The Central Regional Police Command has launched a hunting operation on Kwasi Dawood, the Central Regional Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Kwasi Dawood is being hunted for accusations of rape, sexual assault, abortion, and molesting his biological daughter, the name of whom we have omitted.
Sources within the C/R Police Command say that Mr Dawood’s daughter has reported him for having sex with her multiple times, leading to a pregnancy.
After becoming aware of his daughter’s pregnancy, Mr Dawood allegedly called a quack doctor named Dr Arthur Mensah to perform an abortion.
Police currently say the suspect is on the run, but an accomplice in the abortion accusation is in custody and helping with the investigation.
Mother’s petition to Regional Police Command
The Central Regional Police Command received a petition from the victim’s mother, Mavis Ayitey, alleging the suspect has been engaged in the act since she was 15 years old.
“The father, Mr Kwesi Dawood, has been forcibly having sexual affair with the daughter since at the age of 15 years (Incest) and even had an abortion with her and warned her not to inform anyone else he will make her life miserable,” the petition read in part.
As described in the same petition, the victim, who was no longer able to bear the pain of her father’s actions, confided in the Housemaster of her school on August 24th, 2021.
The suspect admitted to the offence after confronting the Housemaster over the phone.
The school official then invited the girl’s grandmother with whom the girl stayed at Sweduru, to the school and informed her about the victim’s ordeal.
