A female Ghanaian prisoner who escaped from a police cell in Nkafoa, Central Region, has narrated how a police officer helped her after giving him four rounds of sex.
27-year-old Theresa Forson confessed after her rearrest. She had earlier been convicted in a theft case and was in police custody at Nkanfoa Police Station awaiting sentencing.
According to her, 36-year-old Lance Corporal Isaac Apomah released her after she gave in to his demand for sex.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Daniel Mensah, while presenting a case against Apomah who made his first appearance before a court on Monday September 27, disclosed that the policeman was the station officer at the Nkanfoa Police Station on September 25, 2021.
He said around midnight, L/Cpl Apomah brought four sachets of ‘Abe Nsuo’ also called “One Show”, to the station and gave the plaintiff, who was at the time, a prisoner on remand at the station, two sachets to drink which she drank.
Around 3am, L/Cpl Apomah while having a conversation with Miss Forson, told her that the detective handling her case was troublesome and that he could let her go scot-free if she would allow him sleep with her.
Miss Forson reportedly agreed to the deal and had sexual intercourse with L/Cpl Apomah, after which he opened up the cells for her to have her bath.
ASP Mensah said; “Apomah then gathered Ms Forson’s items, which were being kept in police custody, including a mobile phone, and put them at the entrance of the police station and signaled her to run away.”
Upon reaching her family house, Forson went to her father-in-law and narrated what transpired. He then took her back to Bakaano Police Station where the incident was reported.
Theresa was rearrested and handed over to the Kotokuraba Police for investigations. Apomahwas charged with rape and aiding the escape of a convict.
He is to appear before the court on October 12, 2021.
