An Accra Circuit Court has remanded a 32-year-old military officer, Franklin Kumbo, for allegedly defiling a seven-year-old girl.

Kumbo who is facing a charge of defiling a minor pleaded not guilty.

His lawyer prayed the court to grant him bail since he had an alibi in the whole case.

But the court, presided over Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, argued that Kumbo would interfere with investigations of the alibi when granted bail.

She further ordered that a notice of the alibi be served on the prosecution for investigations.

The prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire, narrated to the court that both the complainant and the accused live at Burma Camp in Accra.

He continued that in the afternoon of November 28, 2017, the victim was going to play with her friends when the soldier met her.

Kumbo then blindfolded the girl with a handkerchief and took her to his room and had sex with her.

He then threatened to beat the victim if she told anyone about the incident.

The victim fell sick afterwards, complaining of severe pains in her lower abdomen. She was later sent to the hospital.

The prosecution told the court that the blood came out the victim after urinating as result of the alleged defilement.

The victim told her mother what the soldier had done to her and led her mother to his door.

Chief Inspector Atimbire narrated that the victim’s father, who is also a soldier, reported the matter to the Ghana Military Police which issued a medical form to the victim to be taken to the hospital for examination and treatment.

He said the matter was transferred to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service and the soldier was arrested.
