Yaw Offei, the limping character at the centre of Begoro sex tapes has vehemently denied recording and distributing the leaked tapes.
The 53-year-old photographer was arrested by the Manhyia Divisional Police Command in Kumasi on Monday when some vigilant members of the public spotted him and alerted the police.
He blamed one of his former apprentice for the recording and distributing the sex tapes.
According to him, the said apprentice sent him a text message on August 18, 2014 threatening to reveal his escapades to the public if he does not pay her off. “I quickly sent her GHC 600. I had to run away from Begoro because of the stigma,” Offei said explained.
He indicated that he had sex with the various women in his photography studio because he is a married man
Offei claimed that unknowingly, the said apprentice had been filming all his activities and “she put some of the video recordings under my door and this really scared me” At the moment.
Offei is in Police custody as preparations are underway to transfer him to the Begoro District Police Command.
His capture led to jubilations in the town with some residents arguing that would lead to a closure of the sex tape saga which rocked his family, church and the town.
Before he appears before the law, Offei would be made to appease the gods of the town. Begoro chief, Daasebere Awua Kotoko II told Adom News.
Daasebere Awua Kotoko II explained that the appeasement is a means of pacifying the land to cleanse it of the shame he brought to it through his sexual exploitation.
