The Tesano Branch of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) has arrested a man30-year-old trader, Kweku Ansong, for allegedly defiling two out of six children in turns, at Taifa.

The suspect, currently in police custody, allegedly lured the children with an amount of GH?10 from a place called Abuja, behind Accra CMB, to his Taifa residence where he defiled the two children.

Four of the children who claimed they declined to have sex with the suspect were sacked from the suspect?s room around 2:00am yesterday.

ASP Experanza Ayensu-Danso, the Tesano Divisional DOVVSU officer, told DAILY GUIDE that the children were brought to the police station around 2:00am yesterday by a police patrol team.

The patrol team spotted the children at Abeka junction around 2:00am walking briskly towards Accra.

Upon interrogation, the victims confessed that the suspect, Kweku Ansong, had lured them to his residence to have sex with them.

They were quickly handed over to Tesano DOVVSU for investigations.

The victims are Bertha Kumadzi-14, Sarah Ofosua-15, Rebecca Bruce-13, Ruth Amponsah-14, Margaret Akosua Otiwaa-14 and Grace Mensah-14.

Two of the victims, Grace Mensah and Ruth Amponsah confirmed to the police that Kweku succeeded in sleeping with them.

While the four others said because they refused the suspect?s request for sex, they were sacked from the room that fateful day. Based on the statements given by the victims Kweku was arrested to help the police in investigations.

According to Grace and Ruth, Kweku often came to pick them from their Abuja place of abode to his residence at Taifa to have sex with them after which he gave them GH?10 and G?H13 each.
