The alleged act occurred at Tutuka Tiatiaso, a suburb of Obuasi.
Mr Adinkra is said to have inserted his penis in the victim’s vagina and anus several times.
The mother of the victim, Doris Botchey, said the child for some time now, kept falling sick and it was through medical examinations they found out she had been defiled.
Speaking to Adom News‘ correspondent, Isaac K. Normanyo, the victim said her silence was borne out of fear that she may die after being warned by her rapist.
Chief Inspector, Josephine Adom, the Obuasi Divisional DOVVSU station officer, who confirmed the incident said the father has reported the case.
The doctor’s report confirmed defilement after which the suspect was arrest and arraigned before court.
He is set to reappear in two weeks’ time.
