A gay suspect, Friday Okeke, arrested for allegedly having sexual intercourse with two boys in Lagos, has reportedly told the police that he enjoyed sleeping with under-aged boys than with girls.
According to Okeke, girls were irritating, especially the ‘dirty’ ones.
His arrest was confirmed in a statement by Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, yesterday.
The police spokesman said: “On July 27, 2019, at about 11.30am, the Ebute-Ero police station received complaints from two different parents (names withheld) against Okeke, 35, of 23, Kose Street, Lagos Island.
“The two complainants alleged that the suspect lured their two male children (names withheld), ages 12 and 9, into his shop at Kose Street and had unlawful carnal knowledge of them through their anus.
“The victims were taken to the General Hospital, Lagos, for medical treatment and forensic examination, while the suspect was arrested by a team of detectives led by the Ebute Ero Divisional Police Officer, Sina Olunlade.”
He said the suspect told the police in his confessional statement girls were “becoming irritating and anti-social in their appearance because of their American way of dressing while boys were original and undiluted.”
Elkana quoted the suspect as saying: “I often hear some people say that making love to boys is for ritual purposes. But, to me, it is more fun, laced with enjoyment. Though I regret introducing young boys into the homosexual world, that is the way life is drifting to.”
He added that Okeke disclosed that more and more young boys were being introduced into the homosexual club by people they trust and confide in.
