This follows her public admission of circulating the explicit material herself.
According to the Regional Crime officer, SP James Acheampong, it is an offence to circular such material and persons found to engage in the practice must be apprehended and prosecuted.
In a phone interview SP Acheampong said Nana Abena Korkor Addo will be invited through the authorities of the University of Cape Coast immediately to assist in police investigations into the matter.
Nana Abena Korkor Addo, a level 300 student of the UCC on Wednesday circulated videos of herself in suggestive positions on separate occasions which has since gone viral and raised eyebrows within the local Internet community.
She is likely to be charged with promoting obscenity.
The Criminal Code of Ghana debars anyone from publishing or offering for sale, any material that has the tendency to deprave societal morals. Any publication that is unnecessarily and improperly calculated to excite passions or corrupt those whose minds are open to such immoral influences can be held for promoting obscenity.
According the Public Relations Officer of the Accra Police Command, ASP Effia Tenge, “Obscenity also involves having in your possession, putting into circulation or publicly exhibiting obscene drawings, prints, posters, photographs or any other related obscene objects”.
“This means that downloading indecent materials and images from the internet as is often done, also amounts to a criminal offence, even though there are no plans to publish or circulate the obscene objects.
This is because downloading constitutes a pseudo- photograph (would-be). Moreover, downloading in effect is making a new copy of the original material. Also possessing a material of obscene nature amounts to a criminal offence, whether or not there is an intent to circulate it.”
