Dankyi, an uncle to the victims, who is facing six counts of defilement, has pleaded not guilty.
The court presided over Mrs Marian Affoah has admitted Dankyi, a 29 year fashion designer to bail in the sum of ¢10,000 cedis with four sureties.
The court ordered the case investigator to verify the residential and occupational addresses of all the four sureties and ensure that they are of substantial means sufficient to post bail for the accused person.
The matter has been adjourned to April 29.
Mr Emmanuel Addai, who presented the accused person, prayed for bail.
Prosecuting Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Adolphine Dzansi told the court that the complainant was a businessman residing at Ablekumah and he was the father of the female victim aged eight years and her two brothers.
The three victims live with their mother at Teshie Bush road. The accused person also resides at Teshie.
DSP Dzansi said often times the victims were left in the care of Dankyi whenever their mother leaves for town.
According to the prosecutor, Police investigations have revealed that between last year and this year, Dankyi made the victims strip naked, laid them on his bed and had anal sex with them in turns.
Sometimes, prosecution said he had anal sex with one of the male victims in bathroom. On April 10, this year, Dankyi again took victims into his bedroom and had bouts of anal sex with the victims.
Four days later, DSP Dzansi said the complainant went for the victims to spend the Easter Holidays with him.
On April 15, this year, the complainant detected that the female child was unable to walk properly and when he quizzed her, she claimed she was sick.
A witness in the case who questioned the two other male victims revealed the ordeal they had gone through in the hands of the accused person.
The female victim was sent to the Rinant Hospital at East Legon and the medical officer confirmed that she had been defiled and asked the complainant to report the matter to the Police.
Subsequently, a report was made to the Police at East Legon where an extract of occurrence was prepared and forwarded to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit, Accra for further investigations.
The complainant was also issued with a Police medical form to send the three victims to the hospital and same was returned after they had been endorsed by a medical officer.
Dankyi was later arrested.
