Girl gang raped by five men, contemplates suicide
A 14-year old Ghanaian girl who was defiled by five men at Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region, says she has been contemplating suicide for some time now, myjoyonline reports.
The traumatised girl dropped out of school at Class 4, after her ordeal, and says she is being haunted by the dastardly incident which has left her with life-threatening complications.
Her revelations come as the Nkawkaw police arrest a third suspect, Awudu Kamiru, an 18-year-old head porter. The victim was strangled by her attackers in an attempt to murder her after having sexual intercourse with her in turns.
The attackers confessed that the plan was to conceal their illegal act and avoid a possible arrest. But a Good Samaritan who found her in an unconscious state in the Trado stream, saved her life.
That act has since left her with walking difficulties whilst she bleeds profusely from her private parts. Police have so far arrested 3 suspects in connection with the act.
25-year-old cobbler and ex-convict Yaw Preko and a driver’s mate, Mohammed Adamu, were the first two to be arrested and arraigned before an Nkawkaw Magistrates Court.
Efforts are underway to arrest two more suspects who are at large. Apart from the trauma, the girl says some residents in her neighbourhood have been making fun of her, while revealing that she has been contemplating suicide.
