The Ghana Police Service has 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. 

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.

Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII, the 63-year-old Gborbu Wulomo, received criticism when a video surfaced online showing him in a marriage ceremony with a 12-year-old girl, Naa Okromo.

The traditional ceremony, which attracted attention, took place on Saturday, March 30, 2024, in Nungua.

But Gborbu Wulomo defended his actions by stating that the girl would not be expected to fulfil marital duties.
