A 17-year-old final year student has allegedly been gang raped by five young men at Nerebehi in the Ashanti Region. The victim has been referred from the Afari Community Hospital in the Atwima Nwabiagya District to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
This is to enable doctors at the hospital treat and conduct further checks on the victim.
The teenager, who is preparing to sit for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination [BECE], has already missed some papers in the District Mock exams, conducted by the Ghana Education Service.
Meanwhile, three suspects who were earlier remanded by the Akropong Magistrate Court are expected to re-appear on April 18, 2018.
The victim complained of abdominal and vaginal pains as well as a severe headache after she was overpowered by the five young boys and sexually assaulted.
“I feel pains in my abdomen and my vagina. I have severe headaches too and I feel so weak since the incident happened. I want the Police to deal with the perpetrators because they have really hurt me. Even the District Mock exams that are mandatory for candidates preparing for the BECE across the country, I have not been able to write because of what they have done to me,” she said.
The victim wants the police to bring the perpetrators to book.
Mother of the victim, (Name withheld), wants the suspects prosecuted after the parents of the suspects had the guts to attack them for reporting the matter to the police.
