Father Vows To Kill Son Over Religious Disagreement Modern Ghana (hat tip Jim)

'I will rather kill him and face the firing squad (death sentence), than live to see my son not worshipping Allah.'
A disagreement between a couple at Morso in the Asante Akim District of the Ashanti Region, over which religion their son should belong to, has sparked trouble and imperiled the life of the youngman, with the enraged Muslim father threatening to kill the son if he continues to be a Christian.
DAILY GUIDE gathered that the man, Kwasi Amoah, converted to Islam when the son, Justice, was but a toddler; and the former subsequently took up the name Issah.
The marriage between the Muslim man and Lydia Dufie, his Christian wife, was advisedly dissolved long ago, with Mr Amoah on the heels of the young fellow whom he threatened to eliminate if he does not take up Islam also.
Given the persistence of his father to carry out the threat, the youngman has taken cover in a yet-to-be identified location with the knowledge of his acquiescing mother, DAILY GUIDE sources revealed.
Though the Police have cautioned him to desist from the unlawful act, the father does not appear anywhere near abandoning his threat.
Issah, as Kwasi Amoah is now known, was arrested and detained a few months ago for attempting to stab the son whom he accused of adopting the religion of his mother.
The collapse of the marriage between the couple is a statement on the difficulties involved in a cross-religious matrimony since determining the faith of the offspring of such a union is always fraught with challenges.
