Kwame Boateng, a 23-year -old trader is standing trial at the Kumasi Gender Court for abducting a 16-year-old female junior high school student.

He was granted a bail of GH¢5,000.00 with two sureties in the court presided over by Mrs Rita Agyemang-Budu and he is to reappear on December 13.

Police Chief Inspector Philip Yao Bebli told the court that Georgina Tabi, the mother of the victim, lives together with her at Abrepo, in Kumasi.

Boateng also resides at Hiawu-Besease in the Atwima-Nwabiagya District, and carries out his trading activities at Kejetia-Morocco.

On October 24, the accused met the girl and proposed love to her and followed it up by buying her food and two pairs of slippers.

The prosecution said the accused convinced her to follow him to his house where he kept her for six days, during which period he had repeated sexual intercourse with her.

The worried mother, who did not know the whereabouts of the daughter, made a formal report to the Suame police and caused announcements to be made on various FM radio stations.

The girl returned to the house on November 2, and was sent to the police station, where she gave out Boateng.

She led the police to the accused person who was arrested.
