The wife of the late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North JB Danquh Adu, Ivy Heward-Mills has detailed in a long a Facebook post how police personnel tried to woo her with sexual advances, instead of finding the killers of her husband.
The beautiful woman revealed that in one of her meetings with officers of the CID at the Police Headquarters in Accra; an officer asked her if she wears waist beads, a question that was completely unrelated to the subject of the investigations.
She added that one of the top officers, a married man, who sat in that meeting once called her on the phone and tried to convince her to marry him.
This shocking revelation goes a long way to consolidate the incompetence and highly unprofessional of the so-called policemen we have in the country.
A portion of her text reads;
“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.
The Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North constituency, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu was killed in his home three years ago.
The trial of the men arrested for killing him has been dragging in the courts.
