One of the two teenage girls, both cousins, allegedly defiled in police cells at Vakpo was forced to stop schooling because she could not withstand taunts by her school mates.

The victim, who is about 15-years-old, would have been in Junior High School Form One, is carrying a five-month-old pregnancy, her father, Mr Kenneth Asamoah, told the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday at Vakpo.

Her cousin, an apprentice, has also left the town.

Mr Asamoah said her daughter told him that after the incident all her friends at school deserted her.

He said her daughter said as a result, she was feeling uncomfortable and could not concentrate in class compelling her to drop out of school.

Mr Asamoah said her daughter was also unwilling to go to any other school in the community because information regarding her alleged defilement had become community gossip.

Mr Bennet Kaka, Circuit Supervisor of Vakpo who spoke to the GNA at the Vakpo Evangelical Presbyterian Primary School where the victim was schooling, confirmed that the girl had dropped out of school for almost two years.

The Headmistress of the School however declined to speak to the GNA.

The victims were allegedly defiled at a police cell at Vakpo where they were detained over a scuffle with a woman.

The two alleged that while in the cell in the evening two young men came to them and took them to another room at the police station and defiled them at midnight while the officer on duty ignored their shouts and screams for help.
