A gay couple who were fighting on the streets of Agric Forest, a suburb of Tamale in the Northern Region have been accosted by residents and handed over to the Police.
The two were fighting after their relationship broke up, infuriating one of them.
“We saw that three guys came to attack another guy at his store, one of the three guys was seen pointing a machete at the guy who was standing close to his store, issuing threats to him for breaking up with him” an eyewitness who wants to remain anonymous told Justicefmonline.com.
“He told the other guy that they were going to deal with him for what he has done” he said.
The eyewitness said on-lookers became suspicious of them and approached them.
He added that after interrogating them, one of them confessed to being gay and that the other was his partner until their break up.
Witnesses said the two identified the other two guys who had come with the aggrieved partner of being gays too.
The residents accosted the four and reported them to the Chief of Choggu.
The Chief of Choggu invited the police who later went and arrested.
The Chief, Choggu Naa Mahamadu Alhassan later told journalists his palace is ready to crack down on residents who are involved in illegal activities including homosexuality.
He said as law abiding people, all suspects will be handed over to the police for further investigations and prosecution.
