The lady at the centre of the alleged abduction and gang rape in Takoradi has been described by some of her classmates in secondary school as someone noted for concocting stories. They think the public should take her story with a pinch of salt.
Ada, as she called, has been identified as an old student of the Krobo Girls Senior High School at Odumase Krobo in the Eastern region who was known back then as Persis Naana Akosua Appiah Antwi who read General Arts.
She is said to have entered the school in 2005 but was expelled in her final year in 2008 for alleged theft, according to some of her classmates who spoke with Graphiconline.
She responded to the nickname "Arrested Teenager."
According to them, she once faked an asthma attack just to escape punishment while on another occasion, she was said to have attempted pouring an acidic substance into the school’s water source to contaminate it but was caught before she could carry out that act.
Some said she used to run away from school to spend days out of campus and claimed to have been raped at a tender age.
Named by her employers as Ada, the presenter of Takoradi-based YFM, was said to have been abducted last week and sexually assaulted by unknown individuals. She was found Tuesday morning and has since been receiving treatment at the GHAPOHA Hospital in Takoradi.
She had been missing for about five days while her alleged abductors reportedly took pictures of her sexual ordeal and posted same on Facebook. Some of the pictures have also been circulating on Whatsapp.
She is not a Nigerian
Her mates, many of whom had heard about the incident and seen the pictures on social media told Graphiconline that the said victim was not a Nigerian as had been published earlier by some media houses.
There have been discussions in sections of the media pointing to the fact that the whole incident was staged and acted out but the police are yet to come to any such conclusion as they told Graphiconline that investigations were still ongoing.
Investigators and doctors attending to her were able to speak with her on Wednesday but details of what transpired are not yet known.
Suspicions are rife in Takoradi that she may have contracted a syndicate to stage the act.
Meanwhile, the boyfriend of the alleged victim, Rahman Nunoo, speaking to journalists in Takoradi early on Wednesday, said he doubted her claims of abduction and sexual assault.
The victim, according to the police, has gone through this same experience four times previously with the last before the present incident recorded in February 2015.
“On several occasions, she failed to cooperate to unravel the mystery surrounding her claims,” the boyfriend told journalists.
The boyfriend said in all her alleged kidnap and rape cases, the victim gave suspicious accounts of what exactly happened to her and who raped her.
According to Nunoo, while the victim upon her return said she walked from Mankessim to her Tanokrom residence in Takoradi, [a distance that takes approximately two hours by car] the supposed kidnappers sent him [Nunoo] a text message that said they could not find the way to his house and that they had left her naked on the street.
