Ghana Police Service pursues 63-year-old Ga Chief for marrying a 12-year-old girl

Date:

Ghana Police Service has issued a press statement following the controversial marriage between 63-year-old Nuumo Borketey Laweh Tsuru XXXIII who is 63 years old and a 12-year-old young girl named Naa Okromo.

For the past three days now, Ghanaians on social media have been calling on IGP Dampare to swiftly enact the arrest of the Chief who has since been tagged as a paedophile.

However, the elders of Nungua have fired back at Ghanaians calling on the gender ministry to probe into the issue.

Here's what the law says about the 63-year-old Ga chief marrying a 12-year-old girl

Speaking to newsmen, the elders insisted that the people calling on the police and gender ministry are ignorant.

Reacting to this issue which has since become a national topic, the Ghana Police Service has publicly communicated that both the minor and her mother are in their custody.

A part of the press release from the Ghana Police Service reads;

THE GHANA POLICE SERVICE HAS IDENTIFIED AND LOCATED THE 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO IS ALLEGED TO HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO THE 63-YEAR-OLD GBORBU WULOMO IN NUNGUA, ACCRA. THE GIRL AND HER MOTHER ARE CURRENTLY UNDER POLICE PROTECTION.
