The outspoken radio and television journalist, captain Smart is at it again and this time he is not acting politically as he usually does, but as a patriotic citizen. He has issued a strong caution to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU), to act fast on a very worrying child abuse case at the Obuase case this morning.
Speaking today during his own hosted program on Angel TV dubbed "Anopa Bofoɔ", the courageous journalist broke the news of a three year old gilr who has been physically abused by his step father at Obuasi in the Ashanti region.
According to the reporter, the mother of the three year old girl who is a Togolese is currently staying with her Togolese boyfriend who is not even legally married to him. Sources also confirms that the lady is at the same time nine months pregnant for this same man and he used to take his step daughter along with him anytime he goes to work.
Sadly, the man allegedly poured hot water on the 3 year old child just because she doesn't obey nor respect him. Looking at the current condition of the bruised child, it could be concluded that the man intentionally poured the water at the backside of the child and after that he forced her to sit in the pot of hot water which burnt her anus as well as private part. See the image of the bruised child below;But interestingly, the head of the Obuasi DOVVSU department when giving his report on the case was trying to cover some things up by saying the step father didn't deliberately poured the hot water on the child, but the child rather accidentally sat in the pot of hot water while playing near the fire.
Meanwhile an eyewitness who is a pastor at Obuasi also gave a different account altogether by confirming that the man used to abuse the pregnant lady together with his step daughter each and every day. According to him at the happen of the incident he went to the room of the man where he found two canes which were evidential to his claims.Upon hearing his reporter and the witness side of the story, captain Smart warned the head of DOVVSU not to try any delay tactics with this issue. He dared him to immediately arrest the abuser or else he himself will come to the Obuase township to initiate the arrest of the step father of the child.
"You can't just listen to the man's side of the story to give your account on the issue, carry out the necessary investigation and arrest the culprit as soon as possible. If you try to play any tricks with this issue I'll come over to cause the arrest of the abuser myself", he threatened.
Looking at how the 3 year old girl has been physically abused by her step father do you think there is the need to carry any further investigation on this case?
