A father of eight children has stunned residents of an Akwatia suburb in the Eastern Region after allegedly subjecting his daughter to multiple bouts of sex and eventually impregnating the 16-year-old Junior High School (JHS) girl. Her mother, according to reports, was herself impregnated after she was allegedly raped by the same man some 16 years ago following which she gave birth to the girl.
Yaw Asare, a.k.a. Yaw Wutri, a notorious diamond dealer in the Akwatia township is currently facing a charge of incest at an Asamankese court.
What worsened the matter was that after impregnating the girl, Wutri caused an illegal abortion for the teenager at a hospital. When the suspect appeared before the Asamankese Circuit court last month, he was granted a GH¢3,000 (¢30 million) bail and walked free.
According to reports, the suspect was so pleased with the verdict that he took to the streets of Akwatia clad in white robes and smeared with talcum powder.
Narrating her ordeal at the hands of her biological father to Daily Guide, the teenage girl said, “The doctor examined me and said I was pregnant and after injecting me, he inserted an instrument into my private parts and twisted it around. With a second instrument he drew some blood and asked me to stand up.
I was given another injection after which I was discharged and we went back to Akwatia,” she said amidst tears. Regina (not her real name), now 17, told Daily Guide that she suffered the ordeal at the hands of her biological father when sometime in December of last year he asked her to come and wash his clothes. The girl, who then lived in her stepmother’s house, obliged her father’s request and dashed to go and perform the chore.
Upon completing the task, her father asked her to come into the room to dry the washed clothing.“When I entered the room he asked whether I had ever slept with a man before, to which I answered in the negative. He then said, ‘I as your father will teach you how to do it,” she recounted.
The father, she went on, then wearing a pair of boxer shorts, grabbed her and had sexual intercourse with her. “My father pushed me onto his bed and forcefully had sex with me after which he asked me to leave his room.” According to her, she left with blood dripping all over her legs. “I was crying and a young man named Dema called me and asked to know what was amiss. I told him that my father had just had sex with me,” she said.
