An Accra Circuit Court has sentenced a man to four years in prison for defiling his 16-year old daughter.

According to the victim, her father (Abubakari Bediako) constantly forced her to have sex with him when her mother was away at night.

She revealed this to her mother after she discovered the daughter was pregnant. The victim said she did not inform her mother for fear of being punished.
