May 13, 2016

Nigerian police have arrested six men for the ‘crime’ of having gay sex.

Musa Daura, the Assistant Inspector General of Police, boasted to media about the arrest of the ‘gang’. They had been caught by anti-vice officials in Benin City, the Edo state capital.

He claims the six men, all in the young 20s, had ‘confessed’ to committing the ‘crime of homosexuality’ since 2006.
