GHANA: Father Supports Couple Who Abused His 2 Year Old Son

The father of the two-year-old boy who lost all five fingers on his left hand following months of abuse has risen to the defence of the suspected abusers.

According to reports by Joy FM, the father of the boy Mr Nana Yaw has ordered that his one-and-a-half-year-old son be sent to a couple named Mr and Mrs Rita Oti because the couple was extremely kind to him.

He is pleading with the police to release two who are currently in police detention.

It is also reported that Mr Nana Yaw wants Mr Oti and his wife to be allowed to continue to take care of the boy whilst doctors attend to him.

Last week, media houses in Ghana broke the chilling story of a two-year-old boy in the Ashanti Regional capital who had become a victim of grisly abuse.

It was said that the boy was sent to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital on September 29, 2015 with his left hand wrapped with a dirty rag.

When the rag was removed, doctors observed the fingers were not functioning and, therefore, performed surgery to remove the dead fingers to save the rest of the hands.

The police arrested the boy's guardians on suspicions that the injury on the hand was caused by a hot iron.

Nana Oti and his wife claimed that the boy had dipped his hand in hot water and suffered the burns thereafter.

But doctors contradicted this claim, insisting the nature of the injury did not support their claim. They said the burn was too extensive to have been caused by hot water.
