Central Regional Communications officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwesi Dawood, has been remanded in police custody by a circuit court in Cape Coast.

The accused was in court on Thursday to answer charges on incest, defilement and assault.

Mr. Dawood has been accused of having sex with his biological daughter (incest), having sex with her daughter when she was 15-years-old (Defilement) and beating her (assault).

Mr. Dawood was granted GH30,000 bail with two sureties on Wednesday, October 13, on the charge of aborting the pregnancy of her biological daughter at the same court.

Presenting the facts of the case, prosecutor, Chief Inspector Daniel Mensah Gadzo, said, the biological daughter of Kwesi Dawood, felt unwell in school and confided in her school counselor about the ordeal she’s been through at the hands of her father.

The matter was subsequently relayed to the mother of the victim who reported it to the police.

He’s been accused of having sex with the daughter in 2019 when she was 15-years-old. He’s also been accused of aborting the pregnancy he was responsible for and in concert with one Atta Mensah, his colleague at the NADMO office at Agona Swedru, aborted the pregnancy in 2020.

Mr. Dawood, according to the prosecutor, subjected the daughter to severe beatings such that the victim had to run to seek refuge with her grandmother.

The accused pleaded not guilty to all the three charges: Defilement, incest and assault.

Lawyer for the accused prayed the Court for his client to be granted bail. The wishes of the lawyer were not granted as the presiding judge, Dorinda Arthur-Smith, remanded the accused, Kwesi Dawood, into police custody to reappear on the 27th October.
