The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection has cautioned the media and individuals to stop sharing disturbing photos of the YFM presenter who was abducted and sexually assaulted by some unknown men in the Western Region.

In a press statement signed by its Communication Advisor, Abraham Asare on Tuesday said, "It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, reports that a female presenter of YFM in Takoradi has been abducted and gang raped. The Ministry finds it sad, that perpetrators of this heinous crime did not only assault the victim, but also shared photos of the act on social media.

"We condemn this reprehensible act in no uncertain terms and trust that the police will be able to find the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to book.

"We also plead with media houses and the general public to respect the privacy of the victim and stop publishing and sharing photos of her ordeal.

"The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection will follow this case closely to ensure that justice is done."

Police in the Western Region rescued the Takoradi-based radio presenter, who was kidnapped and assaulted sexually by her captors.

The Nigerian radio presenter resident in Ghana, Adaese Oda Onyinyechi is currently receiving treatment at the GHAPOHA Hospital in Takoradi.

News of her kidnap broke on Monday when her captors hijacked her Facebook account and posted nude pictures of her.

The police have also revealed that, this is the fifth time the lady presenter of YFM, was said to have been abducted and sexually assaulted.

According to the police, they have recorded a total of five incidents in the last two years and that the last incident before this latest one was reported in February, 2015.
