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.
