The Obomeng Police has apprehended some 22 people believed to be lesbians who gathered for a wedding at Kwahu in the Eastern region.
The Mpreaso Police command arrested over 22 lesbians in Obomeng a suburb in Kwahu in the Eastern region who gathered to hold a wedding ceremony over the weekend.
The report indicated that the ceremony which was held in a rented apartment 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 Traditional Council said they heard rumours that a lesbian wedding was going to be held and mobilised the security team to the location to arrest the participants.
The Police were, however, forced to grant the alleged lesbians bail due to the unavailability of a female cell at the station.
22 out of the 30 guests at the lesbian wedding were arrested while the remaining fled the scene.
