The former Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, Nana Akwasi Agyeman, who is at the centre of a raging controversy over his alleged abduction and molestation of 11-year old Aaron Okyem Djan, a form one pupil of the University Primary in Kumasi, yesterday finally met the police.
This was after he had failed to honour several invitations extended to him by the police after they had gone to his Dichemso residence to invite him for interrogation.
At the time of going to press yesterday, credible sources said Nana Akwasi Agyeman had reported at the Tafo/Pankrono police station to give his statement to avoid being dragged to court this morning since the police were planning to go and serve him with a criminal summons for him to appear in court.
The police were said to have earlier in the day detailed some personnel to go and invite him but the former Mayor fondly called ‘Okumkom,’ was said to be having his meal and promised the police that he would be at the station later.
But that was not meant to be since he failed to show up at the police station several hours after the officers had left his house.
The source told DAILY GUIDE that when phone calls were put through to him, Akwasi Agyeman told the police officers he was on his way to the station and that he was stuck in a traffic jam.
He was said to have promised to be with them in no time.
Earlier in the day when our regional reporters contacted the Tafo/Pakrono Divisional Crime Officer, Boakye Ansah on phone, he retorted “Master, all that I can tell you is that the case is still under investigation.”
Pressed further to know whether the police had taken the caution statement of the former Mayor on the issue, the Divisional Crime Officer, who wondered how our reporters got his number insisted, “I am saying that the case is still under investigation” after which he dropped the line.
Later in the evening, the Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Victor Adusa Poku, who seemed frustrated by Akwasi Agyeman’s attitude, was said to have called and informed his superiors at the Regional command about the former Mayor’s foot-dragging.
The superior police officers at the Regional command were then said to have asked the criminal summons and the docket of the case to be sent to them.
Not long after that, around 6:30pm, Nana Akwasi Agyeman was said to have shown up at the police station where he was interrogated and made to write a statement to narrate what exactly happened on that fateful Thursday when he was alleged to have molested and detained Master Aaron Okyem Djan.
Nana Akwasi was alleged to have detained the 11-year old pupil in his house on Thursday at about 4:30 pm for allegedly beating his 5-year-old son, Nana Kwame.
He was said to have taken the young boy through a harrowing experience for almost four hours that the boy was under ‘detention’.
He later fired a warning shot to scare the innocent-looking boy.
It took the intervention of a woman said to be Okumkom’s sister to free Aaron from the ‘lions’ den’ around 8:30pm that day.
