The Upper West Regional Capital of Wa has been a centre of drama since Tuesday morning after two main characters in a leaked sex tape were subjected to 100 strokes of lashes.
According to residents, the two were fastened to a pole and lashed by a strong man on the orders of traditional authorities who say it is part of the recent bye-law in the area.
The young lady and the man in question are seen with both legs and hands tied to the pole in front of the Wa Naa’s Palace as they scream each time the horsewhip lands on their backs.
It is unclear how the sex tape believed to have been recorded by both leaked to the public but the footages intercepted by MyNewsGh.com reveal two horny adults who engaged in serious romance before going into the main act.
The male character is seen having his manhood sucked for minutes before penetrating the lady without a condom as she is heard moaning and groaning with ecstasy.
After several bouts of their sexual escapades, both are captured lying side by side amidst some soothing music while fondling themselves in readiness for another bout.
Residents are questioning the rationale behind their public flogging but some who back the decision of local authorities to apply the Sharia law, believe it would serve as a deterrent to others.
