Outspoken popular movie Producer Socrates Safo has called for the arrest of controversial student leader-aspirant of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) Nana Abena Korkor Addo for willingly and knowingly recording herself dancing naked and releasing it on social media.
Speaking on Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review” Socrates stated that he initially sympathized with the lady when he first saw the videos because he thought it was her enemies or opponent who released it to dent her image but he felt very disappointed when the lady herself came out through a separate video to admit she leaked the videos herself.
“According to classification regulations under the criminal code on publication of film or video, you can’t do pornography where you have explicit nudity. When you publish it, it’s criminal. So under the law, what the lady has done is criminal. It is different if her phone was stolen or missing or if she recorded it for her private use, she is safe but for her to come out and say that she published the videos herself, I think she should be arrested”.
Socrates recounted how he came under serious attack from the media, the public and stakeholders of the movie industry when he released a particular movie which was tagged as ‘soft porn’, adding that if people think it was wrong to produce that movie and they even criticized the title of that movie, then it is only right that Korkor would be arrest and questioned for indulging in such criminal act.
“If I should tell you what I went through based on a film that I shot and what I went through, when the same law was used against me and I am just sitting here today with a similar or even more serious incident and I can’t believe this lady is walking freely after she came out to state categorically that she released the videos herself”.
Two separate videos of a student of the University of Cape Coast has went viral on social media, showing a curvy lady who is said to be contesting for the position of President of the Students Representative Council (SRC) of the school, dancing naked inside her hostel.
After the videos were released on social media, names of certain prominent male Lawyers and Politicians popped up that they allegedly had sexual affairs with her, but some of the individuals mentioned in her publication have denied having any sexual relationship with her.
The Central Regional Police command started investigating the leakage of the tapes before Nana Abena Korkor Addo; a biomedical and forensic science student came out through a separate video to admit she leaked the videos herself.
Meanwhile, head of Communications for the University, Major Kofi Baah Bentum (rtd) disclosed in an interview with Starr FM that Nana Abena Korkor Addo left campus immediately after the videos came public and has not returned since.
