Source: Daily Guide Ghana - Information reaching Daily Guide at press time on Monday indicated that a Lance Corporal whose name was given simply as James, stationed at the Abirim District Police Station in the Eastern Region, had allegedly assaulted and stripped naked one Mame Yaa Foriwah, 33, and handcuffed her.
The police officer allegedly stormed the village, Praso-Kumah, near Abirim where Yaa Foriwah lives, to cause her arrest following a complaint lodged against her by her boyfriend,
Wofa Atta, who claimed she had kept his personal effects in her custody and refused to give them out.
According to eyewitnesses, the police officer assaulted the victim before handcuffing her. That was when the lady had purportedly asked him to go and that she would later come to the station to settle the matter with her boyfriend.
Lancer Corporal James, who was reportedly in an angry mood, was said to have pushed the lady onto the ground and pulled her clothes while forcibly dragging her into a taxi and sent to the Abirim station where she was placed behind bars.
Yaa Foriwah’s nephew, Charles Amponsah, who is the National Democratic Congress (NDC) secretary in the Abirim constituency, narrating the ordeal to Daily Guide, posited that Wofa Atta in the past eight years, came to seek the hand of Foriwah in marriage.
He stated that the items for the engagement which Wofa Atta purchased were kept by Yaa Foriwah.
According to him, last Friday, the man came to Yaa and told her that he was no longer interested in her but gave no reasons, and said he was coming for the items because he wanted to marry another woman.
The NDC constituency scribe hinted that Foriwah was not happy about the turn of events and so refused to release the items, which infuriated Atta, impelling him to lodge the complaint.
The matter was put before the Abirim District Dommander, DSP Yirenkyi, who later in the day granted the woman bail and gave her medical form to attend hospital for treatment.
When contacted by Daily Guide, DSP Yirenkyi said he had asked the victim’s family to come to the station on Tuesday for a settlement.
