Berekum Police arrest Rashida over nude video
Eighteen (18) year-old Berekum native, Rashida Mohammed, who became popular by insulting her ex-boyfriend in a video last year, was arrested today by the Berekum Police over her recent nude video.
The video which went viral on the internet has been criticised by a section of the public as one that corrupts morals. In the video, Rashida is seen naked, exposing her genitals to the camera.
Sources say Rashida ‘Black Beauty’ was on Tuesday 25th July, 2017, invited by the Berekum Police for interrogation into the publication of her naked video on social media.
In an exclusive interview with Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Dapaa of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Berekum Police Service, he confirmed the incident to Citi Showbiz.
“We picked her for an offence called publication of obscene material. You would recall that after the video there were other incidents of threats made by fans of Rashida daring people who would make comments about the video. All those events could lead to some insecurity situation and so we needed to step in quickly, pick Rashida up and then go into the matter,” he said.
According to him, per the Criminal Code of Ghana, publishing nude photos and videos constitute indecent exposure and is punishable by law.
In the meantime, Rashida has been granted bail and is expected to report again tomorrow for further investigations into who really published the video.
