A man believed to be a Togolese has allegedly caused severe burns on his three-year-old daughter at Obuasi Ahansoyewodea in the Obuasi East District of the Ashanti region.
The 35-year-old father who placed the child on hot water said the girl was disrespecting him and also displaying irresponsible behaviour at home.
Adom News’s Isaac K. Normanyo reports that the accused initially ignored narrating what happened to the little girl, but was rather lamenting that his child obeys the mother and ignores his instruction.
He then admitted that “the bruises on her body is not because she is sick.”
“Her mother has taught not to respect me, now when I want her to do something or take something for me, she ignores me,” he told the Adom News correspondent.
“When I have food right now, she will come closer to eat and if she wants to attend to nature’s call or urinate, she will release them on herself,” he added.
The three-year-old is currently is receiving treatment at the Obuasi Government Hospital.
The Commander at Obuasi Division of the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU), Supt. Coledeus Adagbe who narrated the incident to Adom News says the man has been arrested.
