The Greater Accra Regional Police have confirmed that one person has been arrested in connection with the Y FM presenter's abduction and raped case.

This came to the fore during a press conference held by the Police at the Greater Police Command to address a story that has captured the imagination of the Ghanaian public.

The suspect, DSP Efia Tenge said was from Abossey Okai where the whole incident is believed to have been staged.

She said the lady at the centre of the alleged abduction and sexual assault orchestrated the entire episode to get back at her ex-boyfriend.

According to ASP Efia Tenge, the lady was also not a Nigerian as had initially been reported but a Ghanaian born under the name Persis Naana Akosua Appiah Antwi  but had changed her name after she had been adopted by a Nigerian family.

The Police are currently searching for two suspects after arresting an  individual, named as Nelson Williams (18) in what has turned out to be an elaborate set up.

Nelson according to ASP Tenge told the police in his statement that Ms Ada had not been sexually assaulted.

The victim is currently being held at the Police Hospital under police watch but is still in a traumatized state and unable to tell her story according to ASP Tenge.

The incredible story that has gripped the nation first came to the fore on Monday when pictures emerged on social media platforms of a young lady seemingly being sexually violated by a group of men. The woman in the image was later identified as the afore mentioned Ms Ada,a presenter with Takoradi based YFM who had been missing for about a week.

After an appeal was made to locate her, she was later reported found and admitted to the Takoradi GHAPOHA hospital from where the story has continued to unravel.
