A tip-off received by Nigeria’s intelligence officers led to police raiding a suspected gay wedding ceremony on Saturday in the northern city of Sokoto – a leading centre of Islamic learning, a police spokesman Almustafa Sani has told the BBC Hausa service.

Police were conducting a thorough investigation with a view to charge the two people arrested for being involved in “unnatural” conduct, he added.

Mr Sani said homosexuality was illegal under Nigeria’s secular constitution, and Islamic law which is applied in Sokoto State.

Other people at the ceremony dispersed when police arrived at the venue, he added. (BBC)
