Chief Inspector Atimbire said the convict’s house is adjacent that of the complainant.

Prosecution said there is no water pipe in the complainant’s house and as a result the complainant sends the victim to buy pipe-borne water from the convict’s landlady.

Prosecution added that the victim obliged and went to the convict’s room to pick the phone, the convict followed her to the room, pounced on her, and had sex with her.

After the act, Alateyvi gave the victim GH¢10.00 and warned her not to disclose this to anyone or else she would die, the GNA reports.
