Prophet in Court For Allegedly Having Gay Sex With Church Worker
A 40-year-old Prophet, Benjamin Ndubuisi, has been arrested by men of the Aba Police Area Command for having unlawful carnal knowledge of a 23-year-old man.
The prophet whose church is located at 89 Ukaegbu Road, Ogbor Hill was said to have been involved in the unwholesome act with the victim since he engaged him as a worker in his church.
No one would know about it until two weeks ago when his victim who gave his name as Ndukwe took ill. Worried by his continued deteriorating health condition, confessed to his family about the secret love affair between him and the gay prophet.
Residents of the area hinted that Ndubuisi, who is a prophet in one of the white garment churches in Ogbor Hill, engaged his victim as a worker in the church as a ploy to always have him around to satisfy his evil desires.
The gay prophet allegedly made Ndukwe swear to an oath to stop him from divulging the details of the affair between them to anyone.
Ndukwe’s parents however alerted policemen, following their son’s confession, leading to the arrest of the prophet.
The Prosecutor, Cpl. Galadima Rubies, told the court that the accused committed the offence at Ogbor Hill in Aba on July 28.
According to him, Benjamin had a carnal knowledge of a man’s son through the anus.
Rubies said the offence contravened Section 214 (1) of the Criminal Code, Laws of Abia 2005.
When the suspect was arraigned in court, he pleaded not guilty to the charge and was granted bail in the sum of N200,000 with a surety in like sum.
Magistrate K. I. Udo said the surety should be resident within the court’s jurisdiction as part of the bail conditions, and adjourned the case to September 9 for further hearing.
If found guilty, the accused may be sentenced to 14 years imprisonment.
