Gang Rape: Let’s protect the future of juvenile rapists – Namoale pleads

Nii Amasah Namoale play videoNii Amasah Namoale

Former NDC MP for the La Dadekotopon Constituency, Nii Amasah Namoale has condemned the circulation of a vile video showing a young girl being gang-raped purported to have occurred in the Ashanti Region, Kumasi.

He joined the chorus of numerous Ghanaians who find the five minute act as “unfortunate” yet punishable offence by the juveniles.

Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show dubbed ‘Ghana Montie’; Namoale however noted that in as much as the offence is immoral, the ‘under age’ wrongdoers’ future must be protected.

“Let’s not ruin the future of these young ones. Let’s be circumspect with the kind of punishment awarded to them. Yes, what they did was wrong, but we can transform them to campaign against this act among the youth,” he said.

A five minutes video shows a girl purported to be 18years pinned to a mattress by one of her abusers while his accomplices take turns to perform sexual acts on her.

The victim who was resisting her attackers all-through the ordeal was restrained from escaping by her abusers who appeared to be having fun with the torture one after the other.

The police have so far arrested three of the suspects as four are on the run.
