A 40-year-old welder Emmanuel Kwesi Yevu on Tuesday broke down in tears, saying he was sorry for having sexx with his 13-year-old daughter when he was put before an Accra Circuit Court.

Yevu charged with defilement and incest had his plea reserved.

The court presided over by Mrs Ivy Heward-Mills remanded him to reappear on Friday, January 27.

Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sarah Acquah told the court that the complainant was the victim’s uncle.

Yevu is the father of the victim. Since the death of victim’s mother, she had been living with the father at Omanjor in Accra.

ASP Acquah said during October 2011, the victim was sleeping when Yevu forced her and had sexx with her on two occasions.

After the acts, the victim informed her father that she had not menstruated for the past three months.

ASP Acquah said Yevu knowing very well that the victim was pregnant, gave the victim medicine to swallow and insert some of the medicine into her vaginaa.

Soon after inserting the medicine, the victim began to complain of abdominal pains and she was rushed to the hospital and a report was made to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) at Odorkor Police station.

The victim was issued with a medical form while her father was arrested by the Police and during interrogation admitted the offence.
