Report: Nigerian police arrest 21 men for ‘anal sex’

Nigeria FlagNovember 25, 2015 – Reported by the Washington Blade – Nigerian police have reportedly arrested 21 men who allegedly engaged in same-sex sexual activity. Punch, a Nigerian newspaper, on Monday reported that police in the city of Asaba in Delta State arrested the men who were identified as students at two government-run colleges. The publication did not report when the arrests took place, but it described the colleges as “a beehive of perverse sexual acts.” “We had it on good authority that the male students allegedly engaged in anal sex,” Celestina Kalu, a spokesperson for the Delta State Police, told Punch. “The suspects, upon interrogation, made useful statements to the police while investigations are ongoing.” The Delta State Police did not return the Washington Blade’s request for comment. The reported arrests coincide with reports that police in Lagos State arrested two teenagers who were “having homosexual sex.” Bisi Alimi, a gay Nigerian advocate who received asylum in the U.K. in 2008, told the Blade on Monday that police in Borno State over the last three weeks “have been arresting innocent citizens on the allegation of homosexuality.”…story continues below…
