A young boy of age 13 is reported to have had anal sex with a baby girl just a year and a half old at Adiembra near Nyinahini in the Ashanti region, an act considered as a taboo in the area and a crime under Ghana’s laws.
The suspect (name withheld) has been arrested by the Nyinahini Police and the case is being forwarded to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) in the Ashanti region.
The baby is currently on admission receiving medical treatment.
The young boy is said to have carried the innocent baby girl to an obscure place and defiled her through the anus, on Tuesday, December 5, this year.
Around 5:30pm on the said day, the mother of the baby left the house to sell some items, leaving the baby under the care of one Rabi Frimpongmaa.
The 13-year old boy is said to have gone to Rabi and told her that the baby’s mother had sent him to come for the innocent toddler.
Rabi believed he boy and allowed him to take the baby away. About an hour later, the baby’s mother returned home and when Rabi told her what had happened, she said she had not sent anyone to come for her.
After a while, the young boy returned home with the baby feeling very sick and crying. This prompted the mother to suspect foul play.
The mother decided to inspect the crying baby girl and released that she had been defiled.
She raised an alarm and then reported the case to the Nyinahini Police, from where the young boy was arrested for questioning.
ASP Ambrose Aboagye, the Nyinahini District Police Commander, who confirmed the story, said the suspect and the victim stay in the same vicinity.
ASP Aboagye noted that the 13 year-old-boy is suspected to have defiled the baby so the police are keeping him to assist in investigations.
The police capo also stated that the matter would be forwarded to the DOVSU division, who are mandated to handle issues concerning minors.
