Two men arrested while fighting over money in hotel after homosexual act
Two men were arrested on Wednesday by the Hisbah Command in Jigawa over alleged homosexual act in Dutse Local Government Area.
The state Hisbah Commandant, Malam Ibrahim Dahiru, who disclosed this in a statement, said the suspects, aged 32 and 20, were arrested at a hotel.
The arrest followed a report to the police by some residents after they heard the suspects arguing over money.
Disclosing the development, Dahiru said, “Today September 2, our personnel succeeded in arresting two persons in connection with an alleged homosexual act in Dutse.
“A 32-year-old man identified simply as Adamu, who resides at Unguwa Uku quarters in Kano State, invited his 20-year-old friend identified simply as Tijjani from Garkuwar Sarki quarters in Sokoto State.
“They perfected plans to meet through Facebook, after which Tijjani came down based on an agreement that he will be paid N50,000 after the act.
“They lodged at a hotel and passed the night together.”
However, a quarrel ensued over money in the morning.
“Adamu could not provide the N50,000 promised to his guest. And that was when they began to argue until people around overheard them and informed our personnel who immediately went to the scene and arrested them,” Dahiru added.
He said the suspects confessed to the crime after interrogation.
Dahiru further disclosed that the case would be transferred to the police for further investigation and possible prosecution.
