A 23-year-old man suspected to be member of a syndicate circulating nude pictures of women for blackmail is in police grips.
The IT student and his unidentified accomplices are alleged to have circulated nude pictures of over a dozen women on social media.
She gave out her phone number to the supposed new friend on request. Later, the lady received another request from a Ghanaian male who turned out to be Desmond, proposing love.
Desmond then demanded she pay 800 Ghana cedis or give into sex, threatening to circulate her supposed nude photo, if she fails to succumb to either option. The lady opted for a sexual encounter with Desmond for which he arranged to meet her at a guest house at Kronum.
A group of youth which had been placed on alert arrested and hauled him to Ahenkro Police Station in the Afigya-Kwabre District. Station Officer, Inspector Peprah Assoah, says investigation has begun into the matter.
