Two persons have been arrested by the Somanya District Police Command in the Eastern Region for allegedly circulating nude pictures of a 20-year-old woman, a graduate of Yilo Krobo Secondary School.
The two, Prince Teye and one Amuzu, have been arraigned before the Somanya Circuit Court on charges of circulating obscene material and abetment of crime.
They pleaded not guilty to the crime and are to re-appear in court on May 23, 2017.
A statement from the Eastern Regional Police Command said Prince Teye had a sour relationship with his former girldfriend.
The statement said Prince later sent nude pictures to Amuzu after they broke up.
“During investigations, however, Prince mentioned Amuzu as the one he mistakenly sent the pictures to while he was trying to send it to his former girlfriend,” it said.
Investigations, however, revealed that the pictures were sent to Amuzu who later called the victim to demand an amount of money to ensure that the pictures were not released to the public,” the statement said.
The victim, identified as Lydia Tetteh, on April 22, 2017 lodged a complaint with the police, during which she informed the police that her brother brought nude pictures of her in a sexual intercourse with her former boyfriend, which were circulating on Facebook.
She told the police her brother had chanced upon her nude pictures which were circulating on Facebook.
