Legon boys hijack ‘ashawo’ business

Bizarre sex activities perpetrated by male students of the University of Ghana have caused police detectives to be on the alert during the night.

The Independent learnt the male sex workers make more money than their female counterpart, as their charges range between $300 and $400 per night.

Further checks by the paper revealed that these males mingle with female sex workers during the night.

“After the process, we buy drugs to suppress the pains. After all, it is rewarding and we make some cash to pay our fees and take care of ourselves,” one of the male sex workers, who pleaded anonymity, told The Independent.

Startling revelations have emerged that the male students congregate in areas such as the Accra Mall, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, High Street, Togo Embassy, East Legon and Lapaz where they attract other interested gay counterparts.

“There are men who have sex with other men as a matter of preference or practice, regardless of their sexual identity or sexual orientation and irrespective of whether they also have sex with women or not,” a police officer who pleaded anonymity has stated.

This current development goes to support The Independent’s “Ghana Tops Gay List In Africa” banner headline carried on the 12th of August, 2013.

It will be recalled that The Independent Newspaper published a story, which revealed that Ghana had been named as the African country with the most registered homosexual ‘hopefuls’ seeking expatriate partners.

In the story, certain gay hotspots in Ghana were named. Prominent on the list of gay hotspots was the University of Ghana, Legon, where gays were alleged to hangout on specific days.

Last week, reports said the Nigeria police had arrested over 32 male undergraduate students who allegedly indulged in homosexual acts, adding that those arrested upon completion of investigation might be taken to court.
