The Police are investigating a case in which a man and his two sons allegedly defiled a 14-year-old girl in turns at Asaia-Yeboah, near Akyem Tafo in the Eastern Region, leading to a pregnancy.
Abraham Kenaufour, 48, an ‘Akpeteshi’ distiller, has been arrested, but his sons, Solomon Kenaufour and Bright Tetteh aged between 20 and 27, are on the run.
They were said to have sexually abused the girl on different occasions, when she went to them for financial assistance due to neglect on the part of her father.
According to sources who spoke to the Ghanaian Times the victim lived with her parents and siblings in the same house together with the suspect and his sons.
However, the victim have always complained that her father refuse to take responsibility of her and therefore go to Abraham to collect money for her upkeep.
Abraham who willingly gave them money decided one day to take advantage of her and asked her for sex in exchange of money.
The victim who had no choice, however, obliged and allowed him to have sex with her on countless occasions at his akpeteshie spot where he often distilled the wine.
The sources said one of Abraham’s sons, Solomon realised what his father has been doing and approached the victim and demanded for sex, threatening that he would reveal the secrete if she refused to allow him to have his turn.
The victim who was afraid that the secret would be revealed also obliged and Solomon had sex with her at the time when his father had travelled.
The second son of the suspect, Bright, who also became suspicious about the diabolical acts involving his father and brother threatened the victim and took her to Oterkpolu, a village near Asesewa for one month, where he continually had sex with her.
Abraham, on return from his journey, learnt of the ordeal of his second son, Bright and asked him to bring back the victim and he obliged.
Two weeks later, the sister of the victim detected that she was pregnant and reported to Abraham, accusing his sons to have impregnated the girl but he denied it.
The matter was reported to Ark Foundation and later to the Domestic Violence and Victims support unit, here.
The Eastern Regional Deputy Crime Officer, ASP Stephen Akowuah confirmed the story to the Ghanaian Times and said Abraham is in custody assisting in investigations.
