Lucas Agboyie, a 22-year-old man, confessed yesterday at the Accra Central District Magistrate Court to killing a 7-year-old girl at Ashaiman, near Tema, after which he had se”x with her corpse.
He told the court that he strangled his victim after she had turn down his advances and even pleaded him not to have se”xual intercoure with her.
“It was a Sunday morning and after taking ‘ganja’, I saw the girl passing.
I called her and sent her to go and bring me my towel that had been hung behind my house. On her return, I told her that I wanted to sleep with her but she refused. I held her hand and she began struggling with me.
She begged and told me to let her go and started screaming. So I strangled her. I then took her to my room and slept with the body. Afterwards, I took the GH¢20 she had in her possession and used it to buy ‘ganja’.”
The mother of the victim who was in court, could not hold back her tears as he made the confession. She had to be soothed by her family members who had accompanied her to the court.
As the confession was unfolding, others could be seen shaking their heads and shedding tears. Agboyie has been charged with murder and he is presently going through committal proceedings.
