Nana Asante Bediatuo, Counsel for showbiz and fashion icon Kwasi Kyei Darkwah, has described as “false and ridiculous”, an allegation of rape leveled against the former radio presenter.
“It is not true that he has raped anybody. He had a consensual relationship with a woman and for some reason – I don’t know and I don’t care what her motive is – she now claims it’s rape but that is false,” Bediatuo told Starr FM’s Osei Owusu Amankwaah in an exclusive interview Sunday.
KKD has been taken to the crime scene as part of the investigations.
Rape is a non-bailable offence in Ghana. Convicted rapists could face between five and 25 years in prison.
The CEO and Founder of the Finest Productions was earlier questioned in connection with an alleged sexual assault complaint lodged against him by one Effe.
His Lawyer Nana Asante Bediatuo and some friends and family swamped the Police station in solidarity with the former radio presenter.
The circumstances surrounding KKD’s arrest are sketchy but information picked up by StarrFMonline.com indicate that he was picked up at the African Regent hotel at the Airport residential area Sunday.
It is, however, not clear if the sexual incident between KKD and the complainant took place at the same Hotel.
While KKD insists the girl consented to the sexual intercourse between them, the complainant has stuck to her grounds claiming she was raped by the former radio presenter.
