After weeks of gruelling pain inflicted on him by his biological father for bedwetting, three-year-old Junior has been discharged from the hospital.
The little boy whose ordeal sparked national outrage underwent treatment at the Manhyia Government Hospital for three weeks for severe wounds.
The abuser, Ebenezer Nana Bonsu, 25, who resides at Buokrom in the Ashanti Region was said to have perpetrated the act using naked wire and canes.
Junior’s other offence according to his father was that he damaged his mobile phone.
The child was saved by his mother who sought help from the Buokrom police before he was admitted at the Manhyia Hospital.
The heartbreaking story evoked public outcry and there was an outpouring of donations to support the three-year-old.
A local not-for-profit organisation Mokasa Women’s Foundation presented ¢1000 cash while Nii Teemo donated diapers to Junior’s mother, Barbara.
Junior now manages at least to limp on one leg, with confidence as he strikes a hearty chat with people around him though the wounds are not completely healed.
Junior’s father who was granted bail last week is yet to meet the bail requirements. He is due back in court on Thursday.
