Six Gay Men Allegedly Arrested in Edo State

Six Gay Men Allegedly Arrested in Edo State

While Italy is granting its LGBT citizens the chance to be with their loved ones in recognized unions, back here in Nigeria, six young men accused of being homosexuals have been arrested by the Edo State police command. According to the Nation, the young men whose names were given as Festus Osagiede (24), Hyacinth Imahanrebhor (20), Itama Omon (25), Onwukwe Prince (28), Monye Chukwuma (23) and Osadebe Kelvin‎ (26), were paraded by the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 5, AIG Musa Daura at the state police command headquarters in Benin City yesterday May 12th.

According to Daura, the suspected homosexuals were arrested in different parts of the state. The AIG said leader of the homosexuals, Festus Osagiede, lured one of the suspects, Itama 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,” he said

All of them are presently being detained by the police and would soon be charged to court.

      Lol. Keredim, the former is a sin, the later an inconvenience. Only perpetrators of sins are paraded. Perpetrators of inconveniences are given fatter salaries.
      Don’t you just love this country.

    The ‘victims’ are the ones worsening their problems. Making it seem like the Osagiede guy forced them into some kind of cult rampage or something.

    I hate this country.

    “the leader of the homosexuals…”? Is this like a cult or coven with branch heads and shit? I am yet to meet the overlord of my region o.
    I’d really REALLY love to see the premise within which they worked to solve this ‘crime’ and ascertain for sure these guys were gay
