Mechanic jailed 20yrs for defiling daughter, 4

HandcuffsA 35-year-old mechanic who defiled his four-year-old daughter was on Tuesday sen-tenced to 20 years imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court.

This was after Kofi Akorful, the mechanic, was found guilty of the charge of incest by the court, presided over by Mrs Rita Agyemang Budu at the end of the trial.

Prosecuting, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Moses Atibilla said the complainant was a trader and mother of the victim while Akorful lived 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 12:30 a.m., when the complainant was asleep.

He allegedly had sex with the girl again early this year.

Prosecution said on April 6, this year, when the complainant was preparing the victim for school, she complained of pains in her vagina and told the complainant that her father had had sex with her.

The mother consequently reported the matter to the Police at Kaneshie.

The prosecution said Akorful denied the offence in his caution statement.—GNA
