A 43-year-old man is currently on the run after sexually abusing five girls at Okaikrom in the Ashanti Region.
Frank Boadi who returned from France three years ago owns a hotel in Okaikrom and is alleged to have defiled and raped girls in the community including a 12-year-old girl.
Confirming the news to GhanaWeb, the Assembly Member for the area Micheal Aniagyei said parents of the victims are afraid to report to the police because Frank Boadi is allegedly having an affair with the DCE of the Sekyere East who is also the District Security Council (DISEC) Chairperson, therefore anytime the case is reported to the police, it becomes a “foolish case”.
He said a recent incident that drew the attention of the community was a case of a 17-year-old Senior High School student who was reported missing by her parents.
Micheal Aniagyei said during their search, the SHS 2 student was found in the hotel room of Frank Boadi.
This was reported to the police and a medical report was requested.
He narrated that when the results came, it turned out that the girl, whose name has been withheld, was 7 weeks pregnant for Frank Boadi.
He said before the family of the victim could report the case to the police. Frank Boadi had taken the lead to report the issue claiming he was abused by the parents of the victim.
Upon his report, the police arrested the mother of the victim while the father escaped into the bush. She as later granted bail.
Michael Aniagyei, however, said after speaking to some media houses, the police who became worried about the news went to the hotel to pick him up but met his absence as he claimed he was meeting his lawyer in Kumasi and has since not returned.
