Seems Ghanaians are now giving us some bad press in the international media scene.
Frederick Amfo, 30, was living in the United States and working as an Uber Driver but he was arrested after a lady accused him of raping her on April 8, but after he was released on bail, he quickly fled back home.
Emil Murray, Frederick’s alleged rape victim said that on April 8, he forced her into the backseat of his car and raped her. “I was angry, I’m still angry. I’m confused,” she told American press.
Murray claims that on April 8 she was trying to get home when Amfo allegedly locked the doors to his vehicle and sexually assaulted her in the backseat.
“Within minutes, I was in a situation I couldn’t control and I was assaulted,” she said.
Police said DNA collected from a rape kit and Amfo’s car led to his arrest days later.
Amfo was charged with sexual assault. On Friday, a Quincy District Court set bail at $10,000 and he was given a stay-away order.
Court records show that Amfo was also given 24 hours to surrender his passport if he made bail. But he made bail later that afternoon without surrendering his passport.
Three days later, Murray was told that Amfo had fled to Ghana.
“If I went to Ghana and I committed a crime, I wouldn’t expect to be able to hop on plane and say sorry about that, here’s some money,” she said Tuesday. “I would expect to answer for it. Accountability. And there had been just zero.”
She told the Boston Herald that Amfo is a coward.
“He proclaims his innocence and then just leaves?” she said. “I feel hurt. … People get blamed for not coming forward and then get victimized more when they do.”
She said she doesn’t believe she will ever get justice.
“But I hope this shines a light and it won’t happen in the future,” she said, “because of me coming forward and me releasing my name and putting a face behind this whole situation.”
