There was violence at a hotel Benin, Edo State capital, last Tuesday when a jealous gay lover caught his guy with another guy.
The gay lovers had organised a party at a hotel located around Oben, off Sapele Road, when, one of them, Ricky, found his partner romancing another man who happened to be one of the guests. A fight broke out as a result.
The gay lovers were said to have deceived residents of the area by dressing like women in order not to attract their attention.
An eyewitness said they fought with bottles and plastic chairs in the hotel room, which attracted residents who did not know they were holding a gay party.
Some of the guests had their heads broken and clothes torn.
Vanguard quoted a source in the neighbourhood as saying: “ We have been suspecting the management of this hotel for some time now because the last time, some girls suspected to be lesbians held a party here, we were shocked that no single male was in attendance.
“But today, I wanted to go and buy a drink at the hotel when a young man walked up to me at the gate and said to me that his people have taken over the place.
‘’I was shocked to notice that he was putting on tight leggings and wearing red lip stick and wig, so I left the place immediately.
“It was later in the night that we heard loud noise and saw some boys fighting over another boy, thereby attracting all in the neighbourhood.”
The boys took to their heels when policemen patrolling the area stormed the hotel, following a phone call from one of the neighbours.
It was further gathered that the police are currently quizzing the management of the hotel.
