Nigerian mob forces gay 'couple' to have sex on video
Two men were forced from their home and made to masturbate and have anal sex while a crowd of onlookers jeered in mob ‘justice’ attack
A mob forced an alleged gay couple out of their home and made them have sex while being filmed on camera phones in Nigeria.
The vigilantes are heard jeering on the explicit video as they make the two men masturbate each other and then have anal sex outside.
A large crowd of onlookers gathered to watch the men’s humiliation.
The video is reported by Nigerian sources on the ground to have come from Port Harcourt, a city with a population of almost 2million including its suburban area, in the south of the country.
It is believed it was filmed last Tuesday (28 January).
The exact details of the case – beyond what is captured on the video – are impossible to confirm.
But GSN was told the alleged couple were informed on as being homosexual.
A crowd gathered, forced them to leave the house and made them ‘re-enact’ the ‘homosexual acts’ they allegedly were carrying out in private.
The footage was then shared on social media.
It comes in the wake of the new Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act becoming law. Dubbed the Jail All The Gays law, it further criminalizes homosexuality and LGBTI people in the country.
Nigerian gay activist Bisi Alimi told GSN: ‘This law gives ordinary people the opportunity to carry mob justice out and Nigeria is known for this.
‘They don’t go to the police because they know the police will just collect money so they administer the punishment themselves but no judge has pronounced them guilty.’
GSN has seen the video but is not embedding to avoid exposing the two men to further danger and humiliation and because of its extremely explicit nature. The photo has been blurred to protect them.
