A foreign national has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly having sex with girls in the state and infecting them with HIV.

The suspect reportedly indulges in the act deliberately.

The state police spokesperson, Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the arrest to newsmen on Thursday, saying the suspect knows about his health status, yet deliberately does the act to infect as many girls as he could with the dreaded virus.

 Badmos said, “A foreign national deliberately infected some girls with HIV. He’s under detention.”

“His victims were said to be unaware of his health status until recently.

“The suspect, whose identity cannot be disclosed now as it would jeopardize investigation, would be charged to court soon.”
