According to prosecution, Gabriel is married to the complainant’s sister whom the victim lived with, while Joshua also resides in the same house.

Prosecution said the victim while at her auntie’s place attends school and visit her mother (complainant) during weekend.

Sergeant Aniagyei said between 2017 and 2019, Joshua began to have sex with the victim in their room at the least opportunity when they were alone.

Prosecution said between January and March this year, Gabriel observed that “there was amorous relationship” between the victim and his son Joshua so he warned him.

Not quite long, prosecution said Gabriel also started having sexual intercourse with the victim in the same room and he also warned her (victim) not tell anyone.

Prosecution said the victim who could no longer withstand the sexual abuse any longer from “father and son” informed her mother during her a visit to her.

On September 23, this year, the complainant reported the matter to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit in Accra and a medical form was issued to the victim to seek medical care.

The prosecutor said the two accused persons were picked up by the Police and in their respective caution statements, they admitted the offence.
