Three-year-old twin boys have been caught in Lagos while engaging in homosexual act, with their mother, Patience Isua, recording the act.
The video has since gone viral on the social media.
Parading Isua and the father of the boys, Emmanuel Ikanta, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said such acts will not be tolerated in the state.
Isua said she did the recording of the video so as to send it to Ikanta to see how much damage he had done to the lives of the boys.
Both live apart.
Isua told Imohimi during the parade: “Yes, I took the video myself.
“He was not around when I sent it to him.
“My children stay with me and they stay with him as well.
“He comes to pick the children to wherever he is staying.
“We have been living apart since last year that he took me to a human rights organisation.
“It was agreed that he should have 12 hours with the kids at weekends, but he did not stick to the agreement.
“Sometimes, he took them with him for many days and when they came back, they usually exhibited strange behaviours.
“I am aware that he lives with an older woman.
“So, he takes them there and whenever they are there, I get worried because I do not know what my children are going through in the hands of the woman.
“Somebody trained my boys to practice such devilish act.
“This is an abuse.
“I do not know who trained them to be like this.
“Before I saw them and videoed it, I had told their father that whenever they came back from his house they usually complained of pain.
“There were signs before it got to this stage.
“I don’t know where he takes them to and what they are fed.
“Most times they come back stooling blood or complaining of pains in their anus.
“I called his attention to it, but he didn’t listen.
“This is what has been killing me silently.
“There was a day they went to school from his house and their auntie (teacher) called me to complain that my children were stooling blood.
“I told her to report to their father because they came to school from his house.
“Then I called him the following day to ask if their auntie complained to him and he said ‘yes’.
“When I asked what they ate, he hung up.
“Another time, one of my sons while pooing, said his anus was paining him.
“I took him out of the toilet and I saw fresh wounds.
“Again I called to find out where he usually took the kids because I did not understand what was happening.
“I told him his children would come back from where he takes them to and they would sit on the chair and start saying mummy, daddy kiss.
“So, when I saw them that day, I had to video and send to him so that he would see the damage he was causing to our kids.
“He now turned the whole thing around and wants to blame me.
“Whereas, I told him to stop taking my kids where he usually took them.
“I know they picked up the habit where he usually took them to because in my house, they do not have access to television and they do not go out.
“I only take them to school and church.
“I live with my sister, who goes to work and comes back late.
“So, it is certainly not in my house that they saw such devilish act.
“I also trained them.
“I told my kids to shout and tell their daddy should anyone try to touch their private parts.
“I told them to scream ‘Satan!’”
But Ikanta denied the allegations.
He said Isua did not tell or show him anything until the day she sent the video.
He said: “I was really surprised when she sent me that video.
“I never imagined such a thing would happen.
“So, you took your time to video this without you shouting at them to stop and you said you wanted to send it to me?”
Imohimi told the couple: “This is a very serious act and as a mother you see your children and your response was to video it?
“Now apart from you videoing this what other actions did you take?
“Who did you report to?
“It is not only the police that are concerned.
“You can see we have a Child Protection Unit from the Ministry of Youth and Social Development.
“People are concerned.
“You would agree with me that these children are supposed to be under strict parental care and guidance.
“From this video, you will agree that it doesn’t show good example of parental care.
“Having discussed it with experts and also officials from the Ministry of Youth and Social Development, we are of the opinion that there is need to find out more as to what is going on regarding the welfare of the children.
“As such, we are also of the opinion that we cannot entrust these children to your care for now, until we understand exactly what is going on.
“We would entrust the children to the ministry.
“That is why they are here.
“They have shelters that are approved by the government and these shelters are purposely built for purposes such as this to ensure that children are protected by the state when the need arises.
“There is going to be a joint investigation between the police gender unit and the ministry.
“We want to be sure that nobody is abusing these children.
“We want to know where they picked up this kind of elaborate homosexual act.
“Anyone who sees this would be worried, especially because of the tenderness of the children.
“They are too young.
“We cannot entrust them to any of you.
“We intend to take this matter to a law court to determine the suitability of both of you for parenthood.”
‘Two COVID Tests In 72 Hours’, New Protocol For Nigeria As UAE Lifts Flight Ban
The Dubai Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has released a new protocol directing travellers from Nigeria to undergo COVID-19 tests upon arrival at the airport in the United Arab Emirates.
Flights between both countries have been suspended since March over issues relating to the COVID-19 protocol.
In a press release on Saturday, the middle east country said the new measure is part of its efforts to ease inbound travel restrictions.
Passengers are also expected to have taken a COVID test 48 hours before departure, and have negative results to show for it.
According to the Dubai media office, the protocol will become effective from June 23, 2021.
“Passengers must have received a negative test result for a PCR test taken within 48 hours before departure; UAE citizens exempted,” the new guideline reads.
“Passengers should present a negative PCR test certificate with a 0R Code from labs approved by the Nigerian Government.
“All passengers must undergo a PCR test on arrival at Dubai Airport.
“Transit passengers should comply with entry protocols of final destinations.”

The federal government had been in talks with the authorities of the UAE over the travel protocol put in place against Nigeria in the wake of the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In February, Emirates Airline had directed that travellers taking off from Nigeria must conduct rapid COVID-19 tests before departure, but the federal government had banned outbound Emirates flights for violating the directive of the presidential task force (PTF) on rapid antigen tests.
The ban was lifted after the airline agreed to stop the rapid antigen tests. It was later reintroduced on March 15, with the federal government explaining that the airline had continued to conduct rapid antigen tests for passengers before departure from Nigeria.
Thereafter, in March, the UAE embassy in Abuja announced a new COVID-19 travel protocol for Nigeria as part of measures to curtail the spread of the virus in the country.
Passengers who had been in or transited through South Africa or Nigeria in the last 14 days before travelling to Dubai were barred from entering the middle east country.
Arewa vs IPOB: Northern Youths Reports Irokotv App On Play Store After Google Removed Adamu Garba’s Crowwe App
After several Northern youths targeted Jason Njoku’s Irokotv app on Playstore in retribution for the removal of Adamu Garba’s Crowwe app, a Nigerian man contacted the company’s owner, Jason Njoku.
This happened just days after Google banned Adamu Garba’s Crowwe App due to a copyright infringement by the social media company.
Remember that Adamu Garba, the CEO of Crowwe App, backed the suspension of Twitter’s operations in Nigeria following the federation’s ban on the social media platform.
He also made fun of Twitter, advising Nigerians to use his own social media app instead. However, numerous Nigerians complained and gave his app negative reviews, prompting its removal.
In revenge for Crowwe’s expulsion, Northern youths have mobilized to begin reporting Igbo-owned mobile apps. Jason Njoku’s iRokoTV and Softtalk messaging are among the apps listed.
Obasanjo Contributed To Nigeria’s Crisis, He Should Mind His Utterances —– Femi Adesina
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, says former President Olusegun Obasanjo contributed to the current chaos in the country, adding that the ex-military general should mind his utterances.
He stated this on Friday in a piece titled, ‘Nigeria’s Unity And All The Iberiberism’.
Adesina wrote, “The saber-rattling about Nigeria’s unity and the possibility of disintegration has got to the point of Iberiberism (an Igbo word which could mean stupidity). Some people have no other business than doomsday predictions of a crumbled, collapsed Nigeria, as if they actually fast and pray for that eventuality.
“When Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was President between 1999 and 2007, they predicted that he was going to be the last President of a united Nigeria. It didn’t happen. When Umaru Yar’Adua came, they said he was too sick to hold Nigeria together. The country stood.
“Under Goodluck Jonathan, they said the man was too weak, and different components of the country would soon say, ‘to your tents oh Israel.’ Nigeria survived. And for six years under Muhammadu Buhari, they have not changed their songs. The Somaliasation of Nigeria was on the way. The Fulanisation of the country would be the final death knell. But Nigeria lives. It trudges on from day to day, month to month, and will surely survive.”
Adesina said though some people dwell on negativity, “some fathers of the land will not fold their hands and see Nigeria go down”.
“Fortunately, we have one of them as President now. The young Muhammadu Buhari spent 30 months in the frontlines as a young army officer, fighting the war of unity. And he has said it: we will not be around and watch Nigeria go down. Never. We will rather speak to insurrectionists in the language they understand.
“And what of Olusegun Obasanjo, a civil war hero. Despite all that he has contributed to the current upheavals by his actions and inactions, words, and bile, he says it is idiotic to wish Nigeria disintegration now. Good. But let us put our money where our mouth is. Let Baba mind his thoughts, and his language,” the presidential spokesman added.
“Nigeria will survive. The polity will endure. And the component parts will live together in amity and brotherhood. Any other option is Iberiberism,” he concluded.
Obasanjo, a military head of state from February 1976 to September 1979, was Nigeria’s democratically elected president between May 1999 and May 2007.
