A report obtained from Starr FM reveals that one Ghanaian pastor who founded the African Faith Church at Nhinahin has been arrested for allegedly defiling his sixteen-year-old daughter.
He allegedly committed the act under the guise that he was directed by the Holy Spirit to cleanse the girl who he claimed had committed the sin of pre-marital sex. The suspect was picked up by the Ashanti regional Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit. (DOVVSU).
Giving background details on what happened, Starrfm.com.gh said the 41-year-old Pastor Kwame Nkansah who doubles as a carpenter, accused his biological daughter of breaking her virginity in December last year.
Although the teenager vehemently denied the charges leveled against her, she was forced to admit it under pressure. This opened the floodgates for her father to abuse her sexually by saying the Holy Spirit has asked him to cleanse her of the bad omen of premarital sex.
The young girl who felt uncomfortable with the act reportedly opened up to some neighbors through which the police picked intelligence on the matter and finally arrested the pastor.
The regional coordinator for DOVVSU Superintendent Suzanna Dery said the suspect after the act warned his child not to open up to any person else she would die. She further explained that the girl was traumatized when she was rescued by the police and was subsequently sent to the hospital for a medical check-up and she is doing very well.
Supt Dery disclosed the suspect earlier denied the crime but later confessed to the investigating officer. She added that the victim has currently been relocated from the fatherâ€™s house to Kumasi.
