An Abuja based G.ay named Samarola Musa has been arrested and charged to court for allegedly beaten his apprentice, Ademola Adeshina (pictured above), to death, because he fell inlove with a lady in the Lugbe area of Abuja.
Musa, who is facing a homicide charge at a Federal Capital Territory High Court, Gwagwalada, Abuja, is believed to have had a Homos€xu@l relationship with the 24-year-old man.
An autopsy indicated that Ademola died as a result of the beating he received from Musa. The report also showed that the furniture maker had sodomised his apprentice before his death in May 2017.
But Ademola’s father, Okuneye, faulted Musa’s claims, stressing that the son died from the beatings he received from the former bouncer, who he described as a huge man. He said,
“The girl said she witnessed the assault and when she confronted Musa, he injured her in the leg.
I asked if she was ready to make a statement at the police station about it and she agreed. Musa was arrested and he admitted to beating my boy because he was dating the girl.
We did a post-mortem on the body and it showed that Ademola suffered serious internal injury from the beating.
The autopsy also showed that the boy was sodomised; it was after this that we got to know that Musa is a well known Homos€xu@l in Lugbe and its environs; he had been sleeping with my son and he killed him because he was dating a woman.”
The accused was remanded in Kuje prisons by the court on Monday, while the case was adjourned till November 20, 2017.
