A man and a woman who were having sexual intercourse in a guest house close to the Nana Bosoma Market in Sunyani on Wednesday, got stuck when the man could not remove his penis from the woman's vagina.
Eye witnesses told the GNA that the two, in their 30s, booked for "short time", but when their time was up they did not come out.
When the GNA got to the scene at 1430 hours, activities at the market had halted, as people rushed to the guest house. Some police personnel moved in, put the two inseparable lovers in a vehicle and drove them away.
An attendant at the guest house told the GNA on condition of anonymity that the two booked the room for 30 minutes but when the time elapsed they failed to come out. He said he knocked at the door but heard some unusual sound from the room and informed some traders in the market.
"When we forced the door open we saw the unexpected as the two lovers were lying on the floor in torment," the attendant said. Some of the market women said the woman was a trader from Berekum who sells soap every market day.
Some of them attributed the cause of the incident to a curse placed either on the man or the woman and added that rituals had to be performed before they could be separated.
