Rod McCollum tips us to the above article from Nigeria’s Daily Sun. Things are lot worse, however, than a mere pending ban on same-sex marriage, violators of which would face 14 years of imprisonment.
Sub-sections 2 and 3 also stipulate fines for any person who either operates or participates in gay marriages as well as spell out punishment and fines for witnesses. “Any person who registers, operates or participates in gay clubs, societies and organisations or directly or indirectly make public show of same sex amorous relationship in Nigeria commits an offence and shall each be liable on conviction to a term of 10 years in prison.”
In some parts of Nigeria controlled by Islamic fundamentalists, gay sex is already technically punishable by stoning to death, although no such executions have been reported. Visit Rod 2.0 for much more.
