He's 28? Really....?

He’s 28? Really….?

Here’s how nigeriafilms.com reported it:

The actor said he had sex with another man under the influence of alcohol

A 28-year old actor, Bestwood Chukwuemeka, was on Monday sentenced to three-month imprisonment by a Karu Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, for having sexual intercourse with another man through the anus.

The convict, who resides at Gidan Mangoro, had pleaded guilty to having engaged in homosexual acts.

“I am guilty of the charge against me. I was under the influence of alcohol and I want the court to temper justice with mercy’’, he said.

The police prosecutor, Mohammed Umar, had told the court that the convict committed the offence in August when the complainant was sleeping in his bed.

Homosexual acts, the prosecutor said, was contrary to Section 284 of the Penal Code.

The prosecutor said since Mr. Chukwuemeka had pleaded guilty to the crime he initially denied, the court should try him summarily.

The Senior Magistrate, Nafisatu Buba, sentenced him to three-month imprisonment without an option of fine.

“This would serve as warning to other youths who hide under the influence of alcohol to commit crimes,’’ she said.

When he was first arraigned in early September, Mr. Chukwuemeka pleaded not guilty, saying, “I came back drunk from the night club and thought I was sleeping on the same bed with my girl-friend and I started romancing her.”

One thing though, isn’t that a wedding band on his finger in the picture? What has it got to do with “girlfriend”?
I’ve never heard of this actor or seen him in any movie sha, but I’d honestly feel sorry for his family and “girlfriend” if this is true.
