A 23-year-old unemployed man, Ebenezer Sarfo, who shared an intimate video of his ex-girlfriend to contacts on his WhatsApp platform, has appeared before the Adentan circuit court.

Ebenezer Sarfo allegedly shared the video after warning his ex-girlfriend of the same. 

Sarfo, unemployed, has pleaded not guilty to non-consensual sharing of intimate images and sexual extortion.

The court presided over by Sedinam Awo Balokah, admitted the accused person to a GHC300,000 bail with three sureties, one to be justified.

The court also ordered him to report to the police every Wednesday. The case has been adjourned to 2 August.

The police prosecution, led by Maxwell Lanyo, said the complainant (name withheld) is a resident of Madina and the accused person is a resident of Offinso.

Lanyo said the accused person and the complainant were in a long-distance relationship, with the complainant visiting the accused sometimes.

Sarfo and the complainant “did a video call where the complainant was naked.” Lanyo states that the accused person diabolically convinced the complainant to place the camera showing her full naked body, which he recorded secretly.

The prosecution said when the relationship ended, it did not go down well with Sarfo. It said since the break-up, Sarfo had been threatening the complainant to compel her into “unwanted sexual activity because he is in possession of her nude video.”

On 28 May, the complainant was on her way to Oyibi to visit her family when she received a WhatsApp message from Sarfo, which read: “Do you know I have your nude videos? If you leave me, I will distribute it on social media.”

The prosecution said the same day, at about 3 pm, Sarfo sent the nude video to a friend of the complainant who is a witness in the case. The witness alerted the complainant about the video.

When the complainant confronted the accused person, he got infuriated and shared the nude video with his other contacts through Whatsapp.

Lanyo said on 30 May, the complainant reported the matter to the police, and the accused was arrested at Offinso and sent to the police at Oyibi.
