A renowned female Nigerian-born Radio/Television presenter, Adaeze Onyinyechi Ayoka also known as Adalicious Ada has been allegedly kidnapped and raped.
The Ghana Y FM presenter is born to a Ghanaian mother and a Nigerian father from Umuahia, Abia State.
Ada’s captors later released her in the early hours of Tuesday, April 14, 2015 and she is currently receiving medical attention at the female/maternity ward of the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority (GPHA) Hospital in Takoradi, Ghana.
The General Manager of YFm Franklin Kofi Fiati and Nana Kwesi Coomson paid a visit to the hospital but the administrators restricted them from seeing Ada.
They were advised to return later as the doctor on duty, Dr. Boateng was checking up on admitted patients at the facility.
The hospital staff said, “She is sleeping now so even if we allow you people to see her, you cannot talk to her. She is well and has no bruises on her. Her dreadlocks are shaved, that’s the only thing I can say.”
According to reports, the abductors gang raped and shaved off the presenter’s dreadlocks in the attack.
Her colleagues revealed that some unknown persons had threatened the presenter and the Programmes Manager of the station Julius sometime in 2014 although she reported the case to the police.
The morning show host of Y FM, Kwame Legend, said, “In the threatening text, she was told by the people that she was going to die, they will kill her.
“The last time Ada was seen at work was the Thursday before Easter Friday. I even had a chat with her on Easter Friday, since then I haven’t heard from her and haven’t seen her too.”
One of the victim’s neighbours who spoke under anonymity said “She came home last night around 12am and she started knocking at the door.
“As soon as we saw her, she started asking for food and when she was given the food, she started hitting us with the food given her. She was taken to the hospital around 1am.”
