Defilement Case IGP comes to rescue of defiled 4-year-old

The mother of the victim, Monica Nyarko said a chief in the area has refused to seek justice for her, as the chief argued that the community gods say the suspect is innocent.

  • Published:

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) David Asante-Apeatu has directed the Central Regional Police Command to take over the defilement case involving a four-year-old girl at Assin Adadientem in the Central region.

This follows public complaints that the police has neglected the case.

The mother of the victim, Monica Nyarko said a chief in the area has refused to seek justice for her, as the chief argued that the community gods say the suspect is innocent.

Ms Nyarko said that her daughter is in pain and this is really affecting her health.

Narrating what happened, Madam Nyarko said the incident occurred after she had traveled for a funeral.

She said she later realised what had happened to her daughter when she was bathing her upon her return, but the girl was not willing to as she was in severe pain.

The 4-year-old later told her mother that one Kwabena had inserted his manhood in her in a toilet facility, and had warned her not to speak about it else she would be killed.

Many have since condemned the act and have demanded justice for the little girl.

The IGP in his response has directed the regional police command to investigate the case as well as “focus on how to save the child.”

A statement signed by the director of public affairs of the Ghana Police Service Sheilla Abayie-Buckman said the investigation will also find out whether “police procedures were duly followed and generally ensuring that justice is done.”

“A Police Clinical Psychologist who is attached to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit at Accra has also been assigned to assist the process.”

“The Police Administration therefore assures the public that any person who is found culpable of wrongdoing, including Police officers would be dealt with according to law,” the statement said.
