Speaking with the student, she narrated that she accepted to have the intercourse with Lance Corporal Emmanuel Allode after several threat by the police officer on her life.
“he proposed to me and told me he loves me. I refused initially but he threatened I will not have any other man to love if I deny him and insulted me as well so I agreed out of fear. I have been in his house for six times and he has had sexual intercourse on two different occasions in his house and another at a hotel in Bogoso, I came back to school in Takoradi and realized I was pregnant so I called him and he told me he has a medicine which will help abort the pregnancy. He came from Bogoso with the medicine and we met at the house of my friend’s boyfriend, he took me to a hotel and gave me the medicine, the first one failed to abort the pregnancy and he told me to keep the rest and take it later, I took it after some days and I collapsed which ended me in a hospital,” she narrated.
Lance Corporal Emmanuel Allode is currently at the headquarters of the Ghana police service in Sekondi for interrogations. Mother of the student however fear justice might not be served.
