A group of lesbians decided to get married last weekend.
Now they are in hiding from the Islamists who want to stone them.
The BBC reported:
A Nigerian lesbian who “married” four women last weekend in Kano State has gone into hiding from the Islamic police, with her partners.
Under Sharia law, adopted in the state seven years ago, homosexuality and same-sex marriages are outlawed and considered very serious offences.
The theatre where the elaborate wedding celebration was held on Sunday has been demolished by Kano city’s authorities.
Lesbianism is also illegal under Nigeria’s national penal code.
Nigeria’s parliament is considering tightening its laws on homosexuality.
Kano’s Hisbah board, which uses volunteers to enforce Islamic law, told the BBC that the women’s marriage was “unacceptable”.
The BBC’s Bala Ibrahim in Kano says Aunty Maiduguri and her four “wives” are thought to have gone into hiding the day after they married.
All five women, who are believed to be “film actresses” in the “local home-video industry”, were born Muslims, otherwise they would not be covered by Sharia law.
All Africa has more on the Nigerian lesbians in hiding:
Already bulldozers on the order of the state government have demolished the theatre and other theaters around the vicinity.
The marriage according to a witness, took place with fanfare and concerts which lasts for two days. Her ‘spouses’ include Aisha Yola, Maryam Soba, Hadiza Single Baby and Hadiza Maiduguri who are now in hiding, as police, Hisbah and community leaders ordered that they be arrested.
