Some medical officials within the Police Hospital are pushing for a psychiatric examination of YFM presenter, Ms Ada.

The move, according to a report on Citi FM was due to the victim’s uncooperative attitude at the hospital where she is currently receiving psychological treatment.

According to the report, some sources close to Ms Ada claim she may be pretending to be unwell.

Checks indicate that heavy armed policemen are still guarding the suspect, who is under arrest in her hospital bed.

Reports from the police revealed that Princess Ada has since not been able to give the police her statement, even though investigators in charge of the case always visited the health facility to see if she could give her own statement to aid them in their investigations.

A police source told Daily Guide that the police would patiently wait until the day she will get well and be able to give her statement.

"Anytime police investigators get to the hospital to take her statement, Princess Ada goes deaf and dumb," the source revealed.

Ada and four other people reportedly staged the rape and kidnapping episode at a hotel at Abossey Okai in Accra as disclosed by the police.

An 18-year-old painter, Nelson William, who was arrested by the police as an accomplice in the gang-rape scandal, is helping the police in their investigations.

He claims he was only carrying out the wish of Ada.

Nelson, also known as Iddrisu, was seen in the photographs circulated on social media on top of Ada, supposedly raping her, but claims that he did not penetrate the lady and that it was part of the act as allegedly suggested by Ada, who appears in the act stark naked with bare breasts.

He said they did not take any payment from Ada in order to undertake the act.

It would be recalled that the YFM presenter, who enjoys a lot of listenership because of the versatility with which she handles her programme on air, was reportedly kidnapped for about five days. Ada has been in the news for some time now after news of her alleged kidnapping broke on Monday, April 13, 2015 followed by pictures of her being sexually assaulted under the guise of being gang-raped.

She mysteriously surfaced last Tuesday claiming that she was gang-raped by five boys after the porno­graphic pictures were seen circulating on the social media.

This created uproar leading to the police launching a full-scale investigation, in the course if which Nelson was arrested.

ASP Efia Tengey, Accra Regional Public Relations Officer, told journalists last week that Nelson said the act was staged by five persons including Ada herself, another lady friend of hers and two other young men in a hotel near Abossey Okai in Accra.

Giving reasons for the action, Nelson is said to have told the police that Adaeze being a friend of the five, approached them that the boyfriend had jilted her and so she wanted to portray a scene for the boyfriend to believe that his new girlfriend was behind the supposed abduction.

“They then went to the hotel, staged the act and took pictures of the scene, after which they posted them on the social media”, ASP Tengey said.
