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 the trial.

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.
