The day Nigerians get angry over anti-gay bills like they have with child marriage legislation is when I’ll permanently move to Nigeria

A man was beaten by members of the public in Kotodayo community in Ota in western Nigeria, on August 22, 2013, for allegedly being gay. This came in the wake of a bill passed in the Nigeria’s House of Representative on May 30, 2013, which criminalises gay marriage, same-sex relationships and membership of a gay rights group.

The man, known only as Sadiq, was whisked from the scene conscious but there is no information on his current condition. »
