The Delta State Government has said it has discovered a homosexual centre used by young men between the ages of 16, 17 and 18 years for gay activities in Warri, the commercial nerve of the state. This was disclosed by Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan yesterday while delivering his Easter Message to Deltans at the First Baptist Church, Warri. The governor said:
“These youths who engage in criminal activities are our children. Right here in Delta State, at Enerhen Junction we just discovered that we have children between 15, 16, 17 and 18 years old who rent rooms around Enerhen Junction and at night men come out to look for them. These are boys and men come to sleep with them in their rooms. These boys called themselves ‘Yansh’.
“So they belong to a cult called Yansh. This is right in our society here. It’s through the Edu Marshals Programme that we now discovered homosexual homes right here. We used to know about female harlots but we now have male harlots. Unfortunately they are young boys. They are our children. Yes, there is not much the government can do, but there is much we can do as parents.”
Uduaghan said there was need for parents to wake to the challenges of today’s society as crime committed daily in the society are committed by children belonging to parents who are members of the immediate environment, noting that these were trying times for the country.
While urging Nigerians to stay vigilant as a result of various insecurity challenges facing the country, even as he urged Christians to use period of Easter celebration to have rethink. Uduaghan called on parents to be up and doing by monitoring the movement and activities of their children, blaming the high level of criminality in the society on inability of most parents to play their roles effectively.
While congratulating Christians on the Easter celebration, he urged them to remain faithful to the calling of Christ and be Christ like. He vowed that the state government would make the state uncomfortable for trouble makers who have come to the state with the intent of destabilising the existing peace in the state. The Presiding Pastor in charge of First Baptist Church, Warri, Rev. F Ugbede told the congregation that what makes Christianity so unique was the risen Christ who came to atone for our sins. While prayers were offered for the peace and stability of the country, the clergyman urged Nigerians to turn to God and prayerfully seek His face to overcome the various challenges facing the nation.
