3 Kwadaso SDA Student-Nurses Suspended
…Over Leaked Porno Video
Three first-year students from the Kwadaso SDA Nursing and Midwifery Training College, in the Ashanti Region, found to have recorded and leaked a pornographic video material on the internet, have been rusticated.
The students, two males and one female, have been given the marching orders out of the training school for 12 months, as their punishment for their misconduct.
The disciplinary action follows admission of guilt by the students, whose names are being withheld for their own safety.
The punishment, according to authorities of the school ,is in line with the Ministry of Health’s Code of Conduct.
Though, only two individuals were sighted in the sex video, the third person is said to have leaked it after he intercepted the adult content on the phone of the lady involved.
As an additional punishment, the management of the school has also communicated to the one behind leakage of the video that, upon his return from the suspension, he will be made a day student, instead of a boarder.
The order to the students, The Anchor gathered, follows a meeting held between the Disciplinary Committee of the college and the embattled students, who are said to be first-year students.
In the 60 seconds video, which has gone viral, the two students, a lady, fair in complexion, and a dark young man, were seen with the lady lying on a bed backwards while her partner thrusts her from behind.
They naïve students recorded themselves with their faces showing.
Earlier reports had alleged, the two students committed the act on campus. But this has been disputed by the college.
According to the public relations officer (PRO) of the college, Williams Adinkra, in an interview on Kumasi-based Otec FM morning show, “Nyansapo,” said that the sex bout happened outside the school.
“We met the three students immediately after the video surfaced online and they admitted the offense, the first two persons were the ones who engaged in the sex bout and captured it in a video and said they did it while on vacation,” he told the host, Captain Koda.”
The PRO gives further insight that the video got into the public domain after the lady gave her phone to the third student for repair.
Upon coming into contact with the video, the student phone repairer tried to extort money from the female student.
Unfortunately for her, she could not provide the said GH₵5,000, following which the extortionist leaked the video.
“We were told the third person who is said to have released the video downloaded it from the girl’s phone and later demanded GH₵ 5,000 from her.
The video was subsequently released when the girl failed to provide the amount her colleague student demanded and later went viral on social media,” he said.
The PRO added: “While the three are all serving a one-year suspension, the one who released the video will be de-boardenised upon their return.”
A male student blackmailer leaked a sex recording, featuring two first-year Kwadaso SDA Nursing and Midwifery Training College students in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.
The video captured off-campus was leaked after the lady student in the video handed her phone to a colleague for repair.
After copying the video from the phone, the blackmailer demanded GHc5,000 from the lady and threatened to release the video if she did not comply.
After she failed to raise the GH₵5,000, the blackmailer released the tape on Wednesday June 23, 2023.
In the event that the two victims of the video pursue the matter in court, the blackmailer could be in serious trouble, observers say.
This is because Ghana, in 2021, approved a new law that seeks to punish persons who publish indecent images, especially of children and women online.
The law under the country’s Cyber-Security Act 2020 was an attempt to crackdown on taking and circulating or publishing of naked and sexual images of people.
Under the new law, persons who circulate naked images of others could face fines of between $5,200 and $10,000 (GH₵30,000 to GH₵60, 000).
They can also face jail term, as well, from five, 10 to 15 or 25 years.
So far, a few culprits have been jailed, including a 22-year-old phone repairer who was given 14 years’ imprisonment, after he shared nude pictures of a Lebanese woman on social media.
The young man, Solomon Doga, who was jailed in June 2022, pleaded guilty to charges of sexual extortion and non-consensual sharing of intimate images.
Despite praying for forgiveness, the court gave him 12 years on the charge of sexual extortion, then two years’ imprisonment on the charge of non-consensual sharing of intimate images.
