Suspect free as 7-yr old defiled girl’s parents can’t afford GHc 200 for medical report

The family of a defiled seven-year-old girl is struggling to raise GHc 200 as a bill for the release of a medical report that will provide the evidence for the police to arrest the suspect.

The mother of the alleged victim, a laundress, in Agona Nyakrom in the Central Region, told theghanareport.com that the family could not afford the money a doctor at the Swedru Government Hospital demanded to release the report.

“We don’t have that money. When I took her to the hospital, I had only GHc 30 cedis on me,” she said, as she made a passionate appeal for the public to help.

Narrating circumstances leading to the family’s plight, the victim’s mother said, “My daughter asked for money to go and ease herself. When she returned, she was not herself; she sat quietly. I asked what was wrong with her, she insisted she was ok. But later on, when I was bathing her, she cried when I was washing her private parts.

“I questioned her about what was wrong, but my daughter refused to talk,” she recalled.

Having noticed a swelling in the little girl’s vagina after a careful examination a few days later, the mother said she questioned her about it again, but the kindergarten pupil still kept quiet.

But the situation changed immediately she threatened to cane the girl and insert ginger into her private parts.

It was at this point that the girl confessed that on her way to the public toilet, a man called her and forcibly slept with her in his room.

Her angry mother asked about the identity of the man, whose name the little girl said she did not know, but led her mother to the location of the incident.

“The man, who is popularly known as Baba, said my daughter came to the house, but he didn’t do anything to her. He only inserted his fingers into her vagina.”

My father defiled me – admits girl – Kenyan Woman

Angry with what had happened, she said she went to the Agona Nyakrom Police Station, where she was issued a medical form on Friday, May 8.

She was told at the Nyakrom Health Centre that the doctor was attending to an emergency.

She returned to the police station, where she said the police advised that she could go later for the medical examination, and return for the appropriate action to be taken.

Not satisfied with that, she said she sent the girl to the Swedru Government Hospital, where the doctor confirmed that the girl had been defiled because her hymen was torn.

“The doctors said there were bruises inside her vagina to show that she has been sexually molested.

“The doctor said before the report could be released, I have to pay GHc 200, but I told them I had only GHc 30 on me.

“But he said the GHc 30 was not enough. The doctor said I needed to pay the GHc 200 before he could fill the police medical form.  Because he would be a witness during the trial when the case goes to court.

She, therefore, appealed to the public to come to her aid to enable her  get justice for her daughter.

      They may not have heard of the little girl’s plight for them to go to her aid. We, as citizens, can also help. Where do we send any help?

    Seth Bopke are you the one reporting this case?If yes then then I would like you to do a detailed report about the case because it seems what you telling readers is what you have heard from the mother of the victim. Yourself did not go to the hospital to find out what she is saying is true or not..Please go to hospital and find out which doctor examine the victim and the real fact surrounding the case…Because in this case only the doctor can proff who is saying the true because there so many inocent people in our prisons because they didn’t have any body to represent them court.This is a serious allegation
