After their sex tape was released on social media, two adolescent lovers — a tricycle driver and a ticket salesperson at the Wa Central Market in the Upper West Region – each suffered 20 lashes.
After the Overlord of the Waala Traditional Area, Wa-Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, ordered their caning by several Wa youth, the teens were flogged.
On Sunday, May 29, 2022, the lady in question allegedly published the sex tape to social media.
As their actions were against the Waala Traditional Area’s conventions and traditions, the two were beaten.
The two lovers were meant to take 100 canes apiece at first, but that number was cut to 20.
After it was discovered that leaked sex tapes were on the rise among the Wa municipality’s youth, the Waala Traditional Area enacted a by-law outlawing such acts in late 2021.
The Waala Traditional Area’s Overlord has warned that anyone who releases their sex tapes or nude images will be subject to the Traditional Area’s Bye-laws.
