January 16, 2014 – Gay Club Owners Arrested In Bauchi, Nigeria – 24 Homosexuals Caught In Ibadan, Owerri & Awka

5 men had appeared in an Islamic court in Bauchi on January 6 and four had pleaded guilty under Sharia law to forming a gay club.

“They were arraigned by the Bauchi state Sharia Commission… following an allegation that they had formed a gay club and received $150,000 from the United States,” said court clerk Abdul Mohammed.

All five were remanded in custody until the next hearing on January 23, he added.

The Bauchi state Sharia Commission chief Mustapha Baba Ilela meanwhile said at least 12 people had been arrested on suspicion of breaking Sharia laws banning sodomy since the start of the year.

“All the accused were apprehended by the community, which is averse to homosexuality, and handed over to us,” he added.

“The suspects confessed to committing the act they are accused of without threat or inducement and we have the audio and written confessions.”

Dorothy Aken’ova, the executive director of the International Centre for Reproductive Health and Sexual Rights, added that the police in Bauchi had more than 160 names on a list and were planning arrests.

Since the law was signed, she said 24 people had been arrested in three southern states — 12 in Ibadan, Oyo; six in Owerri, Imo; and six in Awka, the capital of Anambra.

Most of the people arrested had previously been detained but had been re-arrested since the new law was announced, she added.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan signed a bill into law against gay marriage and civil partnerships earlier this month, despite international pressure for him to reject it.

The legislation imposes penalties of up to 14 years’ imprisonment for anyone found to have entered into such a union, while anyone found to support gay groups or clubs runs the risk of 10 years’ jail.

The law, which effectively reinforces existing bans on homosexuality in Nigeria, has been widely condemned abroad as draconian.

The United States said it was “deeply concerned” while the UN human rights commissioner, Navi Pillay, accused Nigeria of trampling over the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Gay rights activists within and outside Nigeria said the law legitimized homophobic violence and increased fears of persecution.

President Jonathan’s move has been widely accepted among evangelical Christians especially in the south.

    These are men their parents were hoping to be called granny through them,I pray Mr. president don’t give in to this under the pressure from other countries.We are known as those that do more than those that taught us.if you give in to this soon even the great grand daddy in the village will wanna try it to know how it feels.I pray the boko harams and dirty politicians will be lined up as well.we need a better Nigeria,we have what it takes to give her back her dignity not gays or lesbians.keep up the good work and arrests all agents of devils and wash the face of ma Nigeria with holy water before the leaders of tomorrow our kids plant this in their head and turn Nigeria into sodom.

    Brothers and sister, listen very carefully, the Jews talt that Jesus the messiah will come with private jet from heaven and declare that he is the messiah. the world is waiting the the Armaghedon war,antichrist and tribulation.listen, the spirit of islam is the antichrist,1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.
    they are beheading people all over the world because of their believe in christ, the muslims are creating fear and terror in every big and small city in the world today, the tribulation have been going on for years now,there is war in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and all the muslim countries, killing the number of people the prophets prophecized about in the Armaghedon war. all the prophecies concerning the coming of Jesus have been completed, every one should be ready, he will enter any moment.
    check and type this in your youtube and confirm. (Orthodox Rabbi Reveals Name of Messiah).
