Fred Enanga revealed that upon search at the suspect’s home, suspected blood stained clothes were recovered in addition to a pair of black open sandals which were recovered from the scene.

The police spokesperson strongly condemned what he called sexually motivated crimes stressing that they are uncalled for as there is no proof on the timing of the infection and any further linkage to the victim.

“As a country, we are a lead model in the fight and awareness of HIV/AIDS, its safeguards and on positive living”, Enanga added.

Enanga said that where someone gets infected, they should know that HIV is not a death sentence or ticket because one can continue living positively and stay healthy for a lifetime stressing that such incidents therefore call for more and better counselling drives in the community.
