Police officer Alpha Yahaya, who was in charge of arresting the five suspects, told the court that he visited the alleged sex party site with two Hilux vehicles and eight Operation Yaki personnel who were fully armed.
“When we arrived, we saw a crowd of more than 50 people who did not maintain social distancing, did not wear masks, did not receive hand sanitizer, many of them were half naked, drank and played loud music, that they jumped over the fence when they Noticing the presence of the police, we arrested the organizer and two DJs and took them to our station.

In a controversial statement, a second witness, Corporal Ibrahim Adamu, who was involved in the operation, said he visited the restaurant in three Hilux vehicles with 15 armed agents, but did not witness any orgies.
Adamu said that he was informed of a special operation by the officer in charge, who sent him a flyer for the aforementioned sex party on WhatsApp.
“The flyer didn’t mention any place, then another chat indicated that it would be at Asher Restaurant and Lounge. When we arrested three respondents, they wrote their statement, which I read to them, and we both signed it.
“We got there in 3 Hilux cars with 5 employees in each of the Hilux and when we got there there were no sex parties. The phone number on the flyer, when it was discovered, belonged to the wonderful Akpan, who agreed to design the flyer with his friends.
