Police Disrupts Gay Marriage In Abuja, Arrest Suspects

A popular hotel in Jiwa Community of Abuja, King’s Land Hotel hosted two male guests who were there to celebrate their marriage, otherwise known as same-sex marriage on Saturday February 6, 2016.
The stage was already set with the hall decorated awaiting the commencement of the ceremony. At about 5.30 pm many invited guests were already seated for the occasion, with invited guests, including
their sponsors, the
chairman of the occasion and other guests in their hundreds awaiting the commencement of
the ceremony.
However just as the celebrants were emerging
from the car that conveyed them to the venue
and were about taking their seats at the high
table, men of Nigeria Police Force drafted from
the Gwagwa Police Station swooped down on
them and promptly arrested them. The suspects
who live in Jiwa Community are said to be
indigenes of Kaduna State. Eyewitnesses told our
reporter that many other persons, including their
sponsors, chairman of the occasion and the
owner of the hotel were equally arrested during
the raid.
It was also gathered that men of the Nigeria
Police Force, Gwagwa Division (AMAC) had
earlier gotten information about the marriage
that was to take place in the area, and had
therefore sent a team of plain-clothed policemen
to keep surveillance of the area. It was
gathered that the names of the two men were
given as Abdul Lawal who is supposed to be the
husband, while Umar Tahir posed as the wife.
The sponsors of the marriage according to our
findings are Abubakar Tahir and Mohammed
Sani.
Confirming the incident the Police Public
Relations Officer (PPRO) FCT Command, ASP
Anjuguri Manza told Leadership Weekend that
his men swooped into action after getting
information about the marriage.
“We got information earlier in the day that the
two men were organising a gay marriage
ceremony in Jiwa community. However our men
have to mobilise and get the suspects arrested.
At the moment the two suspects, their sponsors,
including the owner of the hotel, where the
ceremony took place have been arrested, detained
while more investigations are being conducted.
We will charge the suspects to the high court as
soon as the appropriate investigations have been
concluded on the matter,” he said.
ASP Manza however warned that the FCT Police
Command would continue to arrest and charge to
court, perpetrators of such illegal acts in any
parts of the territory where it occurs.
