The female captured in a sex tape in Wa who was flogged at the Wa Naa’s palace last week is nowhere to be found after the public humiliation.

Family and authorities are unable to locate the whereabouts of the young lady who has fled home after the incident.

She said to have sustained injuries in her back, buttocks and other parts of her body from the 20 lashes she received at the palace.

Family of the lady said all efforts to locate and reach her to seek medical treatment have been unsuccessful.

Assembly Member for the Sokpayiri Electoral Area Adams Abubakari, who speaks for the family, told TV3 the Social Welfare Department has been unable to locate the victim as a result as of the time of filing this report.

“I had a call from the Social Welfare Director who asked to come and see the victim and offer some support.

“Her mother revealed she did not know her whereabouts. I told her to try and reach her via phone so we arrange for the social welfare team’s visit.”

Mother of the victim, according to the assembly member, has not seen her daughter for days.

“I called the Social Welfare Office to inform them about the situation. We have not seen her for days.”

Giving further details about her health condition, the Asembly Member revealed the victim, who has now gone into hiding, has a mental health condition which she has been battling since childhood.

“As long as we get her, we would take her to the Social Welfare office for the medical care. She has been battling mental health related challenges for many many years.

“She underwent some treatment for the condition when she was young. It was, however, not successful and since then she has occasionally been acting abnormally.”

However, the victim told the media outlet that she dreads returning home to the humiliation and name-calling.

According to her, “I don’t want to go home, I am safe in this hideout. I cannot also go back to the bus terminal where I used to work, because of stigma.”

Meanwhile, the victim is still suffering from pain from last week’s flogging incident, saying she feels worse from of additional pain from an operation she had in her abdomen at childbirth, a couple of years ago.
