The member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has taken to his social media page to speak against the current rise in domestic violence in marriages.
According to Mr Ablakwa in a Tweet, real men use their strength to protect their partners and not to harm them.
His comments come after an officer of the Youth Empowerment Agency (YEA) in Akatsi is alleged to have beaten his girlfriend to death.
The Volta Regional Police PRO, Sgt. Prince Dogbatse, the victim Elizabeth Yesutor, complained to her friends about the constant abuse by her lover but failed to heed to advice to report the abuses to the police.
“I had background information on the issue and so I asked the victim to report to the police but that didn’t happen. The gentleman is now in our custody and hopefully, we’ll be going to court today, then we’ll see what happens.”
Mr Ablakwa said ” May the perpertraors never find peace when they are finally found out. May their earthy punishment serve as sufficient deterrence.”
