A vigilante group in Nima – a predominant Muslim community in Ghana’s capital, Accra – has flogged a man suspected to be gay.

The suspect received about 100 lashes from the vigilante group popularly known as Safety Empire. According to the group, its aim is to wage a crusade against homosexuality.

The man was whipped mercilessly when he allegedly tried to lure another resident into the controversial act.

He was found guilty based on Sharia laws, the group said in a Facebook post.

The man, who was helpless and weak in a video released by the group on social media, was undressed and whipped with belts, sticks and sharp metals. He had bruises all over his body.

The vigilante group has served notice it will sustain the attack on suspected gays to stop homosexuality in the community and Ghana as a whole.
