A gentleman in Ghana simply identified as Godfred from Dansoman has recounted an emotional experience he had with his wife after the birth of 'his daughter'.
Calling into a program on Joy 99.7 FM, Godfred said when the woman was pregnant, he made a lot of sacrifices to be there for both her and the unborn baby.
"I took her [my wife] to the labour ward, she even delivered into my hands, I named the child and everything," he narrated on the show.
However, 15 years after making so many sacrifices, Godfred's wife came to confess that the child was never for and since then, she has blocked all means of communication between Godfred.
