Man stabbed to death over allegedly gay sex

May 4, 2013

Nigeria’s media has sensationally reported the murder of Adindu Ohamara, allegedly a gay banker, who was stabbed to death by a man he picked up in Akoka, Lagos State.

Ohamara returned home with a man he picked who allegedly stabbed him at midnight and left his flat.

The victim lived in a three-bedroom flat with his elder sister, Flora and a lodger.

In their reports, Nigerian media stressed the victim was gay and according to local LGBT activists seem to have almost confused the crime with the banker’s presumed sexuality.
