What’s your thoughts on Nigeria’s anti-gay law?

Posted: January 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

President Jonathan yesterday Monday Jan. 13th reportedly signed a bill that criminalizes same-sex relationships and gay rights groups in Nigeria. The bill contains penalties of up to 14 years in prison.

Some people feel making this into law can get people unjustly killed or jailed and there are those who feel that Nigerians should be worried now because this is a homophobic country. And in all sincerity I am also worried. I hope incidences like Aluu4 doesn’t become rampant. People who are mistaken to be gay can get lynched by a mob because our government has officially made it a crime. You know how we like to take laws in our own hands and enforce jungle justice. Hopefully this doesn’t happen.

What’s your take on the new anti-gay law?
