International News: Islamic police raid ‘gay wedding’ in Nigeria

Posted: Wednesday, December 21, 2022. 1:57 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Sunday, Islamic police in Nigeria raided a ‘gay wedding’ and detained 19 Muslims accusing them of attending the wedding, BBC reports.

The raid occurred after the police reportedly received a tip of it occurring in Kano, Nigeria.

The couple had not yet taken their vows and fled the area.

The community has a majority Muslim population, where an Islamic legal system operates alongside secular law.

In Nigeria, homosexual acts are illegal under both legal systems.

The Islamic police there enforces a strict moral code.

Rights groups in the nation have rallied for gay rights to be respected, but there is strong opposition since many Muslims and Christians uphold conservative religious values in the country.
