Punch News reports that the venue for the initiation is at a hotel in Egbeda. Over 80 people are seated in a hall at the hotel but some got away.

The DPOs stormed the venue around 2am. On arrival, young men, numbering over 80, were met in a hall taking different types of drinks, including Tramadol and Shisha laced with substances suspected to be marijuana.


As soon as they sighted the police, they ran in different directions. However, the team arrested 57 of them.


There is something very worrisome about the arrest. Although being a gay contravenes Section 1, sub-section 1 of Same Sex Marriage Act of 2014, it is a threat to the moral fabric of our society.


Even though homosexualism is an offence, arranging elaborate initiation rites for young men as homosexuals is, to say the least, very worrisome,” Lagos State police commissioner Edgal Imohimi told Punch.
