He was arrested on Thursday when his neighbours allegedly caught him in the act.

“We have arrested a middle-aged man for homosexual acts,” Lagos police spokesperson Muyiwa Adejobi said on Friday.
“He is allegedly a habitual homosexual. Police operatives attached to Makinde division nabbed him on Thursday in the Mafoluku area.”
