A syndicate suspected to be involved in pornographic exploitation has reportedly hit the Tamale metropolis, taking advantage of the vulnerability of some female tertiary students to exploit them.
The syndicate comprises Sakawa boys and their alleged conspirators, who are said to be operating by luring female students into relationships with the promise of marrying them, but end up taking nude pictures and videos of them to sell to pornographic sites outside the country.
Recently nude pictures and videos of two female students of the Tamale Technical University (TaTU) have since gone viral on social media.
Some students of the university, who spoke to the Daily Graphic on condition of anonymity, said members of the syndicate, realising the vulnerability of some of the female students, showered money and gifts on them.
After they had won their hearts, they took nude pictures and videos of the students and sold them to the pornographic sites without the knowledge of their victims.
“The modus operandi of members of the syndicate is that they target pretty but poor female students whom they shower cash and other goodies on to accept their proposals.
They promise to support them complete their respective courses but end up exploiting them sexually,” the students claimed.
According to them, the Sakawa boys were in league with some alleged IT students and the former often came to campus to take them out.
They confirmed that the pictures and videos on circulation were actually students of the university but refused to declare their identities.
They expressed pity and sympathy for the victims and advised other students to be wary of such men who thronged the campus to lavish goodies and monies on them.
