The two siblings have been living together and having sexual escapades for years, prosecuting detective, Inspector John Asare Bediako, told the court.

He disclosed that the siblings have even produced two children out of their abominable acts.

The prosecution said the accused persons reside at Bronyibima, a suburb of Elmina in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Municipality of the Central Region.

The case was reported to the police after Maame Adwoa refused to disclose the father of her children despite all efforts by her family.

However, the accused later confessed after the chief and elders of the community got involved in uncovering who the father of her children were.

Accra-based Joy FM reports that the two siblings were on Tuesday, October 16, 2018, paraded through the Bronyibima town, as part of rituals to pacify the gods to avert any curse on the community.

They were later handed over to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) in Cape Coast.

Meanwhile, the Court presided over by Kofi Ametewee charged them after they both confessed to the crime of incest.
