A female Ghanaian prisoner, who escaped from a police custody in Nkafoa police cell, has finally reveals how the police officer sexually harassed her four times, before releasing her from the custody.
27-year-old Theresa White (not the real name) confessed after her second arrest in her parent's home in town.
According to police reports, the suspect had earlier been convicted in a theft case and was in police custody at Nkanfoa Police Station awaiting to be arraigned in court after investigation.
Ghanian Police commander, while presenting a case against the suspect, disclosed that the policeman was the station officer at the Nkanfoa Police near the town.
The allegations came to light after the prisoner told her lawyer that she had been sexually harassed by a policeman, identified only by the initials RO.
“The sexual abuse occurred four times. Twice on the morning of November and then on Dec. 2,” the woman’s lawyer said.
The lawyer further said that the first incident occurred in the Police’s visitation room at around 10:00 a.m. on Nov. 14, when the prisoner was sweeping the room. RO entered the room and asked her to have love with him.
“According to the victim, RO asked her to have sex four times, but she ignored him,” the lawyer said, adding that the incident scared her and left her unable to sleep.
