Jame Brown, one of the suspects arrested by Police at a Lagos hotel for alleged homosexuality, has denied being gay. According to him, he was only at the scene to perform.
The Police had earlier in the week arrested 57 men for practicing homosexuality at Kelly Ann Hotel/ Event Centre in Egbeda, Lagos, on Sunday morning.
The police said on arrival, young men numbering about 80 were met in a hall taking different types of drinks including banned substance like Tramadol, Shisha laced with substances suspected to be Marijuana. When the men sighted the police, they took to their heels but the police arrested 57 of them.
Jame Brown told journalists during the parade that he is just a dancer and he also disclosed to the police that he is HIV positive and yet they arrested him and labelled him gay even though he was at the night club to perform.
When asked how he contacted HIV, he said that he got from birth (through his mother).
The young man said;
“I went there to work and get paid. The party was on Saturday and it is (was) meant to be overnight. I was arrested and have been denied to even take my drugs which is for medical reasons.”
James Brown also said that they were about 25 girls at the birthday venue but the police left them to arrest the guys and labelled them gays. He said he regrets the day he was born in this country.
