Strange things continue to happen in our world, as a 45 year old man has been arrested in Obuasi for allegedly impregnating his 21 year-old daughter. It was reported to the Obuasi Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) by the victim after she was beaten by her father, Efo Red.
Reports say that the man has repeatedly been having sex with his daughter, the act which culminated to her three pregnancies, two of which she was forced to get rid of.
According to one of the neighbours, the victim had refused to abort the third pregnancy which resulted to her father beating her to compel her to abort it.
The victim refused to abort a third pregnancy which she is carrying now and that is why he beat her”, the neighbour said.
According to Adom News, the victim was brought by her mother to stay with her father who abandoned them for many years.
Furthermore, Efo red who was living with another wife when his supposed daughter was brought to him allegedly divorced the woman.
The DOVVSU Commander has said the case for his trial is being prepared to bring the suspect to court.
Reports of a similar incident had equally gotten to us earlier this year where a 42 year old man was arrested by the police in Elubo for forcefully engaging in sexual intercourse with his 17 year old daughter. The man had also resorted to drugging his daughter to unconsciousness so as to have easy access on her.
Efo Red should really be brought to book so that other men who engage in such acts would desist from it. Cases of incest are mostly forceful ones as we can see in these two independent stories.
