We’re probing J.B. widow’s sexual assault claim – IGP

by;brightwebtv.com/bright agyapong

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr David Asante-Apeatu, has revealed that the police hierarchy has set up a committee to probe allegations of sexual harassment made by the wife of the late Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, J.B. Danquah-Adu, against a top official of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).


Ivy Heward-Mills said an officer of the CID of the Ghana Police Service subjected her to sexually suggestive questioning while probing the death of her husband.

“…I have been summoned to the Police HQ on countless occasions and subjected to what I would casually describe as ‘the act of scrubbing a fresh wound with Himalayan rock salt’ and topped up with a million and one questions including, to my shock, a very gleeful ‘so madam do you wear waist beads?’ in a meeting room populated by a men-only CID team who perhaps thought it was their birthright to get familiar with what’s in every woman’s underwear!

“And if you think that’s inappropriate, try that Sunday morning when one of those men; a man at the helm of investigating my husband’s murder, thought it sensible to muster the sheer unadorned temerity, call me and tell me how beautiful/sexy he thinks I am and give me reasons why I must marry him; an already married man. Yes, he had the audacity… and this was the head of a certain significant unit at the CID… and I’m supposed to trust that they did a great job? May God forgive him,” She wrote in a Facebook Post.

Responding to the development at a press conference in Accra on Thursday, 14 February 2019, the IGP noted that investigations have begun to establish the facts of the matter.

Mr Asante-Apeatu added that the widow has been invited to the committee and a date will be scheduled for her to meet the committee tasked to probe the incident.
