The four-year-old girl who was defiled at Assin Adadientem in the Central Region has been relocated with her family.
The move, according to the Member of Parliament for Assin South Constituency, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour is to ensure their security.
Outrage has left state agencies scurrying all over the place to find justice for the girl after a Joy News report.
The victim was allegedly defiled on October 13, 2017 by an 18-year-old man she identified as Kwabena, and has been left struggling for her life. She cannot stand nor walk as a result of the pain.
The village chief to whom the victim’s mother reported the matter, dismissed the woman ruling that the village gods had declared the suspect innocent.
Police are now combing the entire village to smoke the suspect from his hideout two weeks after they delayed in taking action when the victim’s father reported the incident to them.
The Inspector General of Police has directed the Central Regional Police Command to take over the case and ensure justice is served for the girl, while disciplinary action should be taken against the officers for their unprofessional conduct when the case was reported.
The police on Friday invited the chief of the village, Nana Aboboyaa otherwise known as John Mensah, who is also a cousin to the teenage suspect to assist in the investigations.
However, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour who paid a visit to the 4 year old victim and her parents at their new home on Saturday promised them his support.
He said all debt and expenses have been taken care of, all in the bid to ensure a sound mind for the family.
“We have been very worried when the issue came up but since the victim and her parents are still staying at the suspect’s house, it will be prudent that they’re moved from the house to ensure their security as the police have taken over the issue” he told Adom News’ Alfred Amoh.
The MP also promised to foot the medical bills of the victim as investigation into the matter continues.
Rev Fordjour also disclosed that the family will get monthly stipends to allow it settle properly in the new place.
