Jonathan was formerly trapped in a lifestyle which he abhorred but found impossible to leave. It all started when as a young boy, he went to a river to swim. That night when he slept, he dreamt and saw himself swimming in the river and having sex with other men. Unbeknown to him, the innocent act of swimming in that river led to him being possessed with an evil spirit and had initiated him into male prostitution. At nights, when the evil spirit would come, he would be forced to go to the toilet to masturbate. The evil spirit gave him affection for his fellow men and he would travel to various States across Nigeria to meet men for prostitution. He would go to different hotels as a male prostitute to meet men.
He would use the internet and register on Facebook and various internet sites to chat with men and make connections with those he would later meet with physically.
The majority of men who would patronize him were older married men and also those in his age bracket. The evil spirit controlling him would initiate these men into his evil act and make money from the prostitution business which he would invest. He began to introduce other men into the same act of male prostitution and would collect commission for it. The evil spirit caused him to talk, act and dress like a woman. His hairstyle and everything about him was just like a woman. The spirit eventually gave him the deadly HIV virus and he was tested to be HIV/AIDS – Positive 1. The evil spirit led him not only to initiate other men but infect them men with HIV.
He said he had tried stopping the business of prostitution, going to various prayer houses but all to no avail. Despite all his efforts, the evil spirit continued to lead him deeper into male prostitution to the extent that he had to run away from the community he lived in for fear of his life when the people there heard he was into the act.
