Ghana: Police Investigate J. B Danquah's Wife Sexual Harassment Allegation

The Police have commenced investigations into the allegations by the wife of the late Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, J.B Danquah, that the investigator in charge of the case was sexually harassing her.

The Director-General of the Police Public Affairs, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) David Senanu Eklu, told the Ghanaian Times that the Police Administration's attention had been drawn to the allegation by Ms Ivy Heward-Mills, which had gone viral on the social media.

He said any body found culpable would be dealt with in accordance with the laid-down regulations of the Police Service.

ACP Eklu said no official report had been made by the wife of the late lawmaker in connection with such allegation.

Ms Heward-Mills was alleged to have posted on social media that the man investigating the case "calls me and tell me how beautiful/sexy he thinks I am and give me reasons why I must marry him, an already married man".

She was reported to have stated that the CID man "had the audacity and this was the head of a certain significant unit at the CID and I'm supposed to trust that they did a great job."

Ms Heward-Mills indicated that she was summoned to the Police Headquarters on countless occasions, and subjected to what she described as "the act of scrubbing a fresh wound with Himalayan rock salt and topped up with a million and one questions including, to my surprise and shock very gleeful, 'So Madam do you wear waist beads?' in a meeting room populated by men only CID team".
