According to a local source who spoke to Nigerian publisher Punch Newspapers: “The gays were holding a party at the facility when trouble ensued, leading to the invitation of policemen from the Ukpo Police Division. “The suspects attempted fleeing in all directions when the policemen arrived, leading to the destruction of ceilings and other items in the hotel. “The suspects were taken to the command’s anti-cult office in Ukpo for investigation.” The number of men arrested has not yet been confirmed.
