There was chaos in Egbe, in the Ikotun area of Lagos State, when some homosexuals allegedly fought one another after contracting the Human Immunodefeciency Virus.
Newsmen gathered that one of the men, identified as Ezeugo, infected his first lover with the virus.
Ezeugo had reportedly brought in another boyfriend to the house and was about to make love to him when the first boyfriend raised the alarm around 3am on Tuesday.
A police source said the prime suspect, Ezeugo, confessed to have been a homosexual for about five years.
He said, the police got a distress call from residents around 3am that there was a fight among five homosexuals living together in a room apartment.
On getting there, the police was told that late that night, the neighbours heard a noise and thought a thief had broken into the house. But they later discovered that the noise came from the room where the men stayed and that they were fighting.
The tenant who accommodated the others, Ezeugo, had gone out to bring a new gay partner and was about to sleep with him when his first lover protested that he could not be sleeping with him and his tribesman from Calabar, Cross River State.
Ezeugo denied that he wanted to sleep with the new person.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said the suspects fought after they discovered that they had been infected with HIV.
Oti identified the men, whose ages ranged from 20 to 31, as Ezeugo, Akachukwu, Abuchi, Dara and Marvellous.
