Twelve men have been arrested in the north Nigerian city of Kano for allegedly planning a “gay wedding”.
Aminu Daurawa, the head of the Islamic law-enforcement agency, Hisbah, said the individuals, many of them described as teenagers, were detained on Monday at a popular resort north of Kano.
“We have 12 men in custody, including the bride. We arrested them at the venue of a planned gay wedding,” Mr Daurawa told AFP.
“We got information of the wedding four days earlier and our men stormed the venue while the wedding was about to start.”
