A 53-year-old mason has been put before an Accra Central District Court for failing to provide basic health and educational needs for his two children.

The accused, Simon Mensah pleaded not guilty and was admitted to a bail of GH¢1,000.00 with one surety to reappear on April 19.

According to the prosecutor, Sergeant Simon Tekpor, the complainant, a 39-year-old trader residing at Adeisu in the Eastern Region was the ex-lover of the accused.

He said the complainant and the accused had two children out of their relationship; two and five years.

However, when the relationship collapsed in 2015, the accused person failed to remit the children as well as rent a place for the complainant and the children to live, the prosecution noted.

He said that the complainant subsequently reported the matter to the Officials of the Social Welfare at the Ministries Police Station. The accused was then asked to remit the children with GH¢200.00 every month starting from June 2016.

The accused person was also to rent a place for the kids and the complainant, the prosecution said.

But the accused refused to do so and hence the complainant reported the matter to the police at the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit. He was later arrested.
