Widow of former MP for Abuakwa North, J.B. Danquah-Adu, says the investigator in charge of her husband’s murder case have severally approached her in a sexually suggestive manner.
In a Facebook post to mark three years of her husband’s passing, the wife of the murdered MP,Ivy Heward-Mills, alleged that at one time, a team of police officers at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) asked her if she wears waist beads.
She also revealed that one of the investigators, a married man, had the guts to propose marriage to her.
Madam Ivy Heward-Mills seemed to have lost confidence in the justice system of Ghana as she juxtaposed a similar murder case that happened in the UK to her husbands case which happened almost around the same time.
Her Facebook post reads “36 months after JB’s murder, Ghana is still playing “Ludo” & “Oware” or perhaps “chacha” with the matter. Between then and now, I have been harassed and threatened by family, citizens & police alike. I have had jesters amongst his peers call me names and cast aspersions at me; perhaps out of fear of their own dark shadows! I have had de-facto spokespersons, aided by media houses, slandering me.
“I have had his townsfolk attack my family and I. I have been summoned to the Police HQ on countless occasions and subjected to what I would casually describe as “the act of scrubbing a fresh wound with Himalayan rock salt” and topped up with a million and one questions including, to my shock, a very gleeful “so madam do you wear waist beads?” in a meeting room populated by a men only CID team who perhaps thought it was their birth right to get familiar with what’s in every woman’s underwear!
“And if you think that’s inappropriate, try that Sunday morning when one of those men; a man at the helm of investigating my husband’s murder, thought it sensible to muster the sheer unadorned temerity, call me and tell me how beautiful / sexy he thinks I am and give me reasons why I must marry him; an already married man. Yes, he had the audacity… and this was the head of a certain significant unit at the CID… and I’m supposed to trust that they did a great job? May God forgive him.”
She, however, expressed her trust in God to help resolve the murder of her husband.
“…I might look at the entire situation with disdain but I know God is watching; He doesn’t sleep! No matter how long it takes, no matter how long… GOD’S MILL WILL GRIND.
Continue to rest in our maker’s bosom, Kofi; continue to be a guardian angel watching over your three girls. & forgive them… them that stole all you had. Them that stole your life…”
