The two blood brothers, Amin Alabani, 32, and Mashud Alabani, 27, have been arrested in Ghana for allegedly gang-raping their 15-year-old step-sister, Daily Graphic reports.
The two brothers who are are both married, confessed to the incest which happened at their home in Katariga, a community in the Sagnarigu District of the Northern Region, when they were summoned to appear before the chief of the area, Katariga Kamo Naa.
The residents of the area who had gathered at the public hearing, were shocked as the brothers confessed that the day they were caught defiling the teenager, was not the first time they had s*x with her as they had done it several times.
The victim also narrated her ordeal at the hands of her two step-brothers, saying that on March 5, 2016, she was defiled by the two brothers while she slept in Amin’s room where she had gone to watch television in the night.
After forcibly having s*x with her, they warned her not to inform anyone about it but that she informed her mother of the assault but that she was branded a liar and a peddler of falsehood by her mother.
The brothers continued to having carnal knowledge of the girl till they were caught on March 12, 2016, when Mashud forcibly had s*x with her in his room when she returned from an errand.
It was the victim’s cry for help that attracted neighbours who caught the suspect in the act.
As their punishment, the brothers have been banished from the community by Katariga Kamo Naa whilst their father, Mba Alabani, has also disowned them for the abominable act.
