A 26-year-old farmer who sexually abused a six-year-old girl at Agbogbloshie in Accra has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court.
Joshua Boyoor was found guilty by the Court presided over by Mrs Christina Cann at the end of the trial.
He was held on the charge of defilement.
The prosecution led by Chief Inspector Simon Tekpor said the complainant was a 37-year-old petty trader residing at Dansoman–Agege in Accra.
The prosecution said the complainant’s wife worked at Agbogbloshie, Accra.
It said the victim was the complainant’s daughter. The accused person now convict, also resides at Agbogbloshie.
The prosecution said on September 9, 2022, at about 7: 30pm, the victim had gone to play with her friends at where Boyoor lived.
It said Boyoor lured the victim into his room, undressed the victim and had sex with her. After the act, the prosecution said Boyoor warned the victim not to tell her parents.
