Report reaching this medium last night indicates that one driver Augustine Rio Komeh (alias 30 Pounds) has been declared wanted by the Calaba Town Police Station for his alleged involvement in gay bisexual and lesbian activities contrary to the laws of this country.
Investigation revealed that on the 28th April 2018, Augustine was allegedly caught by his care taker Abu Bakar Koroma making love with his male partner Alpha Jalloh at night against our laws.
Family sources say the problem started after Augustine returned home from prison a different man.
Augustine who was known in the community as a religious individual later became a gay activist against the wish of his people and the laws governing the country.
Family sources say Augustine started practising gay related activities contrary to traditional, religious and national laws governing the country. The law forbids the practice of gay activities in the country and that any one charged to court and found guilty of gay related activities will face life imprisonment with hard labour.
Police sources say, they received an intelligence from Augustine’s care taker that he was involved in gay activities. He said the Care Taker noticed that Augustine is receiving his male partners three times a week in the house which did not go down with him (Care Taker).
Sources say the care taker who was observing the frequent visit of Augustine’s male partners to his residence reported the matter to the relevant authorities including community leaders who immediately took the necessary action to arrest and prosecute him.
Augustine was seriously manhandled by angry youths in the community on the night of the alleged incident on April 28th 2018 for violating the laws of the land. He succeeded to escape from the people after a serious clash between the youths in the two communities.
Augustine according to report jumped over the fence where he was reported to have damaged his body.
Family sources say the man later escaped to neighbouring Guinea to seek refuge after being threatened legal action and since then his whereabout remains unknown.
