Sisters Raped In Police Custody


Two teenage sisters were allegedly defiled at the Vakpo Police Station, according to a report to the Kpando branch of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

A policeman, identified as Samson Asare, then on duty, allegedly looked the other way while the girls were being raped, father of the sisters had told CHRAJ.

The sisters, who were then in Police cells over a scuffle with another woman, were detained for three days in the cells after they were defiled.

Kenneth Asamoah, father of the children, said his daughters reported the incident to their mother who had come to visit them.

He in turn reported the matter to the Kpando District Police Commander, who gave a hospital form to the children to be examined at the hospital.

The report of the doctor indicated that the children were defiled.

Mr Asamoah said in his report that on the night of the incident while his daughters were in the cell, two men called at the police station and asked the sisters to follow them to another room, where a police uniform was hanging on a wall.

He said his daughters were given a mattress to sleep on, and whilst sleeping, the two men came to lie by them.

“In the thick of the night, the two men jumped on the children, tore their dresses and had sex with them,” Mr. Asamoah’s report indicated.

He alleged that “though the children shouted the name of Asare, he refused to assist. The two men after defiling the children sent them back to the cells”.

Mr Asamoah alleged that when he drew the attention of Inspector Agbenyegah, officer in charge of the Vakpo Police Station to the incident, he retorted that “the children were disrespectful so anything can happen”.

When contacted Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Joseph Ellis Agbevade, the Kpando District Crime Officer, confirmed the incident and identified the two men involved as friends of Sampson Asare.

He said the two men have been arraigned before court.

Joseph Nuertey, Assistant Legal Officer at the Volta Regional Office of CHRAJ said the Commission was doing its best to ensure that the two girls were compensated by the police for their negligence.
