“The suspects, Awizore Amolt, Akolbila Asorwogo, Atibila Aladago and Akolbila Ben, were arrested in a police intelligence operation in the early hours of today, 13th June 2023, following a preliminary investigation into the said video,” parts of the press statement read.

The police also added that arrangements have been made for the victim to receive psychological support from a police clinical psychologist.

“Meanwhile, we are in touch with the victim and her family and arrangements have been made for a Police clinical psychologist to provide her psycho-social support,” the statement read.

It is unclear when the viral video, which captured a woman being stripped and sexually-molested by several men in the Zebilla area in Upper East Region, hit the internet.

In the video, which is in GhanaWeb’s possession, the woman is at one point half-naked, before she is completely stripped of everything she is wearing, exposing her nakedness, as some men gathered around her to beat and molest her.
