The Ejisu-Juaben Police Command has forwarded a case docket to the Attorney General’s Department to advise whether to prosecute a chief who allegedly conned a 17 -year old girl to have sex with her under the pretext of giving her money.

Nana Baah Acheamfour, the Nkwantananhene of the Juaben Traditional Area, allegedly promised the girl some money to have sex with her but after the act the chief declined to honour his promise.

Briefing the The Spectator, the Ejisu-Juaben Police commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Stephen Awuah-Baffour, said the police had preferred a charge of rape against the chief but the advice as to prosecute would be decided by the Attorney General’s Department.

According to the police commander, the chief, on February 12, this year met the girl who was on her way to sell oranges, in the market and offered her a lift in his car.

It was at that juncture that the chief allegedly negotiated with the girl.

However, a week after the game the chief was alleged to have been “tossing” the girl who became offended and informed her father who reported the case to the police.

Nana Acheamfour, the police commander said, was invited to give his statement and later he was granted bail. It was, however, quite interesting when this paper contacted the chief. He told this paper that he did not have sex with the girl.

He said after he gave the lift to the girl he was resting in his hall when she came there and sat on his lap.

Asked whether there was nobody in the house the chief said his sisters were in the main yard of the house but they did not see that. He denied any sexual encounter with the girl.

The Ashanti Regional Department of the Attorney General was contacted but the State Attorney, Mr William Kpobi, said the department was yet to receive the case docket.
