The Edo State Command of the Nigerian Police has announced the arrest of a man identified as Emmanuel Okon after he was reportedly caught in the act of same-sex practice with another man Osaigbovo Pullen now at large.

It will be recalled that the two secret lovers until July 5, 2023 were regular guests at a popular hotel in Edo State.

Osaigbovo Pullen and Emmanuel Okon were said to have been caught in the indecent and unlawful act by an unsuspecting hotel attendant who reported to the management.

An eye-witness at the hotel who pleaded anonymity, said the two males were caught in the act of gay practice by a room attendant who had gone to serve refreshments and was in complete shock when she heard very disturbing sounds of two males making out emanating from the room.

According to the eye-witness who curiously was unsure of what was happening, she invited the hotel manager who surprisingly walked in on the two males making out with each other in their room as they left door unlocked from the inside.

The two males, according to information made available, were ruthlessly beaten up and however dragged out by other angry people including customers in the hotel who were in complete shock to learn of the enormity of the sacrilege by the two males.

The manager, Mr. John Mark who spoke with journalists said he was informed of what was happening in one of the rooms and had to check in order to confirm the claims.

He said “I was in my office on July 5, 2023 when all of sudden one of my workers hurriedly rushed into my office to inform me about two males who had earlier checked into one of the rooms.

“She (room attendant) said strange sounds were emanating from the room of two males which suggested they were secretly indulging in the unlawful gay practice and instantly called on the police before I went straight to the room where the two males were caught in the act” John added.

It was however understood that as efforts were made to drag the two males out of their room to the reception hall one of the two males, Osaigbovo Pullen escaped through an exit door at the hotel owing to the late arrival of the police.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel Okon was however handed over to the police who joined others in combing the entire community for the fleeing Osaigbovo Pullen but to no avail.
