A 35-year old mechanic who had sex with his
four year old daughter was on Tuesday
sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by an
Accra Circuit Court.
This was after Kofi Akorful was found guilty on
the charge of incest by the court presided
over by Mrs Rita Agyemang Budu at the end of
Prosecuting Assistant Commissioner of Police
(ACP) Moses Atibilla said the complainant was
a trader and the mother of the victim whiles
Akorful lives with the complainant and victim
in a wooden kiosk at Darkuman.
According to prosecution, the convict on
September 15, last year, had sex with the
victim at about 1230 hours when the
complainant was asleep.
Prosecution said the convict before having
sex with the victim, went ahead to hold the
hand of the complainant (victim’s mother) to
see if indeed she was asleep and repeated the
act early this year.
Prosecution said on April 6, when the
complainant was preparing the victim for
school, she complained of pains in her vagina.
The victim then told the complainant that it
was her father who had sex with her and a
report was made to the Police at Kaneshie
where the victim was medically examined.
The prosecution said Akorful denied the
offence in his caution statement.
