Four male National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members serving in Asaba, Delta State (names withheld) have been arraigned at an Asaba Magistrates’ Court for engaging in homosexual activities with a student.
Three of the corps members who are graduates of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State and one, a graduate of Abia State University, are carrying out their primary assignment at a co-educational school along Nnebisi road, Asaba.
The four accused persons were arraigned on a three count charge of conspiracy and procuring as well as getting hold of their victim.
The prosecutor, Inspector Kingsley Iyoha, told the court that the four accused persons conspired to commit the offence, explaining that one of them procured and got hold of the male student, took him into a room, laid him on a bed and caressed and orally sucked his manhood until the minor released sperm.
The prosecutor who said the offence was committed two weeks ago said it contravened Section 217 and 516 of the Criminal Code and Volume II Laws of Delta State, 2009.
