The Central Regional Police Commander has been directed to take over investigations into the case in which a four-year-old girl was defiled at Assin Adadientem in the Assin Fosu District.
The probe will focus on “how to save a child” and “whether police procedures were duly followed,” a statement by the Police Public Affairs Directorate said.
The Police Clinical Psychologist at the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit in Accra has also been assigned to assist with the process.
There is public outrage over the defilement of a four-year-old girl by a 17-year-old boy at Assin Adedientem.
The girl reportedly bled profusely for days before the parents were informed about the incident.
Gender activists and civil society groups have been demanding justice for the girl.
Social media has been awash with the hashtag #NoMoreSilence, with repeated calls on the Police Administration to prioritise the case.
Meanwhile, the Central Regional Police Commander has summoned Assin Fosu Divisional Police head, Chief Superintendent Henry Bacho over the matter.
COP Reverend David Nenyi Ampah-Bennin is expected to quiz the Divisional Police head about the non-arrest of the suspect behind the incident.
The two police heads have been in a meeting since Thursday morning, Joy News Central Regional Correspondent, Richard Kwadwo Nyarko has reported.
