A 35-year-old man has found himself in the firm grips of the Ashaiman branch of Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) for allegedly fingering his 9-year-old biological daughter.
The suspect, Abraham Tei, was said to have indecently assaulted his 9-year-old daughter with his fingers on several occasions.
Information gathered by the “Love and Marriage Eye” newspaper indicated that the suspect and the complainant, who happens to be the mother of the victim, were a married couple and had two children aged 6 and 9 years respectively.
It is stated that the couple have divorced due to some marital problems with the mother of the victim vacating her matrimonial home leaving the children behind for the suspect to take care of.
The source stated that the suspect sent the children including the 9-year-old victim to their mother for holidays. The mother, who was bathing the victim, detected that the girl experienced pain around the vagina whenever the sponge got around the vagina. When the victim was confronted she mentioned her father as the cause of the pain.
The girl explained to her mother that her father had on several occasions inserted his fingers into her vagina. A complaint was immediately lodged at the Ashaiman branch of DOVVSU where a medical report form was issued for the victim to visit the Tema General Hospital for examination and treatment.
The result from the hospital confirmed the offence, compelling the police to arrest the suspect who vehemently denied the offence in his statement to the police.
