Odinaka Orji, 32, a driver and Nonso Ejimene, 22, an accountancy student from Ezeagu, were reportedly almost lynched by an irate mob on Saturday at Coal Camp over homosexual activities, LIB reports. Both men were taken into custody and are helping the operatives in their investigations.
According to a statement issued by the Enugu State Police Command, both men had been stripped naked before security operatives arrived at the scene and saved them.
During interrogation, Odinaka maintained that he is married but his wife had left him owing to his sexual activities, which he blamed on the devil. According to him, he had visited many pastors to cure him. He added that he was about to have intercourse with a boy staying with him in the same room. The boy identified as Sunday, a barrow pusher, ran out, shouting, which attracted the attention of the mob. He was caught and severely beaten before the Police arrived.
On his own part, Nonso claimed that he also slept with men but had stopped it, before what he described as a “satanic act” pushed him back into the act as he tried to have an intercourse with one of the boys also staying with Odinaka, identified as, Chimezie, whom he had severally threatened.
I just have one question though: “Both men were taken into custody and are helping the operatives in their investigations…” What does that mean? Like does that mean what I think it means?
