The Ghana Police Service says the 12-year old girl who allegedly married to Gborbu Wulomo and her mother are currently under police protection.

According to the Ghana Police Service, the location of the 12-year-old girl in Nungua, Accra has been identified.

“The girl and her mother are currently under police protection.

“The Ghana Police Service is working with the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection and the Department of Social Welfare to provide her with the necessary support while the matter is being investigated,” the Police explained in a statement.

However, African Education Watch calls for the immediate arrest of Gborbu Wulomo following the decision to marry a 12-year-old Girl.

The traditional marriage of a 63-year-old Gborbu Wulomo, Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII to a 12-year-old girl, Naa Okromo, has incurred the wrath of the public with African Education Watch calling for immediate arrest of the Overlord of the Ga-Dangme States.

The aftermath of the ceremony last Saturday, March 30, sparked public outrage among Ghanaians on social media.

The latest to join calls for the arrest of the Gborbu Wumolo is the Education Think-Tank African Education Watch.

Executive Director of the African Education Watch Kofi Asare in a Facebook post said “The law says it is illegal to marry a 12-year-old girl.”

He added, “The excuse that she won’t be performing conjugal duties is immaterial to the law,” and, “The cops must grab the Nungua Wulomo and cohorts now!”
