A 40-year-old driver and his daughter have been remanded into prison custody by a Kumasi Circuit court for engaging in sexual relations.
The 20-year-old lady told Nhyira FM’s
Ewiase mu Nsem
her father; Kojo Mintah threatened her with the Antoa deity into having sex with her about ten times over a period of one year.
But officials of the Zongo police Domestic Violent and Victim Support Unit decided to charge the two with incest because preliminary investigations indicate the two adults consented to the act.
Doreen Mensah, who is a JHS leaver, told Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor that her father started having sex with her after the death of her mother.
Meanwhile, her father told Luv News he was seduced by the daughter.
He however felt sorry for the daughter, saying if knowledge of their amorous relationship gets to the public she could be antagonized.
Detective Inspector Donatus Dickson Torda of Zongo DOVVSU told Lu News Section 105(a) Subsection II of the Criminal Code mandates the arrest of a victim of incest if he or she is above 16 years.
“She is of age, an adult…because she knows that the father is her close blood relation and the father too knows that she is his daughter, and when you go into the law, the two should be charged.”
