Police Arrest 22 People At A Lesbian Wedding Ceremony

Can one say that the end time is near? Same-sex marriage is admitted to be practice outside Ghana but not in our country? The Obomeng Police have arrested 22 people at a lesbian wedding ceremony at Kwahu in the Eastern region

22 persons including six men have been arrested at Kwahu-Obomeng in the Eastern Region for allegedly holding a wedding ceremony between two females at a popular LGBTQI+ joint in the community.

A local journalist in the area, Okwahuhemaa Piesie Afia Pokua revealed that she had information from a source within the Kwahu-Obomeng palace around 10 pm Saturday that some persons purportedly belonging to the LGBTQI+ group were holding a ‘marriage ceremony for two ladies at the popular location in the community.

Narrating the incident, she said a pastor who couldn’t immediately be identified as a member of the group or otherwise officiated the same-sex marriage before other members of the group in the inner quarters of the house.


They then proceeded to the premises of the house for the party.

According to the journalist, the group present for same-sex marriage numbered about 50. Also, another ceremony was expected to take place at midnight.

    “I had information that some people suspected to be gays and lesbians were having a party and named the party, ‘birthday party and they had planned to have a marriage ceremony, meaning two ladies were going to get married

She said announcements from the master of ceremony during the event pointed to a planned union between two people, damning the consequences.

   During the event, I heard the MC saying “today, we have a vow to make, we’re here purposely for something whether police come or not, we go do our thing

    At about 11:45 pm, the MC said, “Oh, it’s now time for the birthday girls to come out,” she said adding that the couple soon emerged from inside the house into the open for the cutting of the bridal cake

When they came out, I saw a woman with what looked like lace made into a wedding gown with a veil, bridal fan, and bridal purse, the one acting like a man was also costumed in a Nigerian outfit. They came out of the room as a couple she narrated further.

The report indicated that the ceremony was cut short after a team of Police and traditional authorities got a hint of the event and stormed the place to stop them from going ahead with their plans.

The Police were, however, forced to grant the alleged lesbians bail due to the unavailability of a female cell at the station.


The Chief of Obomeng, Nana Effah Opinamang III said they heard rumors that a lesbian wedding was going to be held and mobilized the security team to the location to arrest the participants.

22 out of the 30 guests at the lesbian wedding were arrested while the remaining fled the scene.

This arrest comes a few weeks after there was a public outcry over an LGBTQI office that was opened in Ashongman.

The office was later closed down by National Security officials following public outrage over activities of the group.
