Gay pastor arrested attempts to molest suspect in cell

Chizemdere Ezuma , a self -acclaimed reverend arrested for sodomising and infecting a 16- year – old boy, Shedrack , with human immunodeficiency virus has created a scene in police custody .

Ezuma reportedly made overtures at a male suspect with whom he was kept in a cell at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja and attempted to molest him .

City Round learnt that the suspect, whom Ezuma wanted to sodomise last Saturday night , raised the alarm and threatened to beat him up .

One of the policemen on duty was said to have relocated Ezuma to another cell and kept an eye on him till the next morning .

“ All the policemen on duty that night were amazed when the suspect complained that the pastor wanted to molest him .

“ The suspect said the pastor was romancing his legs and when he was awake , the pastor gestured for him to come close , ” a police source told our correspondent .

The source stated that Ezuma , the founder of ‘ Jesus Intervention Household Ministry , ’ did not deny the allegation when a policeman confronted him .

“ He was taken to another cell that night and was kept under watch . He had been arraigned for sexual harassment.

“ A boy (Shedrack) whom he was sleeping with was also charged with prostitution .

The boy confessed to have slept with a lot of men in exchange for money.

“ He was remanded in a correctional home while Ezuma was remanded in prison custody , ” the source added .

However , the spokesperson for the police in the state , DSP Bala Elkana , denied that the scenario played out.

Ezuma was tracked down on March 21, 2019 , at his rented apartment on Adelaja Ojo Street in the Ikotun – Egbe area of Lagos three months after he went into hiding .

The reverend, who is said to be a member of a gay syndicate , had been declared wanted following the arrest of one Prince Chinecherem for defiling a minor .

Elkana had in a statement stated that Ezuma brought in about 15 boys into his apartment and forcefully penetrated them through the anus .

“ On further interrogation, the ‘ reverend’ revealed that he is HIV positive and had been receiving treatment for over three years.

“ One Shedrack, 16, was part of his customers and was infected with HIV around October 2018 .

He further confessed that he pays the boys N 2000 each anytime he had carnal knowledge of them , ” the statement added .

Meanwhile , neighbours of the pastor expressed shock over the incident when our correspondent visited the area on Wednesday.

A resident , who identified herself simply as Josephine , said she knew Ezuma to be an easy – going man , adding that she did not initially believe he committed the alleged crime .

She said , “ I was not around when he was arrested.

I learnt he was sleeping with young boys . I can ’ t imagine he could engage himself in such an obnoxious act .

“ In fact , many people were surprised because he was an easy – going man . We always greeted each other .

I learnt he had a church but it is not on this street . I don’ t know where it is located . ”

Ezuma ’ s next- door neighbour , who did not disclose her name to City Round , said she did not suspect the man was into the unlawful act until his arrest .

“ In this house , every tenant is on their own .

As you can see , it is a family to their flat . The only thing I knew about him is that he is called pastor and lived alone .

“ We don’ t talk to each other . I was also surprised like everyone else when the police came here to arrest him

. They said he was sleeping with boys , ” the woman said .
