Hatred for others has become so difficult to contain in this country that step father’s are now hating their own step children. Grown people who should know better are the ones subjecting little ones to death through ungodly practices. The hatred of a 30-year old man towards his step child has resulted in the death of the child in Obrayoko electoral area of Assin Awisem in the Central Region of Ghana. Obrayoko is a smaller community in the Assin Awisem township. It is made up of mainly farmers and labourers who’s daily routine is either farm in the community or go outside the community in such of labourer job.
Kwadwo Antwi 30 years, is a Labourer and a Mason from Obrayoko community who went in search of job at Wassa Saa in Wassa-Akropong, a big city and the capital of Wassa Amenfi East Municipal Assembly. Upon his return to the Obrayoko community last month 4 October 2020, he came along with a female partner and a 5 year old girl. The girl is believed to be the daughter of the partner Kwadwo Antwi brought from Wassa Saa to live with. According to Mr. Ayuba Andoh the Assemblyman of the Obrayoko electoral area, Kwadwo Antwi has been assaulting the little child at any chance he gets to the extent of threatening to even murder her if she doesn’t stop urinating on herself.
The partner of the Kwadwo Antwi who is the biological mother of the child kept complaining to neighbours to plead with her boyfriend to stop harassing the child but anytime she went outside to seek for help, neighbours did little to help her and the child. Friends of Kennedy, an NGO (Non Governmental Organization) that seeks the interest of the Assin people, went to Obrayoko to register their National Health Insurance Scheme cards for them on Saturday at no cost, it was there Kwadwo Antwi went to call her partner to come prepare dinner for him to eat. The little girl had gone to private on herself and the mother was waiting to clean her up. Kwadwo been the step father to the child voluntary told his partner to go and make the food whiles he takes care of the child.
As soon as the mother went, Kwadwo took the child and carried her to the nearest bush with the aim of going to clean her up, but stoned her right there for disgracing him and the mother in public. After stoning her to death, Kwadwo took to his heels and headed straight to the Twifu Praso forest in an attempt to runaway. Eye witness who saw the speed at which Kwadwo was running came to report the incident to the Assemblyman of the area Mr. Ayuba Andoh, who called for the youth to trace Kwadwo in the forest.
Kwadwo was arrested at Twifu Praso in a bid to flee to Cape Coast. Twifu Praso police officers traced his routes to Obrayoko community where Kwadwo showed them where he left the body of the girl. The body has been deposited at the Twifu Praso Government Hospital waiting for an autopsy report.
