The Standard newspaper is privy to a native of Kotu, the accused is being held at the Bakoteh Police Station as he awaits appearance before court in the next several days.
A neighbour who spoke to The Standard on condition of strict anonymity said they started nurturing suspicion about the alleged crime when the man’s young daughter “started displaying a burgeoning bulge on the stomach”.
She continued: “Naturally our suspicions fell squarely on him because he was the only one living with the daughter in the house since his wife passed away. The matter was reported to the police and the father and daughter were all arrested. Under police investigation the father cracked and admitted impregnating his daughter”.
Before going to press last evening, we contacted the police public relations officer, ASP David Kujabi, about the veracity of the report, he would not be drawn on the details, but briefly asserted:
“Yes, I have heard about the case but the details are very sketchy and I cannot say more until I go to the office tomorrow.”
