Akwasi Asare, aka ‘Festival’, was picked up by the police at his hideout at Kokoso, near Prempeh College, and is expected to face trial at a Kumasi High Court, presided over Justice Amoh Yartey, on Friday May 24.
The suspect, together with his four other accomplices, who are currently at large, reportedly make $10,000 every 30 minutes by uploading videos of their sexual escapades, via the internet, to their partners based in the United States of America.
The suspects and his collaborators are said to be close associates of Alfred Acheson, the 35-year-old man, who was widely reported to be responsible for the Bekwai Sex video released in July 2011, and had been operating in Kumasi for some time now.
According to two Kumasi-based broadcast journalists, Mallam Yahaya of Kessben FM and Nana Anokye of New Mercury Radio, whose joint investigations led to the arrest of the suspect, Akwasi Asare was picked up by the CID at a time he was having sex with one of his victims, a final year student of the Kwadaso Assemblies of God Senior High School, last week Saturday.
Investigations indicate that the suspects, in the course of sexual act with their female victims, used a webcam on their laptop to record every bit of the moment, and later upload them onto the said website, charging $10,000 for every 30 minutes of the act.
Akwasi Asare is also currently assisting the police in a manhunt for the four other accomplices.
He was remanded in prison custody at his last appearance before the court last Thursday, and is expected to re-appear on Friday May 24.
Still pictures of some scenes of the video, which have appeared on Kessben FM Breaking News Facebook wall, have already attracted several comments from viewers who are condemning the suspects for the dastardly act.
