A Kumasi Circuit Court has sentenced 41-year-old pastor Paul Kwame Nkansah to 22 years in prison for defilement and 24 years for incest.
This was after he pleaded guilty to both charges.
The sentences are to run concurrently.
Pastor Kwame Nkansah of African Faith Tabernacle Church who doubles as a carpenter in December last year accused his daughter of breaking her virginity too early.
Although, the child denied her father’s accusation, he impressed upon her with intimidation to admit under duress.
Pastor Kwame Nkansah is reported to have had sex with his daughter on Monday, December 7, 2020 to exorcise her from an omen for engaging in early sex.
He subsequently warned his daughter not to inform anyone of his actions else she will die.
The suspect has since then continuously had sex with the girl till he was arrested after a tip-off on Wednesday, September 1.
The victim is currently in the care of a shelter in Kumasi preparing for her Basic Education Certificate Eamination (BECE).
