Lady denies fore knowledge of her assault by co-tenant with artificial penis

A 22-year-old lady, who was allegedly intoxicated and sexually assaulted by her female colleague with an artificial penis, says she had no fore knowledge about the act.

A 26-year-old student, Queenie Akuffo, allegedly coerced her victim, whose name is being withheld, to take some bottles of beer after which she inserted a dildo into the vagina of the victim.

Lawyers for Queenie had argued before an Accra Circuit Court that the victim knew what the accused person intended to do with her before she accepted the alcoholic beverage.

But giving her evidence under cross-examination Wednesday, the victim said she did not know that Queenie had the intention of using an artificial penis to abuse her sexually. She also denied claims that she [the victim] was an unemployed mother with a child who washes Queenie’s clothes for a fee.

Narrating how the incident happened, the victim told the court that her younger sister informed her that Queeny had asked for her [the victim] and upon reaching there [Queenie’s room], she was offered some alcohol but she initially refused.

She said Queenie then sent her sister to buy more beer, and convinced her to drink some, after which she became intoxicated. According to the victim, she did not see when the drink was poured in a glass for her to drink.

She claimed didn’t see what happened next until the next day when she realized the accused person was abusing her sexually with an artificial penis.

The case has been adjourned to march 15.

The prosecution’s case is that on January 25, at about 1800hrs Queenie sent the victim’s younger sister, a witness in the case to go and call the victim and the witness obliged.
