A police officer has landed in trouble for allegedly raping a 15-year-old Junior High School (JHS) student.
Lance Corporal Paul Addo, who answered a request to discipline the girl, has been accused by her family of raping the JHS1 student during the “disciplinary” session.
The Lance Corporal, who is stationed at Agavedzi in the Ketu South District, is said to have been approached by the mother and older brother of the victim with a request to discipline the girl for an as yet undisclosed offence.
Instead, they claim, he raped the minor.
The officer has apparently denied the claims made against him.
Ketu South Municipal Police Commander, Superintendent Augustine Luguyare declined to comment on the case, except to tell JoyNews that investigations are still ongoing and that the matter has been forwarded to the Attorney General for advice.
The family of the young girl has however expressed surprise that the officer is still at post and not behind bars.
They have therefore appealed to Aflao police to arrest the alleged rapist and bring him to book.
