In spite of today being World Children’s Day, a woman believed to be pregnant, has reportedly abused her five-year-old step daughter.

She is said to have poured hot water on her feet and buttocks for bedwetting.

Rebecca Awanu has since been arrested and detained at the Amasaman Police Station in the Greater Accra Region.

Giving an account of what purportedly happened, the headmaster of Odumprala MA Basic School, Emmanuel Atisey, disclosed to Oman Fm that the victim – who attends that school – had not been to school for three weeks and was reported to have been suffering from malaria.

She reported to school last Wednesday and Gentian violet had been smeared on her feet which had serious burns.

The victim refused to disclose how she sustained the injury but the cat was let out of the bag when Mr Atisey reportedly asked his girl-child coordinator to examine the minor critically.  The coordinator was reportedly shocked to see the victim’s buttocks rubbed with GV and burns showing as well. The educational directorate in the area was contacted for instructions and later the victim was taken to the hospital.

The poor girl had been kept at home since October 26 when the incident happened, without any medical treatment, as the father is reported to have said that he didn’t have money to take her to the hospital.

Police report revealed that the vagina of the girl had been damaged and infected per the report from the Amasaman Hospital.

The dastardly act was confirmed by the Divisional Crime Officer, DSP Michael Happy Addae.

The family of the victim, sources have revealed, had refused to send her to the hospital for further treatment after the school authorities had paid for her initial hospital bills.
