Enugu- Enugu community has begun manhunt of a 23-year-old boy identified as Eric Onyia for allegedly engaging and recruiting other vulnerable young men into homo-sexual related activities.
Our correspondent gathered from some respondents that the neighbourhood watch group in the area, a Community Policing outfit has been on the trail of Onyia, who is believed to be the leader of a gay group.
Members of the neighbourhood watch, it was gathered are hell bent on cracking down the gay operating in the area.
According to a source, Onyia has always been seen in the company of other boys that he allegedly recruited into his gang.
The source noted that Onyia’s activities as a suspected gay were unraveled about four years ago when he was nineteen years old.
The trailing of Onyia yielded positive result as he was reportedly caught pant down with his “sweetheart”; another gay suspect simply identified as Nonso in a corner within a drinking bar where they normally meet.
Onyia was said to have escaped while they were being interrogated, but his partner; Nonso was not so lucky.
At the point of this report, Nonso is said to be in the prison custody while Onyia remains at large.
“There is news that the guy may return to the neighborhood after four years in exile.
“He was initially banned from entering the neighborhood; now, he is daring the community police at the area to arrest him.
“This now triggered the renewal of his hunt and threat to arrest him to face the law.
Meanwhile, a relation to Onyia who doesn’t want his name mentioned told our reporter that his family has suffered humiliation and verbal bullying as a result of their relation’s abominable act.
He stated that Eric Onyia is still alive but his family members are yet to confirm his new resident.
It could be recalled that the National Assembly had passed the Anti-Gay law on March 2014 and it received the assent of President Goodluck Jonathan the same month.
