26-year old man arrested for abusing son

The Manhyia Divisional Police Command has arrested a 26-year old National Service person, Ebenezer Osei Bonsu, for physically assaulting his three-year old son for damaging his phone and also wetting his bed.

Bonsu is alleged to have used cable and cane to whip the boy causing injuries to his head and back.
He is currently in police custody awaiting prosecussion.

 

Police

The Manhyia Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Mr Kwaku Buah, told the Daily Graphic that the suspect was arrested last weekend following a complaint by the mother of the boy, Barbara Obeng.

According to the police, Barbara and Bonsu were lovers but broke up. However, he said the relationship produced a boy and the parents shared custody of the child.

He said Bonsu who is doing his national service in Accra usually takes custody of the child on weekend when he comes on visit in Kumasi and returns the child when he is returning to Accra.

However, he said the last time he came for the child, he refused to returned him and a resident in the area where he stays called the mother to come for the child as the father was mistreating him.

Refusal

 

Mr Buah said when Barbara, who is shop attendant went to the child, the father refused to hand him over to the mother and it had to take the police intervention to retrieve the child.

He said when the police went to pick the child, “We realised that he had a cut and swell on his forehead with gentian violet paint on his head.

He said when the police tried to carry him, the boy started crying uncontrollably and when his shirt was taken off, “it was then we saw the marks on his back.”

 

Mr Buah said the suspect had admitted whipping the boy for causing damage to his phone and also wetting his bed.

However, the police commander said the bruises on the boy’s back could be from a cable or cane. He said the father would not tell the police what he used to whip the boy.

Medical report

Mr Buah said the police was yet to receive the medical report from the hospital to know the extent of damage caused to the child and the kind of medical intervention he would need.

As the time of filing this report, he said the boy was still on admission at the Manhyia Hospital.

He said there would be the need for a scan on the boy’s head to know the severity of the cut and swell on the boy’s head.
