We were forced to have gay sex – Suspected homosexuals

Published

on

Two suspected homosexuals, Roland Brown and Eric Nti, who were allegedly caught having sex in a hotel room at Mataheko in Accra, have opened up on their involvement.

The duo accused hotel attendants of forcing them to go naked and pose for the cameras.

The suspects, 26 and 20-year-old respectively, were arrested by the Kaneshie Police after photos of them in the act went viral on social media at the weekend.

The pictures of the two have been widely condemned by members of the general public, who also called on the police to investigate the matter and deal with culprits for taking the pictures and circulating them on social media.

The duo, Brown, from Takoradi and Nti, a Senior High School, SHS leaver, in their confession to the police, said they booked the hotel room to rest but the attendants forcibly entered the room few minutes later to arrest them for allegedly having anal sex.

In his confession, Nti said, “Roland was in the bathroom having his bath while I was wearing my boxer shorts inside the room when one of the attendants, the receptionist of the hotel, stormed our room unannounced and accused us of having anal sex.

“The receptionist later called other workers at the hotel, who forced us to go naked and act like we were having sex for pictures to be taken,” Nti added.

Confirming the arrest on Thursday, ACP Ernest Owusu of the Kaneshie Divisional Police Command, said two of the hotel staff have been arrested to assist in investigations.

Owusu said, “The two suspected homosexuals are also in custody assisting in investigations.

“They were handed over to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit, DOVVSU on Sunday evening by hotel officials for engaging in anal sex in the hotel room at Mataheko.

“The hotel attendants informed the police that the two men rented a room to relax and to take their bath before embarking on a journey to Takoradi on Sunday around 4:30pm.

“According to the receptionist, he spotted the suspects having anal sex through the window while attending to another client and used his cell phone to take pictures of them after which he called the police.

“Upon interrogations, it was discovered that the statements given by the hotel attendants were inaccurate.

“A careful look at the pictures of the accused persons circulating on social media even reveal that the said pictures were not taken through a window as claimed by the attendants but in the open.

“The suspects identified two attendants who are currently in custody assisting in investigations.

“Even though some of us may be against homosexuality in the country as our religious beliefs infringe on that, the police do not want people to take the law into their own hands and humiliate, molest innocent persons on suspicion that they are homosexuals without proper evidence.

“Investigations are still ongoing to uncover the truth and the culprits would definitely be arraigned before court to serve as a deterrent to others,” Owusu noted.

Police arrest 2 MMM operators

Published

on

The Ghana Police Service has arrested two persons alleged to be luring Ghanaians to subscribe to the Ponzi scheme, MMM.

The arrests, made by the Tema Community One police over the weekend, was a result of the directive from the Bank of Ghana warning the public against patronizing the scheme that has been discredited in several countries, including Nigeria.

Though the police is yet to give any official update on the arrest, a victim of the scheme, who spoke Citi Business News, said he decided to alert the police largely due to the public information on the illegality of MMM’s operations in Ghana.

“The gentlemen who approached my friend and I were not convincing in their product offering so I became suspicious and asked my friend whom I was with to ignore them. It was also because I had heard of the business in the news cautioning the public to be weary of the scheme,” he explained.

Afisa Djaba under fire over rape and dressing comment

Published

on

Ghanaians, particularly social media users, have reacted to comments by the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, over ‘women and rape.’

This is not the first time the minister has provoked the ire of the public.

In her recent outburst, the Minister, during her opening address as the Co-Chairperson at the 90th anniversary and Speech and prize giving day for Krobo Girls Presbyterian Senior School at the weekend, urged girls not to attract rape by wearing provocative clothing.

Madam Djaba intimated that girls’ wearing short dresses could attract a rapist.

She said, “In conclusion, I want to say to you, be bold, be confident, be respectful. If you wear a short dress, it’s fashionable but, know that it can attract somebody who would want to rape or defile you.

“You must be responsible for the choices you make.”

The Minister also had some words for teachers who sexually assaulted girls.

According to her, “It is an abuse of their rights and you are their role model, you must not be the one to abuse the rights of the young girls.”

But some Ghanaians did not take her correlation between rape and girls’ dressing lightly.

Many of them have taken to social media to express their displeasure, with a number of them questioning her logic and others accusing her of victim blaming and shaming.
