother at Okaishie, while Atatza reside at Oyibi, but was then working on an uncompleted building at Okaishie near the complainant’s residence.

According to Chief Inspector Atimbire, the victim and her siblings often ran errands for the accused and he gave them money in compensation on each occasion.

He said on August 30 this year, at about 7:00 pm, the suspect went to their sleeping place in front of a store where squatters had mounted their mosquito nets.

The suspect then as usual, called the victim and one of her sibling to the uncompleted building under the guise of fetching water for them to be given to their mother who was then washing.

In order to ostensibly have sufficient time to commit the alleged crime, Atatza sent the victim’s brother to buy mosquito coil and send same to his room, but asked him to delay in coming back.

Prosecution said the victim’s brother went and on his return, he found Atatza having sex with the victim on a bench with the victim’s panties lying by the bench.

The accused quickly stopped abusing the little girl upon allegedly being caught red-handed by the errand boy.

Sensing danger of facing the consequences of his barbaric act, the accused attempted hiding the act by giving the victim and her brother GH¢2.00 each, and warning them not tell anyone about it.

However, the unperturbed victim called his bluff and informed her mother about her ordeal.

Inspector Atimbire added that, not too long after the incident, the accused came to the complainant, probably under the thought that the 7-year-old victim had shut up as he ordered her.
