Sefakor Ayeke, the 25-year- old banking and finance student of a polytechnic who allegedly lured two minors to suck the manhood of some male adults while she videoed the act for her supposed white boyfriend abroad, has been remanded into police custody by an Accra Cir­cuit Court.

Her two accomplices, Ebenezer Asiedu, 22, a car sprayer and Isaac Kofi Parku Dodzie, 18, a student, have also been caged.

The police have also intensified the search for the fourth accused person, one Mustapha, who is currently on the run.

Charges

The three have been charged with the offence of conspiracy to commit crime and subjecting a child to inhuman and degrading treatment^

Sefakor, Aseidu and Dodzie, are facing additional charges of abetment of crime and indecent assault respectively.

In September this year, Sefakor is said to have made two minors—aged eight and ten—touch and suck the manhoods of Aseidu and Dodzie at North Legon, a suburb of Accra.

At the trial in a court presided over by Mrs Rita Agyemang Budu, Sefakor and Dodzie plead­ed not guilty while Aseidu admit­ted the offence.

Sentencing of Aseidu was however deferred to October 22 while the other two have been remanded into police custody.

Facts

Prosecuting, ASP Sarah Acquah told the court that the complainant, John Tsimesi, is a businessman and a father to one of the minors in the case—the one aged eight—while the sec­ond victim aged 10 is a Junior High School pupil and a cousin to the first victim. The prosecu­tor disclosed that both minors were living in the same house at the time of the crime.

She said all four suspects are friends who live in the same neighbourhood at Madina Washington and that in Septem­ber, during the long vacation holidays, the first victim came to spend some holidays with her cousin, the second victim.

The prosecutor stated that one day while the victims were home with their grandmother, Sefakor sought permission to take them to a nearby cafe to play games and lured them to Mustapha's house, where she conspired with him to make the children suck his manhood in turns after she (Sefakor) had demonstrated the process to the children.

ASP Acquah said Sefakor warned the minors not to tell anyone about the incident or else they would die the next day, adding that she again lured the children to a guest house where she had again con­spired with Mustapha. This time however, they were joined by Aseidu and Dodzie in the act.

She stated that the first victim was made to suck the man­hood of Dodzie while the sec­ond sucked that of Aseidu—an act which is inhumane and degrading to the victims.

The police officer further dis­closed that after the act, Sefakor bought the minors ice cream and pleaded with them not to dis­close it to anyone.

According to ASP Acquah, Sefakor recorded video footage during the act and purportedly sent it to anoth­er accomplice in the USA for a fee.     

Luck eluded Sefakor, however, when the first victim told her parents of her ordeal when she returned to Tema.

The suspects were subse­quently arrested after a com­plaint was lodged.
