Two men arrested for having sex were forced to pose for naked photos to ‘shame’ them, reports have claimed.
Ghana authorities were called after a hotel employee burst into a room and caught a couple having sex, media outlets said.
The police were called, the men were ordered to pose naked together and even forced to simulate sex for the photos.
These were spread across social media in an attempt to publicly shame them.
The 28-year-old man and his 18-year-old lover were arrested.
The Daily Guide published the photos of the naked men with the headline ‘Man Bonks [High School] Boy In Hotel]’.
It claims the older man is a ‘known gay activist who lures young boys with money’. The newspaper claims they met on Facebook, and that the 28-year-old got him to the hotel room by offering him ‘juicy gifts’.
It is not unusual for tabloids in some African countries with extreme homophobic laws to publish gay pornography on their front page.
In 2012, the Uganda Red Pepper splashed pictures of former Ugandan football manager boss allegedly having sex with a man.
The captions were designed to outrage the conservative population, with one saying: ‘MASTER AT WORK: Mubiru nails the boy’s butt.’ Another said ‘END GAME: The boy struggles to stand up after the bum shattering session.’
Due to the papers selling so well, the gay pornographic Red Pepper issue was reprinted for another two weeks.
Both men are currently in custody while police investigate the ‘incident’.
Gay sex is illegal and is punishable by up to three years in prison.
