60-year-old man who slept with 3 daughters fined ¢12k

A 60-year-old man has been fined GH₵12,000 for having sexual intercourse with his three biological daughters.

The traditional authorities of Assin Andoe in the Assin South District also demanded some items including 3 full-grown sheep, crates of assorted drinks, and bottles of exotic schnapps from the sexagenarian.

The suspect, Kwame Atta, popularly known as Showboy admitted to having sexual intercourse with his own daughters when he appeared before the traditional leaders at the Assin Andoe Palace.

After deliberations, the Chief charged the culprits accordingly.

The three victims whose names are being withheld are said to be in their twenties.

Speaking to Adom News‘ Samuel Alfred Amoh, the Linguist of Assin Andoe, Nana Yaw Oteng said the girls have suffered years of sexual assault from their father.

But they were afraid to report the assault due to the death threat from both father and mother.

The issue came to light following a strange disease that bedeviled the family for many months with no cure, hence the revelation about the incestuous acts.

The culprit who fainted after the verdict of the chiefs, was sent to Assin Manso health center for resuscitation.

Okyeame Yaw Oteng advised girls who are going through similar ordeals to report such cases.

Meanwhile, the chiefs have reported the issue to the Assin South Police.
