A father caught raping his 14-year-old daughter defended himself saying he has the right to do so as she is his daughter thus giving him the right to ‘taste her’.
The 48-year-old Ghanaian man identified as Agyeman was caught on July 18 after neighbors responded to screams emanating from his apartment.
Upon entry, neighbors found the raunchy father forcing himself on his 14-year old Junior Secondary School, JSS2 daughter.
A resident of the house while narrating the shameful event said: “Baba Adjoa has been living in the yard for over 12 years but we do not know if he is possessed because at times, he behaved like a mad man. He is an all purpose labourer but most times, you will find him at ‘ogogoro’ (illicit gin) palours drinking to stupor.
“His wife left him in 2008 and since then, he has been living with his children all alone. On that day, I was sleeping in my room because I came back from work in the morning, when I heard a fellow tenant, Iya Calabar, knocking on my door to come and help her find out why Adjoa was screaming in their room.
“I went out immediately and met two other neighbours who were banging on Agyeman’s door asking him to open but he refused. We actually thought he was beating his daughter because he is used to beating them mercilessly.
“But when we heard the girl screaming that her daddy wanted to kill her, we had to break the door and what we found shocked all of us.
“Agyeman was naked and having sex with his daughter. We had to force him off the small girl. Of course, we gave him some beating but what he said was a surprise to us all.
“He was saying that he had every right to have sex with his daughter, after all he was the one who gave birth to her and had been taking care of her. On interrogation, the girl said her father has been molesting her since last year and had vowed to kill her if she ever told anyone.
“Some youths in the area wanted to lynch him but they were prevailed upon by elders who saved him and took him away. We have reported the case to the police”.
