The District Commander for Gomoa Dominase in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region, ASP Paul Ankam, has promised to crack the whip on individuals who defile and impregnate minors in his jurisdiction.
The police bemoaned the increasing rate of teenage pregnancy in the area and attributed it to sexual abuses; a situation he indicated if not curtailed will jeopardize the future of young girls.
He made the remarks in an interview with Rainbow Radio’s Nana Yaw Asare at a public forum organized by the district police command for residents in the various communities under the district.
According to the commander, sexual violators should not be entertained in the society but be punished by available legal frameworks to serve as deterrent to others.
He said, it has become a norm for residents to laugh at others on the premise that they have not been able to put to birth at an early age and so ‘’it has become a status quo for young girls to be impregnated although it violates their fundamental human rights.
He was of the view that, young girls should be given the opportunity to have access to quality education to highest level.
However, girls in this community are abused by men and get pregnant below 18 years. This is defilement and such men must be punished as law establish.
Girls in the area he lamented are unable to claim the academic ladder to the tertiary level and only get the chance to complete junior high school.
‘’We have to punish men who sexually abuse minors. That is why DOVSU was established. Some of the men do not also accept responsibility for their unlawful act and this sometimes have serious negative impact on the young girls.’’
On his part, the Omanhene of Gomoa Akyampim Traditional Area, Obrifo Ahunu Ahor Ankobea II, charged Ghanaians to stop attacking and intimidating the police in other not to discourage them from carrying out their lawful duty in protecting lives and property.
Parents on their part supported the District Commander for the bold decision he has taken to ensure that culprits who sexually abuse minors are dealt with.
The parents used the opportunity to advise their wards to take their studies serious in order for them to achieve success.
