    So it was legal up to the signing of this law, and yet they are arresting people for what happened BEFORE the law was signed? So in other words, behavior isn’t the full issue here. It’s also a crime to BE gay? Just in your own mind?

    So who are they arresting? People who told other people they were gay? People who had same sex relations before the law was signed? And under what proof, hearsay obtained under torture? Good grief.

    This is insane. I weep for all the gay people of Nigeria, and anyone else over there that gets caught by this new law.

    We can only hope that the men arrested have enough presence of mind to start naming lots and lots of names– politicians, policemen, pastors, mays, legislators, and everyone lese they can think of.

    Yes, speech or text supporting gay people is considered grounds for imprisonment. So is any physical contact that could be construed as “acting gay”. Whole football teams could be jailed for the after-game mass hug. The point is that the requirement for evidence is almost nil, leading to claims of police vs victim. There is abundant room for police to blackmail for their own profit or to discredit/eliminate those people belonging to the “wrong” party.

    That would be the best idea Ben and Nancy. When your being tortured, just name all the people currently in power. I think this is what eventually stopped the witch hunt in Salem, MA. Once people in power were accused, enough was enough.

    Or perhaps all the relatives of the officer.
