The 32-year-old gay pimp who was arrested alongside the 16-year-old boy he infected with HIV, is said to ebe the ringleader of a gay gang which engage in the illegal acts in Lekki. Parading the suspects before newsmen, Lagos state Police Commissioner, Imohimi Edgal, said Chinecherem used the teenager as a commercial sex worker and it was quite possible their clients have also contracted the virus.
Following the arrest of the suspects, two prominent pastors and some business executives who allegedly had canal knowledge of the minor and belonged to the illegal group, have been declared wanted by the police. Chinecherem, who gave up the identities of other members of the group including the prominent persons during the interrogation, was arrested on January 22, at Ejigbo, when the teenager was spotted sneaking out of his house in a suspicious manner.
When asked what he went to the house to do by neighbours, the bag of the teenager who didn’t give a satisfactory answer was forced open and used condoms with semen inside were found in it.
“At this point, the boy revealed that Chinecherem was his lover. The matter was immediately reported to the Police at Ejigbo and the said Chinecherem was arrested for interrogation.
After preliminary investigation, the matter was called for further enquiry by the Gender Section of the Command.
Both the suspects were taken for medical examination and the result revealed that the boy had long been introduced to homosexual act. The worst is that both of them are infected with HIV virus which causes AIDS,” Edgal said.
