 ARRESTED 42 men were arrested in Nigeria's Lagos state

A human rights crisis erupted in Nigeria this weekend when police raided a Lagos hotel and arrested 42 men for performing "homosexual acts".

Nigerian newspaper Punch reports that the police raided a hotel in Lagos State on Saturday afternoon and says the hotel was cordoned off while the investigation was carried out.

A resident of the area, who gave his name only as Tunji, said policemen from the Owode Onirin Division swooped on the suspects around 3.30 pm.

Bisi Alimi, a Nigerian LGBT rights activist, told Reuters that the "act" was receiving HIV testing, counseling, and education.

Should You Sell Liberty Global Plc Based On Current Broker Views?
Following the completion of the transaction, the director now owns 761,816 shares in the company, valued at $16,607,588.80. Diamond Hill Capital Management Inc. raised its stake in shares of Liberty Global PLC by 6.9% in the second quarter.

The African country has an influential Christian evangelical movement as well as strong support for Islamic law, both of which oppose homosexuality, reports the BBC. "About 40 of them were caught in the act", he said.

The arrest of these men would be significant in any case but, specifically in Nigeria, it could mean a 14-year jail sentence thanks to the country's long-held anti-gay beliefs. "They are in custody of the Lagos State Task Force and will be charged to court soon".

In January 2017, a comedy sketch about an anti-gay sexual assault gained moderate infamy after being viewed 875,000 times on Facebook. In April, more than 50 people were arrested for attending what authorities claimed was a gay wedding in Zaria. Reportedly, 45 of the 53 arrestees skipped bail and went into hiding after being released from jail.
