The accused pleaded not guilty and would re-appear on February 11.      

Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Oscar Amponsah told the court, presided by Mr Justice Obeng Asante that the complainant, Kwabena Yeboah, a farmer and father of the victim, lived in the same neighborhood with the accused at

Wasa Sebe-Krom.     

He said about three months ago, the complainant detected that Essel was having sexual intercourse with the victim and warned him to put an end to it but he failed to adhere to the advice.

He said on September 12, 2014, the complainant took the victim to the police station and reported the matter.      

He said while the case was under investigation, the police established that, the accused started having sexual intercourse with the victim three years ago.
