Another Suspect Arrested In Connection to the Ghana Gang Rape Incident


The police in Ghana has arraigned another suspect linked to the alleged gang rape of a young lady captured in a video that has gone viral, bringing the total number of suspects charged to court to four.

The suspect, believed to be hiding in Accra turned himself in Wednesday afternoon.

His arrest comes as three other suspects arrested in connection with the alleged rape are remanded into police custody by the Asokwa District Court to reappear on December 27, 2017.

It was reported earlier that out of the seven school boys who subjected the teenage girl to a painful sexual ordeal, three had been arrested and locked up in the Ashanti Regional Police station.

Two of the boys are in senior high school (SHS) 1, while the other boy is in junior high school (JHS) 3.

The three suspects were picked from their various homes at Bantama on Saturday, December 16.

The police are also making frantic efforts to arrest the four other suspects – who are all students.

This was contained in a release, issued and signed by ASP Juliana Obeng, the Ashanti Regional Police spokeswoman.

She said a medical form had been issued to the victim to receive treatment, adding that the teenage girl had been assisting in investigations.
