Sixty-nine gay suspects who were apprehended on Aug. 27 in Ekpan Community, Uvwie Local Government Area (LGA) of Delta during a gay wedding ceremony, have been granted bail.
Counsel to the suspects, Ochuko Ohimor, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Warri that they were admitted to bail with the sum of N500,000 and two sureties each. According to Ohimor, the sureties must reside within the Effurun jurisdiction of the Court.
He added that the suspects must sign an undertaking at the State High Court of Justice, Effurun, in Uvwie LGA, where they were earlier arraigned on Sept. 4.
“The suspects were granted bail at a cost of N500,000 and two sureties each. The sureties must reside within the Effurun jurisdiction,” Ohimor said
Police prosecutor, Vincent Orarumen, had opposed the bail condition but their lawyer argued otherwise, saying that the alleged crime was not a capital offence.
The suspects were paraded before newsmen on Aug. 29 at the Ekpan Police Station at the instance of the Delta State Commissioner of Police (CP), Wale Abass. They were arrested by a crack team of police operatives attached to the Ekpan Division while conducting a gay wedding ceremony which they tagged, an “all white party.”
