A father who raped his 12-year-old stepchild on in cocoa farm and later threatened to kill her has been handed a 20-year jail term in a high labour to serve as a deterrent to other criminally minded people.
The convict, Kofi Amankwah was jailed by the Asamankese Circuit Court, presided over by Justice Abass Abubakar Adams, on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.
According to court’s proceeding, the convict after raping the victim for the first time did not end there and also threatened to kill the victim
“Kofi Amankwah stays with the wife and her stepdaughter, and after defiling the girl outside, he threatens her that he will kill her if she tells anyone. The child couldn’t tell anyone when it happened the first time, but he rapped her again in their cocoa farm, and even with that, she was unable to tell anyone.
“It was the mother who noticed some changes in her daughter, and upon questioning, the girl told the truth, and the mother immediately reported the issue to the police. Upon pleading guilty to the charge, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison,” Kapital Online Team gathered.
