Father burns 8-year-old with iron over poor performance

The class one pupil of Trinity Presbyterian Primary School in the New Juaben Municipality in the Eastern region was burnt with a hot iron by her father.


An eight-year-old girl's hand has been burnt by her father over her poor performance in an exam.

The father, known only as Akorozo, was angered by her daughter’s poor showing in a mock exam and subjected her to severe beatings before burning her back with a hot iron.

Starr FM’s Eastern regional correspondent Kojo Ansah reported that her father threatened her not to disclose her injuries to anybody.

According to Kojo Ansah, Akorozo then compelled her daughter to wear a cardigan to cover her injuries but unable to bear the pains she removed her clothes which exposed her injuries to teachers of the school

Meanwhile, a teacher of the girl has revealed that Akorozo has failed to purchase the necessary books required by her daughter to study.
