A man was arrested, charged and convicted after uploading his former girlfriend’s nude photos to Facebook, prosecutors in Ghana said.

Now, Henry Alibah, 24, was sentenced to six months in prison by the Accra District Court.

Alibah uploaded the pictures to Facebook after his girlfriend notified him that she has decided to end their two-year relationship.

“The social media platform had been used to inflict emotional and psychological pain,” the judge said at the sentencing hearing.

Alibah was charged with causing emotional or psychological abuse, and he admitted to posting the nude photos to Facebook. He also wrote “porn star” as the caption to the images.

Alibah said that he posted the photos after his girlfriend threatened to reveal secrets about him on Facebook.

Alibah has since apologized to the victim and her family.
