Two suspected homosexuals, who were allegedly caught having sex in a hotel room at Mataheko in Accra, have told the Kaneshie Police that they were forced to go naked and pose for the cameras by some hotel attendants.
The two- Roland Brown, 26-year-old man from Takoradi and Eric Nti, 20-year-old Senior High School (SHS) lever, told the police that they booked the hotel room to rest but the attendants forcibly entered the room few minutes later to arrest them for allegedly having anal sex.
Nti told the police that “Roland was in the bathroom having his bath while I was wearing my boxer shorts inside the room when one of the attendants, the receptionist of the hotel, stormed our room unannounced and accused us of having anal sex.”
He said the receptionist later called other workers at the hotel, who forced them to go naked and act like they were having sex for pictures to be taken.
The bizarre pictures of the two having anal sex went viral on social media Sunday evening.
In view of that, the Kaneshie Divisional Police Command has apprehended two of the hotel staff to assist in investigations.
The pictures of the two have been widely condemned by members of the general public, who have called on the police to investigate the matter and deal with culprits for taking the pictures and circulating them on social media.
The two suspected homosexuals are also in custody assisting in investigations.
ACP Ernest Owusu, who confirmed the issue, said the two suspected homosexuals were handed over to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) on Sunday evening by hotel officials for engaging in anal sex in the hotel room at Mataheko.
He said the hotel attendants informed the police that the two men rented a room to relax and to take their bath before embarking on a journey to Takoradi on Sunday around 4:30pm.
According to the receptionist, he spotted the suspects having anal sex through the window while attending to another client and used his cell phone to take pictures of them after which he called the police.
The police commander said upon interrogations, it was discovered that the statements given by the hotel attendants were inaccurate.
“A careful look at the pictures of the accused persons circulating on social media even reveals that the said pictures were not taken through a window as claimed by the attendants but in the open.
In view of that, the police commander said the suspects identified two attendants who are currently in custody assisting in investigations.
“Even though some of us may be against homosexuality in the country as our religious beliefs infringe on that, the police do not want people to take the law into their own hands and humiliate, molest innocent persons on suspicion that they are homosexuals without proper evidence.”
He said investigations were still ongoing to uncover the truth and the culprits would definitely be arraigned before court to serve as a deterrent to others.
It would be recalled that a bizarre picture of a man bonking an SHS student went viral on social media Sunday evening.
Sources said the two suspects told the receptionist that they wanted to relax and freshen up in the hotel room before embarking on the journey to Takoradi.
The said receptionist, who later became suspicious of their movements and demeanour, gave them a room.
