12-Year-Old Girl Allegedly Married to Gborbu Wulomo Found, Under Police Protection

The Ghana Police Service has successfully identified and located the 12-year-old girl who is alleged to have been married to the 63-year-old Gborbu Wulomo in Nungua, Accra.

Following the disturbing revelation, both the girl and her mother are now under the protective custody of the police.

This unsettling situation came to light amid growing concerns over child marriage practices in the region. The involvement of such a young girl in a marital union with a significantly older individual has sparked outrage and calls for immediate intervention.

In response to this distressing case, the Ghana Police Service has taken swift action, collaborating closely with the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, as well as the Department of Social Welfare. Together, they are working tirelessly to ensure the safety and well-being of the young girl and her mother while also conducting a thorough investigation into the matter.

Child marriage remains a serious issue globally, with detrimental effects on the physical, emotional, and psychological development of young girls. It is a violation of their fundamental human rights and undermines efforts towards achieving gender equality and social justice.

As the investigation unfolds, it is imperative that all relevant authorities and stakeholders remain vigilant and committed to safeguarding the rights of children in Ghana. The case underscores the urgent need for continued efforts to combat child marriage and protect the most vulnerable members of society.

The Ghana Police Service reassures the public that every effort is being made to ensure justice is served, and appropriate measures are taken to prevent such egregious acts from occurring in the future.
