      A 29-year-old man, Uchenna Maduakor, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of homosexuality levelled against him. Maduakor was accused of having unlawful sexual intercourse with his roommate, one Veneginus Onyelu, in their one-room apartment at 5a, Ojo-Oba Street, Lagos Island.

It was learnt that Maduakor, Onyelu and two other people share the apartment. PUNCH Metro learnt that the incident happened on September 16, 2014 while they were asleep. Three of the room occupants were said to be in the room at the time of the incident.

One of the roommates was said to have gone out to urinate at about 2am, when Maduakor allegedly took advantage of his being alone with Onyelu to commit the act.
