Student arrested for raping teacher-trainee

The Agona Swedru Division of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service, has arrested a 17-year–old form one student of the Nsaba Presbyterian Senior High School (SHS) for raping a 20-year-old teacher-trainee at Agona Asafo.

Chief Superintendent Peter Abillah, Agona Swedru Divisional Crime Officer, who disclosed this to the Press at Swedru, said the student, Henry Nyakoh, went to the house of the victim at Agona Asafo at about 13 hours on Tuesday, May 17, to look for her junior sister of the victim.

According to the Crime Officer, Nyakoh did not see the girl but met the victim, who is a student of the College of Education.

Chief Superintendent Abilah said Nyakoh pounced on the teacher-trainee and started removing her pants.

The Crime Officer said Nyakoh destroyed the pants of the student and finally had sexual intercourse with her, despite her plea that she was in her menstrual period.

The Crime Officer said the victim reported the matter to the DOVVSU at Agona Swedru and Nyakoh was arrested while in school.
