‘I was raped by police officer’ – Victims recounts family accepting GH¢800 compensation


July. 31, 2020

Hannah Mawusi  Fiamevor was 16-years-old when a police officer raped her.
Now 25-years-old, Mawusi has decided to educate young girls by telling her story.
The fashion designer narrating her story on TV3 monitored by theghanareport.com , said “I was a virgin”
Mawusi had taken up petty trading to support her family while in Senior High School form one.
“I had to support the family because things were difficult at home, so one day I was sacked for school fees but my mother asked me to stay home until the money is raised, so I decided to take up laundry business after a mechanic in our area introduced me to his police officer friend”
“One day the police officer invited me to come and wash his things, but when I got there, I realized the clothes had already been washed. So, I decided to leave and immediately he locked up the door”
“This happened at a police barracks in Tema Community 2…I was stuck in the room with the policeman. He physically assaulted me, and threatened to kill me if I don’t succumb to his demand, though I was petite I fought back,” she said.
After hours of struggling with the law enforcement officer, Mawusi’s strength grew weak, she gave in.
“He threw me into the sofa and hit my head against the wall and that was when I grew weak…. he was thick tall and I couldn’t wrestle him anymore”
Helpless Mawusi said she cried for help but no help came.
“I shouted for help. I cried. But nobody heard me. It seems he had studied the area very well and knew that at that time, there will be no one around…nobody heard me”
” He knelt in front of me on the sofa and shifted my pant…..he had his way with me,” the traumatized victim narrated.
The police officer after having his way with the 16-year-old offered to pay GHC800 to compensate her family.
“He took my virginity and offered my family GHC800 as compensation”
She didn’t say if her family collected the money but Mawusi never received medical attention, even though she was visibly wounded from the act.
