The Koforidua Circuit Court has remanded 30-year-old Enoch Yaw Keteku into prison custody for allegedly abducting and defiling a 14-year-old girl at Koforidua Okorase.
According to the police, Enoch Keteku who abducted the young girl kept her in his room for five days and sexually assaulted her while the parents of the victim were worriedly looking for her.
A search conducted in their area led the parents to the house of the accused person after they saw the dress of the victim hanging on a dry line in the corridor of the accused person.
Upon entering the room, they saw the victim on the bed of Enoch Keteku and subsequently arrested and handed him over to DOVVSU.
The court presided over by Her Ladyship Mercy Adei Kotei remanded the accused person who is also a carpenter.
The Eastern Regional Police PRO, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh who confirmed the development to Citi News, said: “A 30-year-old Enoch Yaw Keteku who is a carpenter and a resident Okorase in the Koforidua municipality has been remanded into prison custody to appear on September 14, 2021, for abduction and defilement.”
