Embattled fashion icon Kwasi Kyei Darkwah is being prepared for court over a sexual assault complaint filed against him.
The CEO of the Finest Productions has been in the custody of the Airport Police Command since Saturday night around 10 pm following his arrest after the 19-year-old alleged victim lodged a complaint with the police right after having sex with KKD at the African Regent Hotel.
KKD insists the sexual intercourse with the young girl was consensual but the girl has stuck to her ground.
The Police have said they will make sure they work within the 48-hour limit for holding suspects and ensure they do not infringe on the ace broadcaster’s rights.
The 48-hour limit ends around 10 pm on Monday, December 29, 2014.
KKD’s Lawyer Nana Asante Bediatuo told Starr Fm’s Kobby Gomez-Mensah in an interview at the Airport Police station Monday that his client has a strong case for bail.
Meanwhile the Airport Police Command is securing CCTV footage from the African Regent Hotel in its investigations towards getting to the bottom of the matter.
According to the Public Affairs Director of the Accra Regional Police command, ASP Afia Tenge, the Police will explore all necessary avenues to establish the truth in the matter.
She told StarrFMonline.com that the Service will not “hesitate to seek a court order”, if that is what it will take to secure credible evidence from the CCTV to bring a conclusion to the matter.
On Sunday, Officers from the criminal investigations department of the Ghana Police service went to the crime scene, together with the celebrated suspect – a father of two – to inspect the place of the alleged incident.
Rape is a non-bailable offence in Ghana. If convicted, KKD could be handed down a prison sentence of between five and 25 years.
