Ada speaks at last

The controversial YFM presenter, Adaeze Onyinyechie Ayoka aka Ms Ada, who has been on admission at the Police Hospital after stag­ing her own kidnapping and gang- raping, has finally given out her statement to the police.

The Accra Regional Crime Officer, Chief Superintendent Paul Kontomah, confirmed to Daily Guide that Ada had given her own statement but declined to reveal its content.

He said the police were waiting patiently for Ms Ada to be officially discharged by doctors attending to her for her to assist them in their investigations.

Meanwhile, information gathered indicates that she is still in bed at the Police Hospital under 24-hour police guard.

Ada allegedly receives regular telephone calls from friends but pretends to be sick when the investigator-in-charge of the case visits her at the hospital.

The radio presenter and four other people reportedly staged the rape and kidnapping episode at a hotel at Abossey Okai in Accra, as told by the police and corroborated by the hotel owner in a later inter­view with Daily Guide.

I.J Frimpong, the owner of Joeregi Hotel located at the heart of the Abossey Okai spare parts mar­ket, said he rented out the hotel room to Ada and her gang upon being told that they were going to act a movie.

An 18-year-old painter, Nelson William, who was arrested on April 14, 2015 as an accomplice in the 'gang-rape' scandal, confirmed to the police that he was only carrying out the wish of Ada.

He has been granted bail, as investigations into the case continue.
