The family of a young man who was stripped naked and ruthlessly beaten by a vigilante group in Nima, a suburb of Accra after confessing to being gay wants the perpetrators to be punished by the Police.
The young man was publicly flogged over the weekend with barbed wire by members of the group calling itself ‘Safety Empire’ after he confessed that he is gay.
In a video that yen.com.gh laid hands on, the young man confessed that he had invited the other gentleman to his room because he had seen that particular young man severally with another gay partner in the area.
The group that flogged the alleged gay is known for being very cruel towards suspected homosexuals in their community. They have vowed to rid the community of all homosexuals and lesbians.
The victim who suffered serious injuries as a result of the attack has since reported the matter to the Nima Police but the family contends the police are not doing much to apprehend the perpetrators of the barbaric act.
The family in an interview with an Accra- based radio station noted that they are not happy with the way the police is handling the issue.
