Police Officer Beaten And Stripped Naked By Youths In Nigeria After Allegedly Indulging In Same-Sex Acts

A police officer in Nigeria and his male partner were beaten and stripped naked by a group of young thugs after they allegedly found the couple having anal sex. From there, the couple was taken to the palace of the traditional ruler of the community of Umueze in Orlu, Local Government Area of Imo, where they were ridiculed for practicing sodomy. 

One source told ‘The Nation’: “Two Homosexuals were caught red-handed having annal sex in our village in Community, in Orlu LGA, Imo state. One of them is a Nigerian police officer from Umugboga, Amike, Orlu LGA, who stays at checkpoint, at Mgbabano, Nkwerre LGA, Imo state. He is married. The other one is a son to one photographer named Emesco. Both of them are from Orlu LGA.

“This particular police officer together with his colleagues chased a man driving with his car and threatened to shoot him if he moved any further. After discussions, they took bribe of N5000 from him and left. But This evening (Tuesday), he was caught having sex with his fellow man.

“They were caught red-handed by security men of Umueze Autonomous community, Orlu, after tracing them to where they had the sex”.

Confirming the incident, the police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu said  “On April 21, upon information received through a phone call, the Divisional Police officer in charge of Nkwere Division promptly moved into Umueze autonomous community in Orlu LGA, and rescued one F/NO.512351 Chibuike Ukazu.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the youths of the community claimed to have caught the constable with one of his friends, name yet unknown but nicknamed ‘YELLOW’, in acts of homosexuality. As a result, the youths pounced on them and beat them to stupor, then took them to the palace of the traditional ruler before their rescue by the DPO and his team.

“The command, therefore, wishes to warn members of the public to desist from taking laws into their hand by resorting to self-help especially on infractions by the members of the Police or other security agencies, all are advised to report all grievances to the nearest Police station for prompt and decisive action.

“However, investigation into the matter has commenced with a view to unravel what actually transpired and if found culpable will face the wrath of the law.”

In Nigeria being queer is considered illegal and is punishable by up to 14 years in prison and in some states in the North, death.
