The Tamale Office of Daily Guide was on Monday inundated with calls from relations of girls captured in the pornographic picture album circulating in a number of hotels within the metropolis.

The publication resulted in a mad rush at Tamale and its environs for copies of yesterday’s edition of Daily Guide so readers could catch a glimpse of the nude ladies.

For fear that the paper could release another batch of nude pictures involving some of them, their relations pleaded with Daily Guide to spike the story as the exposure was too much for them to bear.

Some of the girls, according to relations, were engaged in these illicit acts on the blind side of their parents, pleading that further publication on the matter could drag the reputation of their respective families in the mud.

Others however threatened to deal ruthlessly with the reporter if he failed to discontinue the publication to save the face of the porno girls who had been nicknamed “executive prostitutes.”

Meanwhile, some persons are threatening to beat the hell out of the said ladies, indicating that such acts constitute a bad omen on the metropolis and had the potential of incurring God’s wrath.

Daily Guide, in its Monday edition, revealed that the incidence of pornography was gaining notoriety in the Tamale metropolis with the involvement of some residents aged between 18 and 25.

Daily Guide had in its possession an album of nude ladies—known in the metropolis—whose pictures were circulating in a number of hotels within the Tamale metropolis, in their bid to attract clients.

It had also been established that the said ladies were commercial sex workers operating under the guise of being businesswomen in the city, and were always seen hovering around some notable hotels.

The picture album with various poses of the nude girls showcasing their private parts, had telephone numbers written below them.

According to Daily Guide’s investigations, the ladies had been identified as Awula, Hiba, Latifa, and Aisha whose parents were believed to be of high standing in society.

The pictures somehow found their way into the public domain and were being circulated on mobile phones and other social media networks which had resulted in two of the ladies fleeing Tamale.

A source at one of the hotels which preferred anonymity told Daily Guide that the album was always shown to customers who opted for the services of commercial sex workers.

Such clients after viewing the album, called for the services of the harlots who were believed to be charging between GH¢150 and GH¢200.

According to the source, they rendered services only to expatriates and sometimes persons they perceived to be wealthy.

Prominent Muslim leaders and scholars had condemned the practice in the region and called on the authorities to crack down on the said girls, claiming their conduct might bring curses on the entire region.

This also came in the wake of reports of the proliferation of a number of prostitution camps in the Northern regional capital despite reports of the increasing infection rate of the deadly HIV/AIDS virus. The Metropolis, which was known as a Muslim enclave and a decent area, had for the past years witnessed the proliferation of these brothels.

 

Victory Cinema was one of the popular spots where these nocturnal activities took place. When Daily Guide visited the area, it was revealed that women aged between 25 and 40 were actively engaged in the business.

It was also gathered that prominent hotels within the metropolis hired their services each time they had high ranking guests.

The hotels, it was gathered, acted as agents that were paid commissions and were believed to be undertaking the recruitment exercise for the prostitutes for sister hotels elsewhere in Ghana.
