“After robbing our items from the room, one of the robbers asked me to cover my face with my blanket, after which he vigorously raped me,” these were the words of a 24-year-old graduate of the University of Ghana who recounted her ordeal to DAILY GUIDE after a robbery attack in their house.
The victim, according to information gathered, was raped at knife-point at Ashaley Botwe, near Adenta, by one of two suspected armed robbers who attacked her household around 2am on November 30, 2011.
The suspects are Daniel Klu, 24, and Daniel Zoglo aka ‘Kobi Commando’, 18.
They are currently in the grips of the Adenta District Police awaiting trial. Narrating the story to Daily Guide, the victim said when she attempted to shout, one of the suspects attempted to stab her with his knife.
She however identified the suspects as her attackers but said Daniel Zoglo was the one who raped her. The suspects robbed the victim of her laptop, two mobile phones and a gas cylinder.“I reported the incident to the police that same day and was given a medical form for medical attention,” the victim said.
Confirming the story to Daily Guide, the commander in charge of the Adenta District Police, Stephen K. Ahiatafu, said the suspects were arrested on December 12, 2011 by the police after they succeeded in robbing another victim at Prestige Estate, Ashaley Botwe.

Upon seeing a group of security men from Prestige Estate, the robbers bolted with the booty, leaving their Hyundai taxicab with registration number GC6800-11, behind.
The vehicle was towed to the Manjor Police Station by the security men, together with the victim.
Around 2:30am that same day, suspect Daniel Klu, owner of the vehicle, came to the Adenta District Police Station to lodge a complaint that his taxicab, packed in front of his house, had been stolen.

Upon interrogation, Daniel Klu mentioned Daniel Zoglo as his accomplice.Some of the items were found in the robbers’ room upon a search by the police.
The raped victim identified the suspect after she was invited to the station by the police for an identification parade.Some of the items taken from her were also found in Zoglo’s room upon the search.
The suspects would be taken to court soon, according to the district commander.
