By Jonathan Higbee. The situation in Nigeria for its gay citizens continues to deteriorate. In early February, shortly after the African nation officially criminalized homosexuality, a suspected gay couple was forced to have sex in front of an angry mob. But late last week and over the weekend the violent mob rule intensified. In Abuja, Nigeria's capital, a mob of more than 50 people forced 14 suspected gay men to march through the streets naked last week. Once in the Gishiri neighborhood, the mob beat the men with nail-studded clubs, whips, iron bars and anything else that could be weaponized. Police joined the mob in beating the men, with one man nearly dying from the injuries he sustained. Some had broken furniture. They said they wanted to kill. They were moving around from one person's house to another.
Gossip mill — A Nigerian gossip website, revealed the identity of the young man to be one Collins Gideon, a student of Otefe Polytechnic in Delta State. Even though the picture which accompanied the malicious report showed him appearing naked and sitting in bed with another male, it did not suggest that any sexual activity whatsoever took place. To prove and establish that this is indeed a case of blackmail, the photograph did not show the face of the other person in the picture with him, as it seems to have been intentionally cut out.
Reports have just emerged from a remote part of Nigeria, that three men have been brutally assaulted and humiliated after allegedly being caught having gay sex. According to eyewitness reports, the three men from Ekwe a village close to Umuka in Njaba LGA of Imo state, were stripped naked, tied in ropes and paraded publicly by their community. They were then brutally beaten and whisked to the elder of the village, on Monday 14 January according to the daily The Premium Times. Other reports state that, in fact, four men were assaulted and a close examination of the photo seems to confirm a forth man to the left of the three pictured. The group also appealed to Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, to intervene to save the lives of the men. The two are currently facing court proceedings, if found guilty they may face up to 14 years imprisonment. Homosexuality is illegal in the federal system of Nigeria and is punished in different states in varying degrees of severity. While northern states punish same-sex acts with a minimum of 14 years imprisonment as well as a fine, and in twelve of the northern states punishments include flogging and death by stoning. Last week , the president of the Nigerian senate, David Mark, has insisted that a planned bill prohibiting same sex marriage and jailing all gay people and anyone who fails to report a homosexual to the authorities, will become law despite international pressure.

It is positively shocking. They are just really convinced they are right. I really hadn't considered a lot of the points people have brought up. Because she will think that all of a sudden she is going to hell for being human, that's mormon sexual repression. Do FaceTime with her when she gets there to drink tea. She can only get sealed to him in a Mormon temple.
