The Central Regional Police Command is on a manhunt for the Central Regional Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The officer, Kwasi Dawood, is being sought after for alleged rape, incest, abortion, and assault of his biological daughter whose name we have withheld.
Mr Dawood, according to adomonline.com sources within the C/R Police Command, has been reported by his daughter for having sex with her multiple times, leading to a pregnancy.
Upon realising that he had impregnated his daughter, Mr Dawood allegedly contacted a quack doctor by name, Dr Arthur Mensah, to perform an abortion on the victim.
The suspect is said to be currently on the run but his accomplice in the abortion accusation is in police custody, assisting with investigations into the matter.
Mother’s petition to Regional Police Command
According to a petition submitted by the victim’s mother, Mavis Ayitey, to the Central Regional Police Command, the suspect has allegedly been engaged in the act since the girl was 15.
“The father, Mr Kwesi Dawood, has been forcibly having sexual affair with the daughter since at the age of 15 years (Incest) and even had an abortion with her and warned her not to inform anyone else he will make her life miserable,” the petition read in part.
According to details contained in the same petition, the victim who could not bear the pain of the father’s actions anymore, on the 24th of August, 2021 confided in her school’s Housemaster.
The Housemaster is said to have confronted the suspect on the phone who admitted to the offence.
The school official then invited the girl’s grandmother with whom the girl stayed at Sweduru, to the school and informed her about the victim’s ordeal.
Alleged assault case
Not happy with the girl’s confession, on the night of 27th August 2021, after the girl had come home for vacation, the suspect met her by the roadside while he was in a taxi and decided to beat her up.
The suspect is alleged to have ruthlessly beaten up the little girl, kicking her in the abdomen before forcibly pushing her into the taxi he was occupying.
It took the intervention of onlookers around to rescue the small girl.
Police report, medical examination and findings
The girl’s mother, upon hearing about her child’s ordeal then lodged a complaint with the Central Agona Swedru District DOVVSU office on August 31, 2021.
Upon interrogation, the victim was given a medical form to the Swedru Government Hospital for medical examination.
The medical officer’s report, which is currently available to this portal, said among other things that “on vaginal examination, the hymen was broken”.
Suspect on the run
According to the police, the suspect was invited to the offices of DOVVSU through a mobile phone call but he has refused to report.
The case has since been moved from the Swedru Police station to the Central Regional Police Command.
The suspect is currently being sought by the police.
Suspect suspended by NDC
Our sources within the NDC have confirmed to us that the suspect has been suspended indefinitely, pending a police investigation into the matter.
Suspect’s phone dead
