A 40-year-old farmer has been sentenced to 12 years in prison by the Agona Swedru Circuit Court for defiling and impregnating his 15-year-old daughter.

Abubakar Osumanu, who is a cocoa farmer at Akorakese, near Akim Oda, a cocoa community in the Eastern Region, confessed and pleaded guilty to the charges of incest and defilement, the GNA reports.

The police chief said that the victim lives in Nsusososo, a suburb of Agona Swedru, with the complainant.

The victim is a daughter of the accused and usually comes over during the weekends for money for school.

But the accused has been taking advantage of her coming to ask for money to have sexual intercourse with her on several occasions.

The Prosecution said on November 19, 2017, at about 1900 hours, the accused came to Agona Swedru and lured the victim to Ken Diasco Guest House where he had sex with her.
