AIG Musa Daura, the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 5 in Edo State, has paraded six persons suspected to be practicing homosexuality who were nabbed at different parts of the state by the police.
According to The Nation, the names of the suspects were given as; Festus Osagiede (24), Hyacinth Imahanrebhor (20), Itama Omon (25), Onwukwe Prince (28), Monye Chukwuma (23) and Osadebe Kelvin (26).
The AIG said the suspects confessed that they have been practicing homosexuality since 2006, noting that Osagiede, the leader of the group, lured Omon into the act after attending a night club in 2006.
“After the third suspect (Itama) got drunk, Festus Osagiede invited him to his house and forcefully had carnal knowledge of him.
“Since then, they have been committing the crime with others at large until May, 2016, when luck ran out of them and they were swooped on by zonal detectives,” Daura said.
