The police last week invaded a ceremony marking the solemnisation of a gay marriage in Jiwa community in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) of FCT and arrested the celebrants.
Leadership Weekend reports that on Saturday February 6, 2016 a popular hotel in Jiwa Community of Abuja, King’s Land Hotel hosted two male guests who were there to celebrate their same-sex marriage.
According to the reports, the stage was already set with the hall decorated awaiting the commencement of the ceremony. At about 5.30 pm many invited guests were already seated, including their sponsors, the chairman of the occasion and other guests in their hundreds, awaiting the commencement of the ceremony.
But as the celebrants emerged from the car that conveyed them to the venue and were about taking their seats at the high table, men of Nigeria Police drafted from the Gwagwa Police Station swooped on them.
The suspects who live in Jiwa Community are said to be indigenes of Kaduna State. Eyewitnesses said many other persons, including their sponsors, chairman of the occasion and the owner of the hotel were equally arrested during the raid.
