At Asamankese, a community in the Lower West Akyem municipality of the Eastern region, a man has been jailed for 20 years for defiling his stepdaughter.

The Asamankese Circuit Court, presided over by Justice Abass Abubakar Adams on Wednesday November 1, 2023, sentenced Kofi Amankwah, the accused, for lying with his stepchild.

According to Rainbow Radio’s Collins Bennin, who was at the Asamankese Circuit Court, Mr. Amankwah threatened to kill his daughter if she told the mother of what ensued between them.

The young lady who was afraid with her stepfather’s threats couldn’t tell anyone until she got defiled again on a cocoa farm when the mother noticed the changes in her daughter before she confessed after interrogation.

“Kofi Amankwah stays with the wife and her stepdaughter, and after defiling the girl outside, he threatened 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 couldn’t 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,” Collins reported.
