Police to arraign 67 gay suspects in Delta

The 67 suspects arrested in Delta State over alleged homosexuality will be arraigned next week, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, has said.

He told City Round on Friday that investigations were being intensified to ascertain the level of involvement of each of the suspects before their arraignment.

The police spokesman affirmed that the suspects and the exhibits were in police custody.

The PPRO said the arrested suspects had been cooperating with the police in their investigations.

The Delta State Police Command on Tuesday paraded a total of 67 gay suspects arrested over alleged homosexuality at an all-night wedding reception at a popular hotel off Refinery Road in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area.

The state Commissioner of Police, Wale Abass, used the forum to warn parents to closely monitor the associations their children belonged to.

The CP, represented by the PPRO, Edafe, while stoutly condemning homosexuality in the state, said the suspects were arrested in a hotel where some suspected gay members were holding a marriage ceremony.
