A three years old child was almost beaten to death by his Ghanaian dad for bedwetting and being stubborn.
The 26-year-old father, Ebenezer Nana Bonsu, no longer stays with his wife and was given his son who stays with his mum to look after as she wanted him to celebrate his 3rd birthday with his dad.
He used a cane and naked wire to beat his son because he beds wets.
According to some neighbors, they said, the child had suffered constant abuse in the hands of his father and was shocked to see what he had done this time to the little boy which made them alert the child’s mum.
The man was arrested while the little boy was taken to the Manhyia Hospital in Kumasi where he is currently receiving treatment.
Ebenezer was arraigned before a Ghanaian court yesterday for assault and causing harm to a child. He said he was innocent and that his actions were only to discipline his son
His lawyer put forward a bail for his release because he had been in police custody since his actions against his son was reported to the police. This plea was objected to by the Prosecutor, Inspector Regina Oparebea Amoako, who stated that the suspect would be a threat to the mother and the victim.
The judge granted him bail and refused to remand him in custody due to the Coronavirus pandemic. His trial will commence on May 21s
