Two gays were on Tuesday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court after they were caught having anal sex inside a jeep.
The suspects, a 33-year-old soldier, Innocent Egbuna, and Jide Ajayi, 21(file image), are facing charges of conspiracy and act of gross indecency.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Joseph Ajebe, told the court that an anti-crime patrol team caught the duo in the act on Jan. 18 at Ajao Road, Ikeja.
He said: “The accused were found inside a parked Nissan Jeep with registration no. KSF 914 AC having anal sexual intercourse. Ajayi said Egbuna 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.
“Ajayi agreed because he was frustrated and did not have money to fend for himself. The offences contravened Sections 136, 166 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.”
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty, and the Chief Magistrate, Mr. Alexander Komolafe, granted the two men bail in the sum of N100, 000 each with two sureties each in like sum.
The case has been adjourned to Mar. 7.
