The suspects

The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 5, AIG Musa Daura, had reportedly paraded the suspects on Thursday, May 12, 2016, revealing that the suspects had been arrested on May 9, 2016, by the operatives of the zonal anti-vice section.

According to the reports, Daura has listed the suspects to include: Festus Osagiede, 24, Hyacinth Imahanrebhor, 20, Itama Omon, 25, Onwukwe Prince, 28, Monye Chukwuma, 23, and Osadebe Kelvin‎, 26.

AIG Daura also revealed that the suspects have confessed to have been committing the said crime since 2006, adding that one of them, Osagiede, who is said to be the leader of the gang, had first committed the crime when he had sexual relations with the third suspect after attending a night club in Benin City, back in 2006.

Speaking with pressmen, AIG Daura said:

“After the third suspect (Itama) got drunk, Festus Osagiede took him to his house and forcefully had carnal knowledge of him.“Since then, they have been committing the crime with others at large until May, 2016, when luck ran out of them and they swooped on by zonal detectives."

Another one of the suspects, Hyacinth, reveals that he had been forced into the act by Osagiede, whom he claims also threatened to kill him if he disclosed it to anyone.

Hyacinth reveals, saying:

“It all happened late last year, when I was returning from a birthday party at night. I was unable get public transport back home.

“I met Festus on my way; he asked me why I was roaming about. I said that I could pass the night at his place. That night, he touched me. In the course shouting at him, he forcefully penetrated me and it got me sick.

“He said that if I told anybody, he knows where to find me and my family, that he would kill me.”

The AIG however, describes the crime as a disturbing trend, adding that many of the perpetrators have formed cliques‎, and that the suspects would be charged to court on Friday.

“You would agree with me that this offence is an offence against humanity and nature, an abominable act that should be condemned in every ramification by all."
