The prosecutor, Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the suspect committed the act on two occasions on August 22, 2017, during a vacation class.

According to the prosecutor, the suspect who did not appear satisfied with the act lured the pupil into another class, and allegedly committed the same act while sucking her breast.

“The pupil after going through all these started crying and went to her sister in another class to inform her about the incident. After the class, the two went home and told their father. Based on this, the father lodged a complaint at the police leading to Offei’s arrest,’’ Chief Inspector Atimbire said.
