Everyday for the thief, the saying goes, one day for the owner, was aptly exhibited in Benin City, Edo State, when a man, Justin Olise, was caught sleeping with five young boys in his residence.
This is in spite of the federal government’s ban on same-sex relationships, some deviants still indulge in the act.
But the suspect, 33, was exposed on Thursday as he was among 60 suspected criminals paraded by the Edo State Police Command.
Olise, who was alleged to have had unlawful carnal knowledge of the five boys, whose ages range between 10 and 15 years, was said to have lured them into his room at No. 20, Evbodaghe Street, Eyean, Benin City.
The suspect is said to have confessed to the crime.
Later in an interview, Olise told journalists that he was forced into the crime when his girlfriend disappointed him.
Parading the suspects before journalists in Benin City on Thursday, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Foluso Adebanjo explained that the suspects were arrested in connection with kidnapping, armed robbery, rape,, unlawful possession of firearms, cultism, stealing, attempted murder and forgery.
A large cache of arms and ammunition recovered from the suspects was also displayed by the police yesterday. According to Adebanjo, most of the arms and ammunition were recovered from ruthless kidnappers and armed robbers.
He warned that the state would be tough for criminals, especially those who come from other states to operate in Edo.
Adebanjo therefore, warned local criminals against colluding with outsiders even as he asked criminals to repent or leave the state.
Angered by recent deaths arising from clashes between rival cult groups in the state, the Commissioner of police warned cultists to desist from killings or they would be dealt with severely and charged with murder.
“We will go after you, all of you, no matter where you hide. These killings must stop”, he said.
Adebanjo who announced that the United States of America has removed Edo State from the list of violent-prone states, commended the clergy and the people of the state for collaborating with and giving useful information to the police and urged them to continue in that light.
