Father Slashes Daughter's Fingers For Talking To A Gentleman

A 23-year-old woman allegedly had her fingers slashed by her father on Monday for talking to a gentleman in Sanso, a suburb of Obuasi in the Ashanti region. Safia Alidu said the gentleman, who she had never known, beckoned her to come for a chat and just as they stood to talk, her father, whose name she gave as Halidu, met them, went into the house and came back with a knife. Safia, who has refused to seek medical attention, in an interview with XYZ News said her father mercilessly slashed her three fingers to the amazement of both she and the gentleman. “Last night I was going to auntie’s place when a gentleman I don’t even know called me to talk to me. My father later called me and asked me where I was and I told him I was standing by the tap. “He later came out from the house with a knife in his hand and started to slash me with it”.
