A 45-year-old mason, arrested for impregnating his own biological daughter, has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by the Tarkwa Circuit Court.
Samuel Ansah had pleaded guilty to the charge of incest and was convicted on his own plea.
The victim, a first year, junior high school (JHS) student is carrying a two months pregnancy.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Essel-Dadzie told the court that the girl had been living together with Ansah at Aboso in the Prestea Huni/Valley District.
She fell sick and the convict mixed a substance with an apple drink and gave it to her to drink.
Telesol launches 4G internet service; set to bridge digital gap
Managing Director of Telesol, a 4G-internet service provider said the company is set to adopt new technologies to widen the current digital divide between Africa and the rest of the world beginning from Ghana.
The unsuspecting daughter did as she was told by the father but immediately after taking it she became dizzy and he took advantage of the opportunity – locked the door and had sex with her.
He warned her not to tell anybody about it but kept having sex with her.
In December last year, the girl noticed that she was pregnant and informed a neighbour, who led her to the police station to make a report.
Ansah was subsequently arrested and he confessed committing the offence during police interrogation.
