Don’t Take Your Bath Before Reporting Rape Cases – Ghana Police Advises

Published

on


The Ghana Police Service has advised victims of sexual violence to report straight to the police station without taking their bath in order not to alter evidence that might be helpful in the prosecution of the case.

There is currently an outrage across the world following the death of 19-year old activist, Oluwatoyin Salau whose body was found on June 15, in Tallahassee, Florida after being declared missing for a week.

This situation has caused many girls, especially, on twitter to voice out their horrifying sexual assault experiences and exposing men who have attempted rape on them.

Records from the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service (DOVVSU) show that the country gets an average of 15,000 domestic violence cases, 1000 cases of defilement and 300 rape cases in the last decade.

The Ghana Police Service in its duty to protect citizens from every form of harassment have advised on how to help law enforcers bring rapists to book.

Speaking to Pulse Ghana, Deputy Superintendent of Police and Head – Public Affairs Unit/Accra Region, Effia Tenge said, “rape needs to be reported immediately the incident happens. One thing is that people do not want to keep the ‘nasty thing’ on them. So, it needs to be reported for the doctor to examine you so you can go and have your bath and freshen up from that unfortunate incident.”

“Once you come, we give you what we call a medical form. Then you are made to go to the nearest public hospital for a doctor to examine you and give you a report which you have to bring back,” she added.

“You don’t need to take your bath after a rape incident. It is very important in gathering evidence for prosecution.

Also, bring anything that will be necessary for our investigation. Things that came about in the cause of the struggle or the cause of sexual activity. The police will add them to our investigation,” she advised.

It Is Everyone’s Responsibility to Stay Safe, You Have to Live Before You Can Vote – EC

Published

on


The Electoral Commission (EC) has bemoaned the disregard of Covid-19 protocols by Ghanaians who are registering for the new voters’ card.

The Director General of Services at the EC, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe charged Ghanaians to take precaution and adhere to the social distancing protocols as it is everyone’s responsibility to stay safe.

Speaking on the Happy Morning show, Mr Quaicoe said, “you have to live before you can vote. Observe the social distancing protocol because COVID-19 is real. Know that if you contract the sickness you will pose a danger to yourself and others so you need to observe the social distancing.”

He noted that it is not about having lots of policemen on the ground to enforce the law, rather it is everyone’s responsibilty to stay safe.

“Everyone registering is 18 years and above so people should be responsible. They must know that if they don’t follow protocols they will be putting themselves in danger. No matter what the security persons do, it depends on the individual. But we have informed our people that anyone without nose mask must not be registered”, he stressed.

He called on Ghanaians to remain patient as they’ll ensure they move to every polling station to register everyone.
