The London Metropolitan Police has finally laid hands on Yaw Addo Darkwah, brother of Kwesi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) and formally cautioned him over the threat he issued on a London-based Ghanaian lady Dilys Fit Chic Sillah.
Adom News reported about a month ago that Yaw Darkwah threatened to send his “trolls” to one Dilys Sillah for posting videos of herself on YouTube commenting on the ongoing KKD alleged rape case.
Dilys posted three videos on Youtube critically analyzing the manner in which the KKD case was being handled at the socio-cultural and psychological levels. At no point did Dilys say that KKD was guilty of the offence. Neither did she say 19-year-old Ewuraeffe Orleans Thompson was innocent.
But KKD’s brother, Yaw Addo Darkwah sent a message to Dilys’ Facebook inbox threatening to send his “trolls” to her if she talked about KKD again. Dilys said subsequent to that initial threat, he (Yaw Darkwah) and one of his alleged trolls called Nanna A. Glow on Facebook sent several other very insulting and threatening messages to her on Facebook and YouTube.
She therefore reported the matter to Facebook and to the London Metropolitan Police on Tuesday January 20, 2015. The police traced Yaw to his South London home, made several calls to his house phone and left messages for him to report at the police station for interrogation but he ignored the police for more than two week.
He was given the option to make an appearance at the Police Station with his solicitors for questioning. After playing hide and seek with the police for over two weeks, he finally went to the police station on Monday, February 16, 2015 and was confronted with the evidence.
Yaw Darkwah reportedly admitted to the offence but denied knowing Nanna A. Glow, who issued even more threatening messages and made comments on social media to indicate she knows Yaw Darkwah personally.
Dilys tells Adom News that the police informed her that they have issued a formal caution to Yaw Darkwah and warned him never to contact Dilys again. “The police said they will find a way to get the Nanna A. Glow who is said to live in Canada and used the photo of a supposed dead young man as her profile picture on Facebook when she issued the threats,” she said.
Back on Facebook
Meanwhile, following Dilys’ report to Facebook, Yaw Darkwah’s official Facebook account was completely wiped out. He is however back on Facebook with a different name, Yaw Addo, having dropped the famous ‘Darkwah’ name that Nanna A. Glow bragged about as “untouchable”.
He has since apologized to Dilys on Facebook and informed the police of the apology.
Dilys is meanwhile in Ghana now pursuing her vision of enlightening women about their rights, and emphasizing the need for a culture that assists victims instead of vilifying them.
