The Police were, however, forced to grant the alleged lesbians bail due to the unavailability of a female cell at the station.

The Chief of Obomeng, Nana Effah Opinamang III said they heard rumours that a lesbian wedding was going to be held and mobilised the security team to the location to arrest the participants.

22 out of the 30 guests at the lesbian wedding were arrested while the remaining fled the scene.

This arrest comes a few weeks after there was a public outcry over an LGBTQI office that was opened in Ashongman.

The office was later closed down by National Security officials following public outrage over activities of the group.
