Gay Kills Partner With A Screw Driver In Abuja Hotel

One Mohammed Snu, suspected to be gay, was killed by his alleged partner, Mohammed Umar, in a hotel room in Garki, Abuja.

According to Punch, the crime was carried out last Thursday, December 4, as the assaulter stabbed the victim multiple times in the ribs with a screw driver.

It is reported that Snu used to be a regular guest at the hotel and on the fateful day invited Umar for sexual intercourse. However, the situation turned violent when the victim refused to pay for the second round of sex.

A source from the hotel disclosed that the two had sex twice, but Snu did not want to pay for the second time, which caused an argument and a fight.

The source, who pleaded for anonymity, narrated how the body of the victim was discovered.

"The man had just come back from a mosque where he went for prayers with his partner when we heard a loud noise from his room and a voice saying ‘ya kuri (please, don’t be angry)’. By the time we forced the door open, we saw Umar standing naked and Snu lying dead on the bed with stab injuries on his body. We immediately called the police and Umar was arrested."

The police led the hotel manager to the station for interrogation over the incident, which generated an uproar among the residents who gathered to discuss the murder.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Peter Okechukwu, confirmed the incident, having provided however a bit different version of the tragedy.  According to him, Snu complained of pain in the ribs and invited Umar to the room.

"In the course of the massage, Snu asked Umar to undress for sex, and from there, they engaged in a scuffle leading to the stabbing of the deceased by the suspect. It was the loud noise from their room that attracted the hotel workers.

"When our men got to the hotel, we found the deceased and the suspect naked. Investigations have commenced and we will soon know what actually transpired behind the closed door."

It would be recalled that homosexual relations themselves became a crime in Nigeria, when in the beginning of this year President Goodluck Jonathan signed the anti-gay bill, which stipulates 14-year punishment for the violators.
