The suspect, according to the Police, had been sex with her daughter, and was responsible for her pregnancy was forced to abort.

The Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant in the case was the mother of the alleged victim and a former wife of Sika.

The alleged victim and her siblings normally visited their father on weekends and during holidays to collect money for their upkeep.

Sika, the prosecutor stated, used to have sex with her daughter anytime she visited him.

"Whenever the children visit, they sleep in the same room with their father. Sika then engages in sexual intercourse with the daughter when the other siblings are fast asleep," he said.

In 2014, C/Insp Atimbire said the daughter fell sick and was sent to hospital by Sika where a doctor confirmed that she was pregnant.

"Sika then allowed the doctor to abort the said pregnancy and warned his daughter not to disclose the sexual act and the abortion to anyone," the police added.

According to C/Insp Atimbire, on February 4, 2017, the alleged victim went to church and narrated her ordeal to her uncle.

"The uncle then informed the mother of the victim who in turn reported the matter to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service," he said.
