Some students of Tamale Technical University have said there is a pornography syndicate operating in the Nothern Region and leveraging on the vulnerabilities of women to achieve their callous aims.
A number of the students anonymously told the Daily Graphic in an interview that the members of the porn syndicate use money and expensive gifts to lure their victims.
The syndicate comprises young cyber fraudsters popularly known as “Sakawa boys” and their alleged conspirators, who are pursuing Information Technology (IT) studies in some tertiary institutions.
They operate by luring female students into relationships with the promise of marrying them, but end up taking nude pictures and videos of them to sell to pornographic sites outside the country, Graphic reports.
After they had won their hearts, they reportedly take nude pictures and videos of the students and sell them to the pornographic sites without the knowledge of their victims.
“They promise to support them complete their respective courses but end up exploiting them sexually,” the students claimed.
It will be recalled that in 2014, a resident of Tamale, based in Canada, allegedly leaked sex tapes of ladies, most of whom were students.
The tapes were later known as “The Tamale Sex Tape.”
Their circulation on social media platforms was shocking and angered residents of Tamale and Ghanaians in general.
The practice was also condemned by chiefs, opinion and religious leaders in the area.
That led to the alleged mastermind, Kamil Abu Wemah, being declared persona non grata in the metropolis.
Wemah, however, escaped prosecution when he “fled” to Canada.
