The Commissioner of Police, Abia State, Anthoy Ogbizi on Thursday paraded suspected homosexual men who were arrested by Police operatives in Aba.
The suspects include: Fred Ndubuisi, Anyanwu Chidera, Kamsiriochukwu Onuaha, Anderson Emeruwa , Sampson Nwadike and Nnadi Promise.
They were reportedly arrested at City Gobal hotel Aba, at about 2am.
The police says the suspects were nabbed following a distress call from the manager of the hotel.
The statement added that the manager alleged that the suspects were seen kissing each other at the hotel bar.
It was further gathered that the manager went to the hotel room where two of the suspects had checked in earlier and discovered that they were six in the room, romancing and kissing themselves.
According to the Police report, the suspects were interrogated, and it was discovered that they were members of a gang who traveled into Aba from nearby states to practice homosexuality in hotel rooms.
The suspects however denied the crime, saying that were in Aba for the birthday party of one of their friends, Ndubuisi. They added that their families were not aware they were arrested.
Chidera, who claimed to be an undergraduate from Imo state University, Owerri, said they all stay in one room because they were told that the category of room they asked for was not available.
He said, “I arrived the hotel at about 6pm and I asked my friend to book a room for me, when I discovered that we were many in one room but he told me the hotel management said the N5, 000 rooms we could afford were not available again. So we decided to manage that one room.
“After drinking at the hotel bar, we went to the room to change our clothes for clubbing. It was at that time that we heard a knock on the door and when we opened the door, the manger started asking why we were six in the room and after explaining to him, he said they don’t allow more than three people in a room that was how he accused us of practicing homosexuality in the room, there was nothing like kissing or making love in the room and we are not gays.
The celebrant Ndubuisi, who claimed to be a hair stylist, also stated that he only invited his friends for his birthday party and lodged them in the hotel, adding that they did not indulge in any homosexual act.
“I invited my friends for my birthday and I wanted to pay for two rooms but we couldn’t because the rooms were filled up, that was why we were in one room, he said.
The Commissioner of Police, Ogbizi however said the hotel management would bring its evidence against the suspects when they would charge to Court.
