In Accra: Five teenagers in police grips for sexually abusing 15 year old girl

Five persons have been put before an Accra Circuit Court for allegedly inserting their fingers into the private part of a 15 year old girl and one of them having sex with her at Osu.

The five including an 18-year old Senior High School student and four Junior High School students’ ages between 16 and 17 (juveniles) kissed and fondled the victim and also took video shots and posted same on social media.

The victim’s uncle however saw the video that went viral and confronted the victim.

They have been variously charged with indecent assault, child pornography and defilement.

The act comes after a similar incident took place at Kumasi Bantama in the Ashanti Region.

The court presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin based on the ages of the accused and juveniles, did not take their pleas and advised their parents to get legal representation for their wards.

This was after parents of the accused and the four juveniles had told the court that they have not been to court before hence they did not know that they had to engage the services of lawyers

The accused person and the four juveniles were admitted to bail in the sum of GH 10,000 cedis with a surety each. They are to reappear on January 5, 2018.
