2 Gay Men arrested & arraigned in Ikeja after acts in SUV | Charged with Gross Indecency & Disorderly Act

Two men, who allegedly had sex inside an SUV, were on Tuesday docked at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court. The accused — Innocent, 33, and Jide, 21 – are being tried for a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy and act of gross indecency. Innocent, who claimed to be a soldier, lives in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun, while Ajayi, an unemployed, is a resident of Onipanu, Lagos.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Joseph Ajebe, told the court that the offences were committed on Jan. 18 at Ajao Road, Ikeja.

According to him, the accused were caught by an anti-crime patrol team at Ikeja. “The accused were found inside a parked Nissan SUV having anal sexual intercourse.

Jide said Innocent accosted him and told him to have sex with him, promising to give substantial amount of money and that he will also take him to the club to have a nice time. Jide agreed because he was frustrated and did not have money to fend for himself,” Ajebe said.

The offences contravened Sections 136, 166 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 136 provides three years for act of gross indecency, while Section 166 prescribes a N15, 000 fine or imprisonment for three months for disorderly act. Section 409 stipulates a two-year jail term for conspiracy. The accused, however, pleaded not guilty.

Ruling on the bail application of the accused, the Chief Magistrate, Alexander Komolafe, granted the two men bail in the sum of N100,000 each with two sureties each in like sum. Further hearing in the case has been adjourned to Mar. 7.

  • Ngozi January 26, 2016 at 7:04 pm

    Let Nigerian be please. The Western world is not the yardstick for perfection. Pick and drop is the right thing to do. When you go somewhere pick the good and leave the bad anywhere in the world. That’s how to operate, therefore let Nigeria be.

    • whocares January 26, 2016 at 8:18 pm

      @Ngozi – oh the national budget is missing but please #letNigeriabe. The senators have overseas accounts and houses; not a problem, #letNigeriabe- there are laws that violate human rights and equality, so what? #letNigeriabe, Nigerian laws do not protect women or little girls adequately – which country does so adequately? #letNigeriabe.. its ok. lol. we have heard. we will. see how little interest this post garnered? that is how much people have let Nigeria be.

      • Nahum January 26, 2016 at 11:58 pm

        Thank you!! It’s time we start fighting for the rights of ALL Nigerians and not just the rights of rich men. Women and children, homosexuals, and the poor need protection under the law. It’s either we protect the human rights of ALL Nigerians or NONE!!

  • nene January 26, 2016 at 7:18 pm

    lmao. are they too cheap to get a room?

  • Balarabe January 26, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    Well any couple found having sex in a public space should be charged with gross indecency, but I wonder if the police would have laughed it off if they were different sexes. Surely police catch straight couples going at it on the streets at night all the time and no yawa. I have a dream that one day vigilantism over same sex activities will stop.

  • Dear Dee January 26, 2016 at 7:50 pm

  • Go all the way. January 26, 2016 at 8:22 pm

    Long overdue.

    They should also close down all the same-sex nightclubs on the island and in Ikeja and anywhere else, and all the other clubs and room, spots where lewd acts (heterosexual, same-sex, bestiality, pornographic, etc) take place, whether in ‘VIP’ rooms, ‘private rooms’ , ‘private clubs’, ‘exotic lounges’, by whatever name.

    That is not life.

    There is nothing that separates/differentiates man from ordinary beasts/animals in the practice and pursuit of all those. And if people are so overtaken and so dominated and so controlled by their lusts, if they are such complete slaves to their lusts and unable to help themselves, then let the laws of the land through enforcement help to bring them back to sanity.

    • Krasavitsa January 26, 2016 at 9:10 pm

      Let’s go back to the era of slavery while we’re at it. Go all the way ko, come all the way ni. Oshisco!

      • Shandi January 26, 2016 at 11:40 pm

        Krasavitsa, please shut up. You try way too hard to force your opinions down people’s throats. Opinions differ, whether you agree with it or not, that’s how life is. You have your opinions and beliefs; people have theirs. Enough with the comments already.

      • Krasavitsa January 27, 2016 at 9:19 am

        @ Shandi. With the dropping value of Naira and oil prices, politicians looting our financial reserves dry, lassa fever victim rates on the rise, to mention just a few of the nation’s problems, one would think that Nigerians will be more concerned about how the present government wants to keep our economy afloat. But no, we’re too busy being bothered about two grown-ass niggas poking each other like as if their actions are affecting the prices of commodities in the market. If they were arrested simply because they had sex in a public place then it’s understandable. But that’ll be discrimination considering the fact that many straight people are guilty of this. And you telling me to shut up on a public forum shows you either lack manners or the deplorable state of the Nation is frustrating you. Honey if it’s the latter, I’m sending you e-hugs, be like me and don’t let it get to you.

    • Nahum January 27, 2016 at 12:01 am

      There is nothing that separates man from ordinary beasts when men cheat on their wives, sexually molest children and abuse their wives. Let’s go all the way!!! Sin na sin, na the same hell fire.

  • Cindy January 26, 2016 at 8:30 pm

    Why would you even name your child innocent? Who is ever truly innocent? What an irony?

  • fan January 26, 2016 at 8:45 pm

  • Tosin January 26, 2016 at 8:48 pm

      • Tosin January 29, 2016 at 10:02 am

        you’ve never had “” outdoors? why?
        By the grace of God, more public displays of affection in my country in 2016. Amen!

  • Ogo January 26, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    OMG! It is indecent to have sex in public be it heterosexual or homosexual! Even in the abroad where anything goes! So because our politicians are corrupt and our judicial system is some type of way, people should be having sex in public?

    • Nahum January 27, 2016 at 12:02 am

      Nobody is supporting public sex, it’s disgusting.

  • smackdown January 26, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    What happened to Innocent until proven guilty na??oooo

  • shola January 27, 2016 at 6:48 am

    Where is the 14 years jail term, these ones are trying the law of our land, whoever take part in such unnatural sexual act, should be dealt with properly, so other stay away from such act

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzz January 27, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    So because things are hard and politicians are corrupt, morality should be thrown to the dogs?

    • The Bull January 27, 2016 at 6:08 pm

      Lmaoo Nigerians only mention morality when it comes to homosexuality, the rampant corruption, cheating spouses, killing, rituals, frauds and all sorts you hardly see comments like this.
