Starr FM reports that celebrated broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwah has wondered why people lodging next to him at the African Regent Hotel – where he allegedly raped a young girl – never heard the alleged victim – who has filed rape complaints against him at the Airport Police station – scream for help, if he indeed raped her. KKD is being held by the Airport Police Command for the alleged non-bailable offence. The sexual encounter is alleged to have happened in a “bathroom” of the African Regent Hotel suite after the Rip The Runway fashion Show.
His alleged victim, known only as Effe, filed the complaint after which the CEO of the Finest Productions was arrested Saturday night. KKD told Starr FM’s Kobby Gomez-Mensah in an interview at the crime scene Sunday that certainly someone would have heard the lady fight him off if he indeed raped her.
According to him, the two of them even had drinks together after their “consensual” sexual intercourse and thus befuddled by the turn of events. The father of two has been taken back to the Airport Police station where he is expected to spend the night. Hordes of his friends and loved ones swamped the crime scene as well as the police station to show their solidarity.
Meanwhile, the Police have refused to name the 19-year-old girl allegedly sexually assaulted by showbiz icon Kwasi Kyei Darkwah. “For now we want to protect her identity [but] from the information the police has, she is not a minor,” public affairs director of the Accra regional police Command ASP Afia Tengey told Starr FM.
“Now she is the victim in the case and I would wish that her identity is protected,” Tengey stressed.
KKKD will spend another night in Police custody. He will also be held by the Police until investigations into an alleged sexual assault complaint filed against him are done and over with.
“For now he will be with the Police until we are done with investigations,” Accra regional Public Affairs Director ASP Afia Tengey added.
Rape is a non-bailable offence in Ghana. If convicted, KKD could be handed down a prison sentence of between five and 25 years.
