The Kebbi State command of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria says it has arrested 25 men suspected to be homosexuals in the last one year.

This was disclosed by the Commander of the Vigilante group, Sanusi Ibrahim Geza during a press briefing on Monday, November 3, 2014 at the first anniversary of his group.

Geza declined giving further details on how the arrests were made and how they got to know that the arrested suspects were homosexuals.

Also, he did not give details on legal proceedings against them, but said they had been handed in to to the Hisbah Commission “for further action”.

The Hisbah Commission is an implementation arm of Sharia, the Islamic legal code.

Kebbi is among the northern states practicing the Sharia law Nigeria, where the most severe penalty for homosexuality is death by stoning. Nobody is yet to pay the supreme price for his sexual orientation yet.

Nigeria has placed a ban on same-sex marriage by its citizens which attracts a penalty of 14 years ail term for the offenders.

  1. Absolutely disgraceful. What right do these vermin have to go and make arrests and make others lives a misery? What business is it of anyones what they do in the privacy of their own bedroom? Another reason for the international community to think of Nigeria as a scary backwards third world country. SHAME on them.
