Suspect in gang rape apprehended with accomplices at large


Zakari Faisal, a second cycle student, who allegedly sedated a teenage girl, aged 16, leading to he and three others gang raping her overnight, is in the grip of the Police at Aflao.

The police are close on the heels of his accomplices, including one Asdat and two others who are still at large.

A source close to the Aflao Police told the Ghana News Agency that about 1500 hours on Saturday, the victim, also a student and resident at Agbozume, attended a fun fair program at Some Senior High School at Agbozume, where she met the suspect, who is a resident of Aflao.

The source said the accused after a brief conversation with the victim, who was attending such meeting for the first time, offered to give her some beverage.

He then took the unsuspecting victim to a drinking spot and bought her a bottle of soft Alvaro beverage which he was suspected to have secretly laced it with a sedative.

The victim shortly after taking the drink began feeling dizzy and sleepy and complained to the suspect, who convinced her it would be over soon, only to wake up about midnight on a bed in the suspect’s room at Aflao.

According to the source, the accused again gave the victim some food and an alcoholic beverage after she had complained of her drowsy condition and the strange placing, convincing her that the alcohol will reinvigorate her, but that rather worsened her condition.

The source said while the victim laid awake, but very weak, she saw the accused and one Asdat and the two others now at large, come and go, having sexual intercourse with her in turns.

The victim after a while threatened the accused she would report to police, and sensing danger, he gave her GHC35 to seal it all, but the victim called a friend, who incidentally knew the accused and came to her rescue.

According to the source victim called her father at Agbozume, who rushed to Aflao and with the help of others, Faisal was picked and victim made to go for treatment and examination at the Ketu South Hospital at Aflao.

The source said Faisal is being provisionally charged with conspiracy and rape.
