The Central Regional Police Command is on a chase for the region’s Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Kwasi Dawood is wanted for allegedly raping, incestuating, aborting, and assaulting his biological daughter, whose identity has been concealed.
Mr Dawood has been denounced by his daughter for having sex with her several times, leading to a pregnancy, according to adomonline.com sources within the C/R Police Command.
Mr Dawood allegedly sought a quack doctor named Dr Arthur Mensah to conduct an abortion on the victim after discovering he had impregnated his daughter.
The suspect is thought to be on the run at the moment, but his abortion accusation accomplice is in police custody and working with the inquiry.
Mother’s petition to Regional Police Command
The suspect has allegedly been involved in the conduct since the girl was 15, according to a petition filed by the victim’s mother, Mavis Ayitey, to the Central Regional Police Command.
“The father, Mr Kwesi Dawood, has been forcibly having sexual relations with the daughter since she was fifteen years old (Incest) and has even had an abortion for her, warning her not to tell anyone or he will make her life miserable,” according to the petition.
The girl, who could no longer handle the pain of her father’s activities, confided in her school’s Housemaster on August 24, 2021, according to details contained in the same plea.
The Housemaster is said to have confronted the suspect on phone and he admitted to the offence.
The school official then invited the girl’s grandmother, who stayed at Swedru, 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 beat 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
Upon hearing about her child’s ordeal, the girl’s mother 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 that the suspect has been suspended indefinitely, pending a police investigation into the matter.
