Adu Dankwa, The Ex-Minister For Women...

Is Not Speaking The Truth. What Really necessitated his Girl Friend?

Adu Dankwa, the former MP, Deputy Minister for Women and Children’s Affairs of the erstwhile New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration, was under cross examination in a case in which his girlfriend is standing trial with two others for robbing and causing harm to him.

Mr. Danquah-Adu, who visited the rented apartment of Narteley, located at East Legon on her invitation and on reaching the bedroom, Narteley, whom he had been in a relationship with for three years, unzipped his trousers and it fell down.

The former MP who claimed to have heard the door of the bathroom swing open, and a click of a camera. Narteley is standing trial, together with her accomplice,Charles Antwi and Nana Yaw Ampong, on charges of conspiracy to rob and causing harm to the former MP, Adu Dankwa.
They have pleaded not guilty, and are currently remanded in police custody.

The ex-MP who has an injured arm, told the court, presided over by Justice Mustapha Habib Logoh, that on pulling up his trousers after the click of a camera, Antwi and Ampong forcibly pushed him onto the bed.

According to him, all the accused persons attacked him and removed his pair of trousers, which contained GH¢1,000, denying that he attempted to wrestle the camera from Ampong. Mr. Danquah-Adu further stated that it was the accused persons who rather attacked him with knives, and as they swung the knife towards his head, he blocked it was his hand, resulting in the injury to his hand.

He told the court that his girlfriend actually wanted to hit his head with a chair, but Ampong taped his mouth to silence him and also his girlfriend did not use her cloth to tie the injured arm when blood was oozing out, it was rather an onlooker who used his shirt to tie his arm.

Narteley Nettey Yirenkyiwaa was alleged to have organised Antwi and Ampong to take pictures of the former MP in a compromising situation. In the course of taking the pictures, a struggle ensured and the MP sustained a cut, allegedly losing his items, including a gold ring.

"All was not well and not good" and "Two wrongs cannot make right"! but my question still ramains, WHY Narteley Nettey Yirenkyiwaa who had been for 3 years with the ex-Deputy Minister for "WOMEN" and Children’s Affairs of the erstwhile New Patriotic Party (NPP) plan such a harmful and strange act against her own boy friend?
I don't think it was only because of that peanut GH¢1,000 Adu Dankwa, the ex-Minister for WOMEN, had in his pocket at that time.

Why did Narteley at all the arrange for the Picture shooting?

Hmm!! Ghanna Ministers and girls!!!! Anane, Muntaka, Adu-Dankwa and, and, and!
