The Ministry of Gender is abhorred about the way photographs taken by abductors of Ms Adaeze Onyinyechie Ayoka during her ordeal are being circulated on social media platforms and media platforms as well.
This sentiment was contained in a press release issued and signed by the Communications Advisor of the Ministry, Mr Abraham Asare.
According to the release, the story of the ordeal of Ms Ada had come to the attention of the ministry and they are monitoring closely to see the outcome of the case.
“We condemn this reprehensible act in no uncertain terms and trust that the police will be able to find the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to book,” it read.
Mr Asare urged media houses and the general public to respect the privacy of the victim and stop publishing and sharing photos of her ordeal.
In a related development, the Western Regional Crime Officer, Superintendent Reuben Asiwoko, disclosed to The Finder that the victim is in the hospital receiving treatment.
“We are hoping that she is able to speak to us about what really happened. However, we are not resting on our oars,” he stressed.
According to him, investigations are ongoing to bring the perpetrators to book though no arrests have yet been made.
