A married policeman attached to Imo state police Command has been rescued by other officers from an angry mob after he was caught indulging in homosexual acts with another man in Umueze, Imo state.
Confirming the incident, the police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, said: ”On April 21, upon information received through a phone call, the Divisional Police officer in charge of Nkwere Division promptly moved into the community and rescued one F/NO.512351 Chibuike Ukazu.
During investigations, the youths claimed that they caught the constable with one of his friends, name yet unknown but nicknamed ‘YELLOW’, in acts of homosexuality.
The angry youths then pounced on them and beat them to stupor, then took them to the palace of the traditional ruler before their rescue by the DPO and his team.
