Police officials attached to the “B” Division Police Station, Warri, Delta State have arrested two brothers identified as, Johnson Onoriode Efenaghor and Emmanuel Efenaghor, for allegedly engaging in homosexuality.
The suspects were reportedly arrested following a complaint by one Kelvin Williams who claimed that they sexually molested, abused and defiled him.
It was gathered that the suspects allegedly gave in to sodomy while in Lagos State. Consequently, Johnson, is the alleged principal actor who committed the act by initiating the victim into homosexuality, whereas, his brother, Emmanuel, was reportedly arrested as an accomplice.
Williams reported the incident to the police because of the way the suspects threatened his life if he disclosed the encounter to anyone.
He narrated the ordeal during an interrogative session at the police station following.
According to him, the encounter started sometime in July 2015 when Johnson approached him on his way to visit his father’s house at Odion Road, Warri, and told him that he was handsome and would like both of them to become friends.
The victim further disclosed how he passed a night at their place upon their insistence, without knowing they had ulterior motives.
Williams further said he decided to tell the police because he knew that homosexuality is an offence, adding that his grandfather is a pastor and he lives with him.
“Even when I told him that I filed for somebody’s arrest, my grandfather didn’t believe me. My grandfather is a pastor and I didn’t grow up with street life,” Williams stressed.
According to Vanguard, Johnson who is currently in detention in the police cell, admitted to have made attempt to have carnal knowledge of Williams but could not gain access due to plea by the victim to have the real fun at another rescheduled date.
He told the police that he was introduced into the act by an unidentified Jehovah Witness man who came to preach to him in Lagos State three years ago.
Johnson, however, pleaded for mercy from constituted authority, promising not to indulge in the act again.
Divisional Police Officer (DPO), “B” Division, Warri, Anietie Eyoh, is yet to confirm the arrest although a reliable source from the station confirmed the arrest and detention of the suspects, noting that they would soon be charged to court.
