The bitten fire officer has his own version of the story.
The fire commander whose penis was bitten by his subordinate over attempted rape has stated that the lady in question is his girlfriend. Eric Ansah, the bitten fire officer, reportedly told the police in his statement, that his subordinate who bit his penis, is his lover.
Mr. Ansah, the Municipal Commander at the Techiman Fire Station in the Brong-Ahafo Region, was bitten hard on his penis by the supposed victim, who was trying to save herself from getting raped. The fireman who has been suspended for the suspected sexual assault, bled profusely after he was bitten, and was taken to the Dr. Kesse hospital at Techiman.
The lady, who preferred to be called Ataa, is a subordinate employed under the Youth In Fire module of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA). Telling her own side of the story, Ataa reported that the man indeed attempted to rape her at her residence.
Narrating the incident, she said she was at her home last Saturday, when Eric Ansah came with his clothes to have them washed. She continued that when she collected the bag and turned to enter her room, Mr. Ansah followed her and sat on one of the chairs in the room.
She then asked him to leave, but he declined and began fondling her breasts and pulling her cloth. She said she resisted initially but the officer told her that as the municipal fire officer, he could get whatever he wanted, threatening to victimize her at their workplace. This was when she give in with a different motive to defend herself.
Ataa continued that after pretending to have given in, she bit the officer hard on his penis three minutes into the ‘romancing’. The victim explained that the bitten fire officer bled profusely, to the extent she began calling for help, for fear he could lose his life.
The lady has been commended by many for being brave enough to defend herself. Private Legal Practitioner, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, has called on the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVSU), to make the lady an ambassador for the fight against Rape.
So far, there have been no reactions regarding Eric Ansh’s claims that she is his girlfriend.
