Douglas Okundowa a Nigerian national has been sentenced to six months imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court for sexually assaulting an underage girl.

The court on Tuesday convicted Okundowa after he admitted to kissing and having “deep romance” with the victim who was 14 years when the incident occurred.

The convict  was a student of Intercom Programming and Manufacturing Company Limited (IPMC) a college of technology in Accra.

In April last year the accused person contacted the victim on social media promising to buy her a smart phone.

On June 03, the convict asked the victim to meet him at his residence at A- Lane in Santa Maria a suburb of Accra. According to the prosecution Okundowa kept the girl in his room and had sex with her several times.

The victim who feared her guardian would go to her school to enquire about her pleaded with the convict to let her go but he refused.

The convict rather sent a hoax text telling the victim’s guardian that she had been attacked by armed robbers.

The victims guardian sent reported the matter to the police and Okundowa was arrested.

The Court could not uphold the charges on defilement because the medical report was inconclusive.

The victim who feared that her guardian would go to her school to enquire about her pleaded with the convict to let her go but he refused.

The convict rather sent a hoax text telling the victim’s guardian that the victim and her other colleagues had been attacked by armed robbers and the robbers were abusing the females among them.

Prosecution said the complainant forwarded the text message to the Police and Okundowa was arrested.

Okundowa denied having sex with the victim but admitted that he had “deep romance” with her.

In Okundowa’s room, the police found three unused male condoms and one used female condom.
