Man who impregnated daughter, niece charged

arrest jailThe Mankraso police have charged a 45-year old farmer said to have had several sexual encounters with his class six daughter and niece with incest and defilement.

Kofi Boateng was picked up at Bonkwaso Number Two near Mankraso in the Ahafo Ano South District of the Ashanti region on June 29, 2016 after his victims, aged 16 and 13, who could no longer withstand his sexual demands reported his conduct to the police.

Boateng’s daughter [name withheld] a class-six pupil told police she’s carrying her father’s one and half month old pregnancy.

Whilst police await a medical report on the two teenagers, police have charged the suspect who has admitted the offence.

According to police, the amorous relationship between the two girls and their father – who is said to have lost the wife more than a year ago – started six months ago.

Boateng would enter their room through a window to satisfy his sexual appetite and climb out afterwards.

“The first one is 16 years and this one is 13 years. They all sleep in the same room. According to the victims, anytime the father comes there, he would have intercourse; after this one, he will jump onto the other one. It’s like having intercourse in succession” District Commander, DSP John Adusei revealed.

Boateng cowed his daughter and his brother’s daughter with threats of death if they revealed their ordeal.

“The father threatened that, if they dare tell anybody, he will butcher her or something.”

But that threat did not scare the girls who reported the incident to the Mankraso Police.

Boateng in his statement admitted the offence. Mankraso District Commander, DSP John Adusei says the suspect faces incest and defilement charges.

Quoting Section 105 of the Criminal Code; Act 29, DSP Adusei said the suspect could face 3-year imprisonment if found guilty of the incest charge. Meanwhile, the Mankraso Magistrate Court has remanded the suspect to re-appear on July 14, 2016.
