January 23, 2014 – 7 Suspected Gay Men Stoned In Bauchi State Nigeria: Sharia Court Judge & Journalists Run For Safety

7 gay suspects standing trial at the Upper Court 4 in Anguwa Jaki in Bauchi were pelted with stones and almost lynched by an angry mob.

The incident, which caused commotion in the area, happened on Wednesday around 1.44pm.

It took the intervention of security personnel to rescue the seven endangered suspects. They fired gunshots into the air and used canisters to disperse the mob.

The angry mob then hurled stones at the van carrying them as it sped dangerously back to prison. A few people sustained injuries in the fracas.

The suspects were Usman Sabo, Ibrahim Marafa, Shehu Adamu, Yusuf Adamu, Aliyu Dalhatu, Abdulmalik Tanko and Hazif Sabo Abubakar.

They are facing charges of allegedly engaging in gay activities in Bauchi State, an action that contravenes the Islamic laws which the state is operating.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Haruna Mohammed, said the suspects were arrested by the Bauchi State Shariah Commission.

The atmosphere around the court was tense as the suspects came out of the court to mount the Nigerian Prison Service Hilux van which conveyed them to court.

No sooner had they filed to mount the van than the mob started reacting by reigning abuses and pelting them with stones.

The heavily armed prison wardens had to fire gunshots to disperse the crowd.

There was pandemonium as the Sharia Judge, Yakubu Aliyu, journalists and lawyers scampered for safety.

Earlier, inside the rowdy court, counsel to the Shariah commission, Danlami Ayuba, told the court that one of the suspects, Marafa, was the principal of Government Secondary School Mainamaji.

When the case was slated for hearing of witnesses, counsel to the suspects, Abdul Musa, pleaded he was not ready and sought bail for his clients.

The presiding judge, El-Yaqub Aliyu, refused to grant the bail and adjourned till Monday, January 27, 2013.

    @Josheph Akuigbo and @lovey dovey, pls kindly stop this unwanted insinuation that they may be setup or hoodlums giving out jungle justice to gays. This satanic people lives within the community and the community people knows them. Could you Imagine one of them is a principal of a Govt Day Secondary School? why is that in the whole community its only them that were arrested.?

    When you make jungle laws in a society that does not have order, this is what u get. All we want is NO to same sex marriage …not arresting and picking up people u don’t even have proof of their sexuality.

    PLS this kind of treatment is what should be meted out to our POLITICIANS who are stealing the country blind and if you have to jail gays, then throw dem in d same cell as politicians especially the big name thieves.

    I will always condemn this law…you can never know who is or is not gay,i could set up anyone i hate to see the person rot in a cell for 14 years…Nigerian youths who have no job and are frustrated take out their aggression on anything if the law permits them…that is why gay laws are known as draconian,it permits bloodshed..

    @joy,did you ever go to school??? Because if you did you would know that anyone with encopresis or stool related problems leak out stool,for God sakes you can browse what is encopresis…why am i the only voice of reason and logic??? Are you all illiterates??? there are no ways to know if anyone is gay unless they tell you they are,it is a myth that there are any tests…even female virginity tests have been pulled down because in the 21st century..most if not all girls are either born without a hymen or the hymen disappears during progress through life due to the need for todays females to perform stretchy or running related exercise or horse-back riding…please you all should know what you are saying before you speak and please alert everyone if you lack any certificate to back-up your knowledge…

    I am shocked at what this country has turned to,it is more or less like a classroom,look at that picture showing everybody laughing…can’t you all see that people are evil? i am against what gay people do but i know it isn’t by choice to be gay…it is hard-wired in the brain…evil people want to stop an “evil” act by stoning??? have we been reduced to cave-men?! Cave-men attack anything that is perceived as a threat by stoning or physical confrontation….is there no school of thought to educate the masses? now tell me is cannibalism,jungle justice,LGBT ban,or banishment developing anything to anyone or the country??? Have a rational mind in seeing the outcome of all this,when we stop getting aide of 270 million dollars from EU,160 million from US,150 million from canada etc is it dangote that will be the country’s fund-raiser? can he pay the mony we are owing the world bank(national debt),what is the difference between these people and the people stoning the fornicating woman in the bible,two wrongs don’t make a right!

    Bullets fired into the air return with+10m/s speed and when they fall to the ground…the speed is enough to pass through a skull at one end and come out through your lumbar vertebrae…canisters or tear gas is enough to cause hyperventilative shocks that can down a fully grown man,rubber bullets can be lethal when fired repeatedly at an individual in the same location…remember that water if stagnant is like concrete if you fall high enough…the police should knoe this but they don’t…dispersing a mob doesn’t mean you should kill them or hurt them…its just to intimidate until the mob dies down….knowledge is the principal thing! logic helps you understand it and wisdom is how you use it.
