Cyrus Morrison aka Ebenezer Kwofie and Nana Kweku Gyasi

Pastors 'fingered' in sex scandals
Two men believed to be leaders of a syndicate
allegedly using images of sexual intercourse and
videos to force their victims to pay ransom, are
being chased by the Cyber Crime Unit of the Ghana
Police Service.

The suspects are Cyrus Morrison aka Ebenezer
Kwofie and Nana Kwaku Gyasi.

Prominent individuals, mostly pastors, are said to
be victims of this act.

The names of the two men came up when police
apprehended one of their alleged female
accomplices for purportedly demanding money from a
man of God whom she had sex with, otherwise, she
would post the photographs on the social media.

The said man of God, according to the director
in-charge of the Cyber Crime Unit, Chief
Superintendent Dr Gustav Herbert Yankson, is not
the only victim of the gang.

The lady, (name withheld by the police) is
currently in police custody assisting in
investigations while her alleged accomplices are
being hunted by the police.

Modus operandi

Dr Yankson narrated that police investigations
revealed that the syndicate’s modus operandi is to
engage a pretty lady to target prominent men in
society for a relationship.

Whenever she engages in sex with them, she videos
the sexual act without the victim’s knowledge and
later sends it to her accomplices.

He said the male accomplices will in turn send the
videos to the victim involved and threaten him
that it would be posted on the social media if the
amount being demanded was not paid to them.

For fear of being disgraced, some of the victims,
mostly married men, quickly pay the money into a
mobile money account of the suspects.

The amount charged, Dr Herbert Yankson disclosed,
often ranges from GH¢2,000 to GH¢10,000 depending
on the individual involved.

He said the police receive on average three to
four cases every week from the victims.

He claimed that police investigations had revealed
that the unscrupulous persons most of the time use
fake identities to register their mobile money
accounts, through which their ‘captives’ send the
moneys hence, making it difficult to trace them.

Further investigations also revealed that the
ladies lure some of their victims into hotel rooms
and conspire with young men of the syndicate to
enter the room whiles the ladies are in the act
with their victims.

They then take shots of the act and claim that the
lady involved is a wife of one of them and so he
(victim) should compensate the husband by paying
an agreed amount of money or they would post the
pictures on the social media.

The director in-charge of cyber crime indicated
that from some of the reports received, some of
the suspects also obtained the pictures by hacking
into the victims’ phones.

He called on the public, especially prominent men
in society, to beware of this modus operandi being
adopted by such ladies.

“It’s our advice that nude pictures must never be
shared or if necessary, extreme caution be
exercised before it’s done,” Dr Gustav Herbert
Yankson admonished.
