Ebenezer Sarfo allegedly carried out the act after warning his ex-girlfriend of his intentions to circulate the video.
Sarfo, unemployed, who is charged with non-consensual sharing of intimate images and sexual extortion, pleaded not guilty.

The prosecution said the same day, at about 3:00 pm, Sarfo sent the nude video to a friend of the complainant and a witness in the case.
It said the friend of the complainant alerted her about the video.
The prosecution said when the complainant confronted the accused person, he got infuriated and shared the nude video with his other contacts through Whatsapp platforms.
