Okyere’s sentence was handed to him when the court found him guilty on the charge of defilement.


Okyere had denied the charge during the trial, which began in 2014.

Prosecuting, Detective Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant, a worker of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, resided at Ogbojo Dzai Ayor.

According to Inspector Atimbire, the convict lived in the same vicinity with the complainant and his family, including the victim.

On June 8, last year, the Prosecution said in the morning, whiles the complainant was bathing the victim, she (the victim) prevented her from washing her private parts.

The Prosecution said anytime the complainant attempted to stretch out her hand towards the victim’s vagina, she held his hand and cried.

The complainant became alarmed and quizzed the victim, who then mentioned Okyere as having lured her into his kiosk and had sex with her.

The Prosecution said the complainant immediately sent the victim to the Madina Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit (DOVVSU) and reported the matter.

The complainant was issued with a medical form to send the victim to the Hospital for examination and treatment.

He said Okyere was, however, picked by the Police and charged.
