Gov’t needs to urgently act & get to the bottom of the demolition of structures on the premises of the Nigeria High Commission. It beats my imagination how such a violent & noisy destruction could occur without our Security Agents picking up the signals to avert the damage.

In Africa's most populous nation, a differing of opinions is a given. But when it comes views on homosexuality and queerness in the country, ... those of the elite take precedence. The colonial legacy in Nigeria has left the country, like many others, with a bias against non-heterosexual relations. And this has in turn been eaten up and spat out by the major religious institutions in the country.
