The police are holding in custody three young men suspected to have been involved in the gang-raping of a teenager in a video that has since gone viral.
The video caused outrage on social media with many calling on the police to fish out and arrest the actors. Three of the five boys believed to have engaged in the act are currently behind bars.
The police are yet to confirm whether they were indeed the ones in the video. Meanwhile, the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service says it has constituted a special team to “analyse the video”.
In a statement issued on Monday, the police said the team will identify and arrest those involved “for the legal processes to be activated”. It, therefore, called on persons with “any relevant information” to report to the Cyber Crime Unit of the CID for further action.
It also appealed to those in possession of the video to desist from circulating it “since it is an offence to circulate such obscene materials”.
