BAD FAMILY: How Girl Was Impregnated By Grandfather

A 64-year-old man was on Thursday arraigned before an Accra circuit court on counts of defilement and incest.
The accused, Emmanuel Oko Lartey, a businessman, was said to have defiled his 15-year-old granddaughter, resulting in a pregnancy. The victim delivered 3 weeks ago at a secluded place allegedly provided by Lartey.
Lartey pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded in custody to reappear on January 30, 2014.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (Mrs) Sarah Acquah, the Prosecutor, told the court presided over by Ms Ellen Amoah that the victim lived close to the accused person who happened to be her maternal grandfather at Korle Gonno in Accra.
The prosecution told the court that Lartey had sexual intercourse with the victim on two occasions when she went to run errands for him last year.
According to the prosecution, the parents of the victim later realized the victim was 32 weeks pregnant and upon interrogation, she disclosed that her grandfather was responsible.
However, the accused person managed to hide the victim at an unknown location until she delivered. Lartey was picked up after investigations and charged with the offences.
