A petty trader at Opeikuma, a suburb of Kasoa in the Awutu Senya East District of the Central Region, Christiana Ofori, has been brutally raped and beaten by land guards.

 The victim survived the brutalities but with several serious injuries.

The case has been reported to the Kasoa Divisional Police Command pending investigations into the matter.

Narrating her ordeal to PrimeNewsGhana,  Madam Ofori explained that on the 10th of August 2018,a group of land guards come to Opeikuma where she lives to forcibly sell a piece of land  which is a also a foot path and a road to a prospective buyer.

According to the woman, she questioned the land guards over the purported sale of land by these thugs to their prospective client.

The move did not go down well with the land guards who accused the woman of being nosy and making them lose a prospective buyer.

They therefore threatened to deal with me she added.

Madam Ofori added that, a week later, these land guards came to lay ambush in Opeikuma in a bid to allegedly kill her.

According to Christiana Ofori, on that faithful day, she was on her way to the market when she met these land guards close to her house.

She alleged that they attacked her and engaged in an argument with her. One of them allegedly slapped her, dragged her to the ground holding her neck.

She added that they started squeezing life out of her.

"One of them started removing my panties while others were punching me in the face at the same time but I struggled with him till I become weak”, she explained.

 

She said they eventually took off her panties and one of them raped her as the rest looked on.

According to Christiana Ofori, after the rape, they continued to squeeze her neck to take life out of her.

She explained that, after falling unconscious, the land guard thought she was dead and so dumped her body at a nearby stream close to her house.

The woman added that few hours later, she regained consciousness but could not move her legs so she had to crawl on the floor to an open space upon hearing the sound of his husband's motor bike.

She was later taken to the Winneba Government Hospital and doctors confirmed that she had indeed been raped.

Christiana Ofori was however quick to add that, she was able to recognize one Mensah who was part of these land guard from the onset of the issue, adding that, if  the Kasoa  Police is able to apprehend Mensah, he will be able to produce the rest of the rapist land guards.
