100 LGBT arrested in Nigeria

23 posts in this topic

Nigerian police arrested around 100 LGBTI after the raid of a private party on Saturday (9 June).

 

The eye witness says police also used tear gas to disorient the LGBTI people. Then, using excessive force, rounded up and began arresting people. He also claims the police ‘manhandled’ and ‘beat up’ most of the attendees at the party.

Another anonymous source said police targeted ‘effeminate men and masculine women’ when making their arrests.

 

It is expected court cases will commence 25 June.

I wish it were somehow feasible to sanction the authorities of homophobic countries without damaging the people of those countries. Outsiders can't do much about this other than spread the word and hope politicians don't act blind at the injustice and call these people out. Best wishes to Nigerian LGBTQ+ activists :heart2:

As someone who is 25% Nigerian, this is heartbreaking to hear. I yearn for Africa to change their hateful & outdated views.

Oh wow this is sickening considering Nigeria is one of the more developed countries in Africa, but falls to copious amounts of corruption in the government.
