Apart from Benue state’s continued rising figures of HIV/AIDS in the state, it is also bedevilled with the rising case of homosexuality.
This discovery was made known by the Executive Secretary of the Benue State Agency for the Control of Aids (BENSACA), Mrs. Grace Wende who revealed that the agency recently discovered a 400-member homosexuals club existing in Makurdi the Benue state capital.
According to her the organisation which goes by the name Men Sleeping with Men (MSM), has a large membership of male students from higher institutions in the state.
Mrs. Wende who made this disclosure at a one day Training of Media Practioners on HIV/AIDS in Makurdi, decried the existence of the gay club in the state acknowledging it was not helping the state government’s efforts at curbing the spread of the HIV virus in the state.
, “the club was discovered during an Epidermic appraisal carried out by our Canadian partners in colloboration with BENSACA following the state government’s resolve to fight the increasing trend of HIV/AIDs in the state as shown in 2011 survey.In fact my office is already interacting with the group of young men who  are mostly undergraduates in various higher institution of learning located in the state”. She stated.
The Executive Secretary informed that the idea of identifying with the MSM which usually holds their meetings in December in Makurdi was meant to reduce the spread of HIV virus commonly found among them.
