It took Mama Kpataku the strength of a horse to prevent her 55-year-old father-in-law from raping her on last Sunday, June 8.
Madam Kpataku, a three-month old pregnant woman had to squeeze the genitals of her father-in-law, Theophilus Yao Danyo, a farmer, to free herself from his grips after struggling with him in bed.
The incident happened at Akotoshie No 1 near Adjen Kotoku in the Ga West municipality, in the Greater Accra Region, when Danyo asked Mama Kpataku to pick an item for him from his room.
Narrating her ordeal to The Spectator last Sunday in an exclusive interview, Mama Kpataku said even though she respected her father-in-law very well, she was always cautious about him because he attempted to rape her by a river side three years ago when they went to the farm.
She said after struggling with him in the room, the shout for help from Danyo attracted sympathizers who broke into the room to rescue her but Danyo managed to escape naked.
Mama Kpataku said she reported the incident to her husband, John Danyo, 36, after he returned from work.
She also lodged a complaint with the Dom-Sampaman Police Station on Monday, June 9, 2014.
John Danyo also told The Spectator that, “he believes his father is possessed by evil spirits.”
According to him when he confronted his father later in the evening, about his cruel behavior, his father attempted to slash him with a machete, but on-lookers overpowered him and took the machete from him.
John said he had also reported the conduct of his father to the same police station.
The landlord of Akotoshie No 1, Nii Opah, when contacted, also confirmed the story, saying Danyo was noted for raping people’s wives in the bush.
When The Spectator contacted Inspector Eric Sai, Dom-Sampaman Police Station Officer on Sunday, he confirmed the story, and said the police were doing everything possible to arrest Danyo from his hideout.
Inspector Eric Sai who showed the cutlass Yao Danyo attempted to slash his son with, said he would be charged with attempted rape, and attempted murder.
