Confirming the story to DAILY GUIDE, Chief Superintendent Francis Yiribaare, the Amasaman Divisional Commander, said the victim lives with her parents at Ayawaso near Ofankor.

In June 2018, the victim’s school organised a programme to sensitize pupils on sexual and gender-based violence.

After the programme, the victim informed her class teacher that her father had been inserting his fingers into her vagina.

The victim narrated that Emmanuel Asamenu started this conduct when she was only seven years old.

She further stated that in the course of fingering her, the father had sex with her one day.

This, according to the victim, usually occurred anytime the mother was absent.

Chief Superintendent Yiribaare averred that the headmistress of the school was immediately informed and a formal complaint was lodged with the police.
