An homosexual man, Mohammed Umar, has murdered his gay partner, Mohammed Snu, inside a hotel room in Garki, Abuja.
Umar reportedly stabbed Snu multiple times in the ribs with a screw driver on Thursday, December 4.
The deceased, a regular guest at the hotel, was said to have invited Umar for sex, but when he refused to pay for the second round of sex, things got awry.
A source in the hotel revealed that the two men had sex twice, but Snu allegedly refused to pay for the second round, which led to a fight between them.
The source said, “The man had just come back from a mosque where he went for prayers with his partner when we heard a loud noise from his room and a voice saying ‘ya kuri (please, don’t be angry)’. By the time we forced the door open, we saw Umar standing naked and Snu lying dead on the bed with stab injuries on his body. We immediately called the police and Umar was arrested.”
Policemen from the FCT Command later came in a white pick-up van and took the corpse away, only to return later to take away the hotel manager for interrogation.
Meanwhile, the FCT Police spokesperson, Peter Okechukwu, confirmed the incident, explaining that the deceased invited the suspect to massage him in his hotel room, saying he had pains in his ribs.
He said, “In the course of the massage, Snu asked Umar to undress for sex, and from there, they engaged in a scuffle leading to the stabbing of the deceased by the suspect. It was the loud noise from their room that attracted the hotel workers.”
“When our men got to the hotel, we found the deceased and the suspect naked. Investigations have commenced and we will soon know what actually transpired behind the closed door.”
