Defilement

The Domestic Violence and Victims’ Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service in the Northern Region, has arrested a 51-year-old man, Mohammed Hamza, for allegedly defiling her daughter.

The Regional DOVVSU coordinator, DSP Emmanuel Horlotu, who confirmed the incident, said the victim is a 14-year-old.

According to him, the suspect threatened his victim several times and each time had sex with her.

All attempts to open up on her ordeal with family members were shot down by them with the defence that the suspect could do no such thing.

DSP Holortu revealed that they have the full cooperation of the victim to prosecute the case for justice to be served.
