Theresa Forson, a female Ghanaian prisoner who was rearrested after escaping from a police cell, has narrated how a police officer aided her escape after giving him four rounds of sex.
The 27-year-old, who had earlier been convicted in a theft case while in police custody at Nkanfoa police station and was awaiting sentencing, said 36-year-old Lance Corporal Isaac Apomah released her after she gave in to his demand for sex.
Presenting a case against Apomah who made his first appearance before a court on September 27, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Daniel Mensah, disclosed that the police officer was the station officer on September 25.
He said around midnight, Apomah brought four sachets of ‘Abe Nsuo’ also called “One Show”, to the station and gave the plaintiff, who was at the time a prisoner on remand at the station, two sachets to drink, which she did.
Mensah stated that around 3:00am, the officer, in a conversation with Forson, said the detective handling her case was troublesome and that he could let her go scot-free if she would allow him to have sex with her.
The prison reportedly agreed to the deal and had sexual intercourse with Apomah, after which he opened up the cells for her to have her bath.
“Apomah then gathered Ms Forson’s items, which were being kept in police custody, including a mobile phone, and put them at the entrance of the police station and signalled her to run away,” Mensah said.
It was gathered that upon arriving her family house, Forson went to her father-in-law and narrated what had transpired.
The man then took her back to Bakaano police station where the incident was reported.
She was rearrested and handed over to the Kotokuraba police for investigations.
Apomah, who is to appear before the court again on October 12, has been charged with rape and aiding the escape of a convict.
