Five Nigerians have been arrested by the Tema Police command for allegedly raping a woman in the presence of her husband.
The incident which took place at Tema Community 25 happened during a robbery attack on May 8, 2019.
The suspects were arrested after the victim and husband sighted them walking in the neighbourhood on Friday, June 14, 2019.
The suspects are Ako Anthony, 36; Kelvin Damas, 23; Obas Godsay, 16; Donald Pande, 24; and Olufu Rhema, 16.
According to the Crime Officer of the Prampram Divisional Police Command, Chief Superintendent Cecilia Arko, the suspects are notorious for targeting mobile money vendors, especially women. They storm the homes of their targets with machetes and guns and rape them after taking away their valuables.
Narrating the story to the media, she said about a month ago, four of the suspects attacked the couple at their residence at about 3 a.m.
The suspects, who were targeting a mobile money vendor, mistakenly went to the house of the couple and held them hostage before demanding money and valuables.
She said because the couple were unable to meet their demand, one of the suspects sent the woman into another room and raped her while his accomplices filmed the act with a cell phone.
Chief Superintendent Arko said on Thursady, June 13 the couple were walking in the neighbourhood when the woman spotted the suspect who removed his mask before filming the act.
She said she alerted her husband who confronted the suspect on the street.
