Nigeria`s Sharia police arrest 12 over `gay wedding`

Kano: Twelve young men were arrested in the north Nigerian city of Kano for allegedly planning a gay wedding, the Islamic law-enforcement agency, the Hisbah, said on Tuesday.

The suspects, most of them teenagers, were detained on Monday at a popular resort on the outskirts of the city, said the head of the Hisbah, Aminu Daurawa.

Homosexuality is banned under federal law in Nigeria, where last year new legislation was passed outlawing same-sex marriages and the promotion of civil unions.

      He probably won’t be able to find the cause, but I’ll bet he finds the root soon enough.

  • So when is the Nigerian government going to deal with Boko Haram?
