A 17-year-old female student of Takoradi Senior High School in Ghana has revealed how her biological father broke her virginity and how he has been having sexual intercourse with her for the past nine months, at his Adiembra residence near Sekondi.
The girl whose name was not mentioned by the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service, said her parents were divorced and her father was the one taking care of her and a reason she yielded to his threatened so that he will not stop supporting her if she told anybody.
The poor girl broken her silence after nine months her dad has been having sexual intercourse with her.
She said: “At the age of 16, I had not slept with any boy or man until after my father returned from Spain last December and started having sex with me.”
“If my father doesn’t pay my fees no one will do it. My mother does not have the means to take care of me in school so I was afraid to inform anybody about my ordeal; not even my mother.”
She also revealed that her father stopped her from going to church in fear that she might inform some of the church leaders of what he had been doing to her.
Revealing why she eventually decided to speak up, the girl said that on Friday August 23, 2013, after she had returned from school her father demanded to have sex with her but she refused and as a result, he gathered all her belongings including school uniforms, text and exercise books and set them ablaze.
“After that he still wanted to have sex with me so I ran away to a neighbour’s house and it was there that I broke the news to some of the residents”
Meanwhile, the personnel of the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service have arrested the father and placed him in custody pending further investigations.
