The court found Mbachu guilty of fondling the girl’s breast and asking her to perform an oral sexual act on him. However, he was acquitted and discharged on the charge of defilement. The incident occurred when the victim’s uncle, a businessman residing in Palladium, Accra, went to visit her father at their shared residence in Korle-Gonno and discovered that the girl was missing.

The case was led by Superintendent of Police Agnes Boafo and referred to the Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit at Mamprobi for further action. In the Accra Circuit Court, Mbachu was sentenced to 180 days of imprisonment as a punishment for indecent assault.

Is important to note that indecent assault is a serious crime that can cause lasting psychological damage to the victim.
