AdomOnline has reported that a dad who was caught on film abusing his three-year-old kid has been arrested.

Richard Kofi, the culprit, was apprehended on October 5th, 2022 in the Oti Region town of Jasikan.

In the video, a guy claiming to be the boy’s father knocks him off his feet with what seems like a branch from a bush and then begins a horrible assault while the kid screams out in terror.

The culprit lifts the youngster up and continues to beat him despite his cries for help. At least 21 times can be seen him spanking the kid in the video.

He was taken in a Toyota vehicle to the palace of the chief, where he was informed of his claimed offence.

The suspect’s wife, who apparently maintains a separate household from her husband, was also detained.

The child was also removed from the residence and given to the custody of the police.

In a statement released the previous day, police offered a reward of GH2,000 for information leading to his apprehension.

While being transported out of the area, the suspect said he had committed no wrongdoing.

People who phoned the police on him reported hearing him swear and make threats.

The Ghana Police Service had appealed to the public to help arrest the man.
