Hohoe, June 15s GNA - A 40-year-old farmer of Likpe-Mate, Prosper Kodjo Honu, has defiled a seven-year-old girl and an eight-year-old girl, and has been arrested by the police.

Mr Kwabena otuo Acheampong, Hohoe Municipal Police Crime Officer, told the GNA that the suspect allegedly defiled the seven-year-old girl on June 5 when someone saw him performing the act in the bush.
