Ghanaian songstress, Efya, has expressed her disgust at the brutal assault meted out to Kinto Rothmans, an organiser of the popular Friday Friends.

Efya shared her comments on Tuesday, soon after a video went viral showing Kinto being brutalised for allegedly having a homosexual relationship with one, Salim.

In the video, he was asked “You want do what?” to which he replied “I want chop Salim.” He was then beaten up. A picture circulating on social media also shows Kinto with blood dripping from his head.

But Efya has condemned the brutal acts on the victim in a series of tweets. She also posted a picture of the victim, saying “See what they did to someone’s son.” Below are some of her tweets:

Kinto’s issue comes on the heels of a running story regarding two students of St. Paul’s Senior High School (SPACO), who are said to have engaged in homosexual acts.

Students went on rampage, destroying school properties when authorities refused to allow them to beat up the alleged homosexual students.

Police were called to control the students, but a first-year student of the school was hit by a stray bullet when police fired warning shots to disperse the angry students.
