A Senior High School student in Kumasi has been captured on a video recording receiving an amount of GH¢20 after a bout of sex with a 22-year-old man at a hideout in the Garden City.
The video recording, which was making the rounds in the Ashanti Regional capital, had caused consternation among parents and showed the girl and her partner dressing up after the session.
The one-hour-thirty-minutes sexual encounter had Kwame Asare aka ‘Festival,’ believed to be an SHS leaver, engaged in sexual intercourse with the school girl.
On the tape, Asare and the young girl, believed to be in her teens, got undressed soon after entering a room, and started what seemed to be an enjoyable sexual expedition.
Asare, whose manhood was unusually long, was seen bonking the girl at different postures until the young girl started telling him she was tired and could not continue any longer.
Festival, now in police grips, was suspected to be part of a five-man gang that lured young girls into a rented room at Kokoso near Kumasi where they bonked these girls and record the sexual activity on video tape for commercial purposes on the internet.
The Police arrested Asare at the Kumasi suburb of Adum based on an investigation undertaken by William Kwame Anokye of New Mercury FM, a local radio station.
Anokye said he tracked Festival and his group of five, made up of boys below 23, for close to three months before getting hold of some of their recorded sexual bouts on tape.
He then reported their activities to the police, with the subsequent arrest of Festival, now in Prison custody in Kumasi.
Anokye told DAILY GUIDE that Festival and his group sold 30 minutes of every recorded sexual bout to their partners abroad for US $10,000. Their partners would then post the film on their website for the public to watch across the world.
He said the group had been in the illicit business for some time now until a misunderstanding over how money generated from a previous sale should be shared among them.
One of the members who thought he had been cheated in the sharing of the money eventually reported his group’s illegal activities to Anokye.
The New Mercury FM reporter eventually got hold of a recorded sexual act involving Asare and the SHS girl.
He said he visited the Assemblies of God SHS where he showed the recorded sexual act to the headmaster of the school who admitted that indeed, the girl on the tape was a final year student of the school.
The girl’s parents were then informed about the incident by the school’s authorities and a plan was hatched to apprehend those behind it.
Anokye said the girl on the tape was made to call Asare on phone pretending she wanted to meet him again. Asare then told the girl where he was and the Police quickly moved in to arrest him.
The suspect, with his accomplices now at large, according to reports, usually sold the recorded sexual bout to a website abroad for thousands of US Dollars, unknown to the young girls.
The suspect seemed to have a connection with the Bekwai sex scandal which made the headlines two years ago.
