Six suspected homosexuals have been arrested by the Abia Stae Police Command after they were caught kissing and caressing at the City Global Hotel in Aba.
The state police commissioner, Anthony Ogbizi who paraded the suspects before newsmen said the hotel manager alerted the police after two of the homosexuals were found kissing and caressing themselves by the hotel bar. The room where one of them checked in was searched and revealed several others in the room doing same.
According to the police report, the suspects were interrogated and it was discovered that they were members of a gang who came into Abia from nearby states to practise the unnatural act in the hotel room.
One of them, Chidera, who is an Imo State University undergraduate, said they were all in one room because they were told that the category of room they asked for was not available.
Another suspect, 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.
The Commissioner of Police, however, said the hotel management would bring the evidence against the suspects, who, he said, would be charged to court.
