The Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu has hinted the Police administration has set up a team to investigate the alleged sexual harassment that has hit the police service and pronounced by wife of late JB Danquah, Ivy Heward-Mills.
The IGP announced this at a press conference organised by the police on the state of security in the country.
Ivy Heward-Mills in a Facebook post commemorating the 3rd anniversary of the late husband among other things accused the investigator investigating the matter of sexually harassing her.
“I have been summoned to the Police HQ on countless occasions and subjected to what I would casually describe as “the act of scrubbing a fresh wound with Himalayan rock salt” and topped up with a million and one questions including, to my shock, a very gleeful “so madam do you wear waist beads?” in a meeting room populated by a men only CID team who perhaps thought it was their birthright to get familiar with what’s in every woman’s underwear!”
“And if you think that’s inappropriate, try that Sunday morning when one of those men; a man at the helm of investigating my husband’s murder, thought it sensible to muster the sheer unadorned temerity, call me and tell me how beautiful / sexy he thinks I am and give me reasons why I must marry him; an already married man. Yes, he 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? May God forgive him,” she stated in a Facebook post.
Reacting to the allegation, the IGP said: “We have set up an investigative committee to investigate that. She has already been spoken to by one of our commissioners. We’ve invited her and she has given us a time…. so it is an ongoing investigation,” he said.
