A man in Ghana will spend the next three years in jail after he was found guilty of publishing his ex-girlfriend's obscene photos and video on social media sites. Prince Teye was convicted by The Odumase Krobo Circuit Court in the Eastern region for publishing obscene material.
The court was informed the accused person captured the photos and video when the ex-lover visited him at his room where they had a good time.
There was an agreement between the two, that none of the material recorded would be shared by any other person, the prosecution told the court.
After the act, Teye's 22-year-old former lover was shocked when her cousin said she had seen her naked photos on Facebook. The incident prompted the girl's parents to report him to police where he was arrested along with two others; Bismark Amuzu and Raphael Lawer Raphael.
During the probe, Teye told investigators that he had mistakenly sent the photos and video to Amuzu. Teye denied the charges in court but was found guilty after a full trial, with the same court finding his two accomplices not liable for abetting his illegal actions.
The accused was a trader and was in an intimate relationship with the complainant, according to the prosecutor. The magistrate said the prosecution had proven beyond doubt that Teye was responsible for the publication of the obscene material.
