A chainsaw operator identified as Akwasi Yeboah and popularly known as Osebor has been apprehended by the Nyankumasi Ahenkro Police. He was arrested for repeatedly raping his 13-year-old niece. The victim is a final year Junior High School student in the Assin South District of the Central Region.
The victim stayed with the chainsaw operator. The 13-year-old niece to Akwasi Yeboah left home and went to stay with him claiming that she had been neglected by her parents. Although Akwasi was taking good care of the needs of his niece, he took sole advantage for it to assault her sexually on so many occasions.
The victim made it known that she was used by her uncle as a sexual object. It was under the guise of buying her sanitary pad and providing money for upkeep.
She said, “My uncle smooches my breast and kisses me during the night time. The sad thing is that he usually gives me a soft drink mixed with hard drug or sleeping tablet and has sexual interactions with me after it has rendered me unconscious”.
Also, the 13-year-old revealed another shocking moment with regards to the incident. In an attempt to report the incident to her mother, she was beaten mercilessly by her mother. Her mother claimed that she was disgracing her uncle (chainsaw operator).
The Assin South District Police Command has arrested Akwasi Yeboah as investigations are going on.
