Three months after he was declared wanted, a self-acclaimed pastor, Prince Chizemdere Ezuma, has been arrested by the police in Lagos for allegedly sodomising, prostituting and infecting underage boys with the HIV virus.
The founder of Jesus Intervention Household Ministry, Ejigbo, Lagos, Chizemdere Ezuma has been arrested for allegedly sodomising, prostituting and infecting underage boys with HIV virus.
He was arrested at his residence after the police received a tip that he had resurfaced, three months after the police had declared him wanted. Upon the arrival of the police it is alleged that he hid in the ceiling, where before he was discovered and arrested.
Prince Chizemdere Ezuma was declared wanted after an alleged male prostitute, named Anthony Ikem, was caught sneaking out of Prince Chizemdere Ezuma's home with a polythene bag that contained used condoms and other items. Anthony Ikem was apprehended by Prince Chizemdere Ezuma's neighbours at which point he confessed that he was one of several sex partners of the pastor. Ikem also confirmed that the Prince Chizemdere Ezuma usually gave the boys out as sex objects to his male clients including VIPs. The teenager was taken to the hospital for checks and it was discovered he was HIV+.
It was gathered that some residents of the community were worried he was corrupting their male children and initiating them into the club, hence, their keen interest to see that he was arrested and prosecuted.
Findings revealed that Ezuma was moved to the Gender Section at the Police Command Ikeja, yesterday afternoon, following pressure from certain quarters in the division to release him.
In his confession to the police, Prince Chizemdere Ezuma claimed he usually paid the boys N2,000 for unprotected sex. Investigation showed that Prince Chizemdere Ezuma had bought approximately 15 boys into his apartment and then he forcefully penetrated them anally. Prince Chizemdere Ezuma confirmed that he is HIV+ and has been receiving treatment for over three years. Which meant he knowingly infected boys with the virus.
