Men suspected of being gay robbed, stripped and blackmailed in Ghana


Homophobes have continued their aggravated attacks on people they believe to be gay or lesbian in Ghana. This phenomenon of lawless attacks on perceived LGBTI persons has taken a new twist as LGBTI people continue to face widespread attacks and violence against them. On 5 January 5 a group of men were lured to Kasoa, a suburb of Accra (Ghana’s capital) where they were allegedly robbed of their phones, money and other valuables. In addition, they were stripped naked, videoed and photographed.
