The Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police service at Ashaiman is holding a 39-year-old man who purportedly molested his 16-year-old daughter sexually.
Peter Barabu, the suspect, a steel bender who resides at Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region, was said to be having sexual intercourse with his own daughter for over two years.
Information available to DAILY GUIDE revealed that the victim and her 13-year-old brother were staying with their paternal grandfather at Klikor in the Volta Region when Peter Barabu brought them to reside with him at Ashaiman some three years ago.
The alleged sexual game was said to have started somewhere in December 2012 during the Christmas festivities when the suspect, who was sleeping alone, ordered his daughter, who was then sleeping on the floor in the same room, to join him in the bed.
Victim reportedly obliged and while they were sleeping, the victim allegedly detected that the father was making some sexual advances towards her by fondling her breasts. She quickly protested but the father persisted and allegedly had sexual intercourse with her.
According to the victim, the practice continued until June 18, 2015 at about 9:00 p.m. when Peter Barabu, in another attempt to have sex with her, was resisted by her.
Suspect allegedly became offended and purportedly beat up the victim with a torchlight until she gave in.
Immediately after the incident, the victim was said to have vacated the room and sought refuge in neighbour ‘s house and on the following day a formal complaint was made to the DOVVSU at Ashaiman.
A police medical report form was issued to the victim who attended hospital for examination, and the medical report confirmed the act.
Peter Barabu was arrested but denied the offence in his caution statement to the police as investigations into the matter is ongoing.
