Man jailed 20 years for defiling baby

 A 31-year-old man, who defiled a baby, at Madina Social Welfare, Accra, has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment in hard labour by the Adentan Circuit Court.

Kafui Goli, convict, was found guilty on the charge of defilement at the end of trial by the court presided over by Mrs Sedinam Awo Balokah.

The one year, seven-month old victim, is said to have gone to play in Goli’s room, and on her return, her diaper was soaked with blood.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Maxwell Lanyo, said the com­plainant was a beautician while accused, now convict, worked in a hotel.

The court heard that Goli lived with the sister of the complainant in the same house at Madina Social Welfare.

Chief Insp Lanyo said the com­plainant had two children (set of twins) who were all girls aged one year, seven months.

The prosecution said on November 19, 2021, when Goli returned from work at about 4:00 pm, some children in the house, including one of the complainant’s daughters, followed him to his room.

Chief Insp Lanyo said the complainant wanted to take her daughter (victim) from Goli’s room, but he (Goli) asked the complainant to allow the victim to play in his room.

The prosecution said when the complainant went again to take her daughter, he (complainant) realised that the victim’s dia­per was stained with blood.

Chief Insp Lanyo said when complainant confronted Goli, “he did not accept or deny the offence of defilement.”

The prose­cution said the complainant reported the case to the police at Madina, Accra, and he (complainant) was given medical form to seek med­ical care for the victim. -—GNA
