The Eastern Regional branch of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service (GPS) has arrested a 38-year-old resident of Asokore-Zongo, a suburb of Koforidua, Prosper Gli, for defiling his biological daughter.
Prosper Gli, popularly known as Mawuko, reportedly decided to ‘taste’ his 15-year-old Junior High School (JHS) three (3) student, before any man snatches her away from him. The young girl who could, however, not withstand the strong ‘rod’ of the father reported the case to her teachers, who in turn informed the police, leading to the arrest of the suspect.
Confirming the story to The Chronicle, Superintendent Eunice Annor, officer-in-charge of Eastern Regional DOVVSU said Prosper Gli has been having sexual bouts with his daughter since August 2014.
The victim, according to the police boss, was staying with the biological mother in Accra but decided to come to stay with the father and step-mother in Asokore-Zongo, Koforidua, only to be subjected to sexual abuse by the father.
She continued that, the victim has sexually suffered in the hands of the father until February 4, when the police intervened. Superintendent Annor explained that, on that fateful day, the father after church service decided to insert the daughter with an unknown medicine under the pretext of curing her (victim) from an unknown infection.
The paper was told that, after inserting the victim with the unknown medicine, Prosper Gli told the daughter that, the medicine would be effective after he has pushed it with his penis, a usual trick he had been using.
The daughter, however, decided to report the conduct of the father to one of her teachers who in turn reported to the Headmistress of the school. The Headmistress reported the case to the police, leading to the arrest of Mawuko.
According to the police, a medical report has confirmed that the young girl has been defiled.
