Naija News reports that the suspects were allegedly carrying out a gay wedding ceremony in a hotel in Delta state.
The Command in a post on its official X (formerly Twitter) handle on Tuesday, said it would parade the suspects shortly.
Reacting to the development, the movie stars condemned outrightly the arrest of the young men set to be paraded by the police for being gay.
Veteran actress, Georgina Onuoha berated the police for the arrest of the young men.
According to her, the force should hold politicians and pastors accountable for the anger and poverty ravaging the country and leave gay people alone.
She said: “Leave these people alone. They did not kill, steal or harm anyone. They are not the cause of Nigeria’s demise and predicaments. Let them live their lives.
“You that are busy committing fraud, sleeping around with married men and women, lying etc You are no better than these folks living their lives.
“Until many of you work in the medical field and understand the mechanisms behind sexual orientation, you will continue to live by the preachings of hate many con artist who call themselves pastors have poured into you as preachings.
“I laugh at the stupidity of some Nigerians who still believe that sin has categories and being “gay” is the worst of.. You are only deceiving yourself. In the eyes of God, sin is sin and many of you indulge in worst sins.
“I have a poignant question for you Nigerians, Do you think God will give you trophy if you harm or kill any of these people he created in his image and likeness? You will be hailed for committing murder? And you think God will welcome you with his open arms?
“What most of you practice is not. Christianity, you are practicing hate and bigotry. If for any reason you think this is a “western culture ” being brought to Nigeria, then you are the most ignorant of them all. Hold your politicians and pastors accountable for the anger and poverty you are facing and leave these people alone to live In Peace. This is not an endorsement of how they live their lives, rather this is about their humanity. Let them be.”
Controversial actor, Uche Maduagwu added that the arrest was unfair. “This is so Unfair”
Actress, Victoria Inyama wrote: “Parade the poor ones whilst idolising the rich ones. Make it make sense.”
