A beautician who out of jealousy doctored and distributed the nude images of her boyfriend’s former girlfriend has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court.
This was after Chantel Nunekpeku had changed her plea from not guilty to guilty.

Chantel’s boyfriend Kayode Kalode, a music producer who held on to his plea of not guilty, would reappear on January 25.
The two are said to have photo shopped the complainant’s pictures onto somebody’s nude body.
They were variously charged with offences relating to obscenity, domestic violence, emotional and psychological trauma.
Prosecuting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Agnes Boafo said Destina Tata, the complainant resides at Awoshie in Accra whiles Chantel and Kolade who are in an amorous relationship resides at Sowutuom, a suburb of Accra.
The prosecution told the court that the complainant was an ex-girlfriend of Kalode.
According to the Prosecution, on January 23, last year, Chantel took the pictures of the complainant which she uploaded from social media and photo shopped them with somebody’s nude pictures and created the impression that the pictures were that of the complainant.

The act, according to the prosecution caused the complainant emotional and psychological trauma thereby undermining her integrity, privacy, dignity and her worth as a human being.
According to prosecution the complainant reported the case to the Police and Chantel and Kalode were arrested.
During interrogation, Chantel admitted sending photo shopped nude pictures of the complainant on to social media and that she did that out of jealousy.
