Arsenal star, Thomas Partey has been accused of rape for the second time in a few weeks.

Recall, last month reports emerged from the United Kingdom that a Premier League player was questioned about a rape incident.

According to the gossip sites and reactions on Twitter at the time, it was suggested that the Ghanaian midfielder was fingered by his wife, Sara Bella for rape.

During that period, Partey was absent from Arsenal's pre-season camp. He has, however, returned with the Premier League campaign just eight days away.

After the dust settled on the initial reports, a Twitter user with the handle, @deffonotchaur on Thursday, July 28 accused the midfielder of rape. She highlighted several conversations attributed to the Arsenal star while stating that Partey is a serial rapist.

According to her, she came forward as a rape victim to the police in the United Kingdom but the case did not go through the required legal procedure.

She shared screenshots of text messages exchanged with Partey on social media apps Snapchat and WhatsApp.

According to her, she decided to share her opinion with the public that Partey was a rapist.

Partey rose to the top of the trends on Twitter in Ghana and Nigeria with high-profile personalities and several others sharing their opinions on the issue.

The reactions to Partey were mostly negative while some urged that social media was not suitable to judge rape accusations.

Partey and his legal team are yet to respond to the rape accusations by the lady.

It is, however, expected that his club, Arsenal, would temporarily excuse him from action ahead of the Premier League opening day fixture against London rivals Crystal Palace.
