JAMES OBIALOR CALLS ON NIGERIANS FOR HELP OVER PENDING COURT CASE
James Obialor is calling on Nigerians for help over his pending case in court.
In August 2018, the Nigerian police reported that it apprehended 57 persons suspected to be involved in homosexual activities in the Egbeda area of Lagos.
But James stood out among the other young men being paraded and shared his own side of the story. He explained that he is a dancer and not a gay. The young man also shared his HIV status and went viral for saying, ‘they didn’t caught me.’
But, one year after the incidence, the matter is yet to be resolved. In a post on his social media, James said that the court has been adjourning the case. According to him, many of the boys arrested alongside him are students who school faraway.
He stated that they have not been able to move on with their lives.
Read what James said below:
Hello masses. I’m literally calling the world, most especially Nigeria as a whole to listen to my cries. I am sure most of y’all still remember this 2018 case that made me went viral. Most of Nigerians think the case has died down but no, it hasn’t, the shiiit is still going on at the court.
They keep adjourning court date for over a year now. I need to address this, so many of the victims (us) are schooling in far places, they just have to make it to court every slated date and yet the judges are not even seeing the stress.
All these young men have dreams to chase but no way to chase it cus of this ongoing case. Majority doesn’t even know the next thing to do with their lives. We are too young for all these pressure, by the way, we never killed anyone!!!
I am tired. We are tired and it’s frustrating I swear…. I’ve always wanted to bring this up on social media since last year but lawyer didn’t let me. Now I’ve taken permission to do so… We need Nigerians to stand up for us; we don’t wish to continue this case again in next year.
In another post on James’ Instagram page, a video showing the lawyer representing the 57 young men was heard saying that no charge has been laid against the young men.
