Nigerian Court Sentences Actor to 3 Months in Jail for Engaging in Homosexual Acts

Posted on Tuesday, September 18th, 2012 at 8:11 AM

By Adeola Adeyemo

In November 2011, the Nigerian Senate passed a strict law banning same-sex marriage and public display of affection by gays and lesbians in Nigeria.

According to provisions of the bill – Same Sex Marriage (prohibition) bill 2011 – a 14-year jail term is prescribed for convicted offenders in Nigeria.

“Persons who entered into a same sex marriage contract or civil union commits an offence and are each liable on conviction to a term of 14 years imprisonment.

“Any person, who registers, operates or participates in gay clubs, societies and organization, or directly or indirectly makes public show of same-sex amorous relationships in Nigeria commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a term of 10-year imprisonment,” it said.

The bill was greeted with widespread criticism from several groups as many said the Nigerian Senate should be focusing on other more important national issues. There were also protests from Nigerians already practising same-sex romantic relationships within and outside the shores of this country.

In the first major use of the provisions of the bill, a 28 year-old actor, Bestwood Chukwuemeka was on Monday September 17, 2011 sentenced to three-month imprisonment by a Karu Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, for having sexual intercourse with another man through the anus.

Premium Times quoted him as pleading guilty to engaging in homosexual acts. “I am guilty of the charge against me. I  was under the influence of alcohol and I want the court to temper justice with mercy’’

The Police Prosecutor said the convict’s act was contrary to Section 284 of the Penal Code and that he committed the offence in August when sleeping in his bed.

Premium Times also noted that when he was first arraigned in early September, Mr. Chukwuemeka pleaded not guilty, saying, “I came back drunk from the night club and thought I was sleeping on the same bed with my girl-friend and I started romancing her.”

However, when the case was heard on Monday, the actor suddenly pleaded guilty, and was then sentenced to three-month imprisonment.

The Senior Magistrate, Nafisatu Buba, sentenced him to three-month imprisonment without an option of fine. “This would serve as warning to other youths who hide under the influence of alcohol to commit crimes,’’ she was quoted as saying.

Several questions arise here. What about the person he was supposedly having sexual intercourse with? How did the Police arrest him if he was in his bed at the said time?

I have no comments on this one. I think I’d just leave you to share your thoughts.

      how can you think a strong bodied flat chested man is your girlfriend and sleep with “him” wen he’s got balls in front that you’ll prolly touch…even in ur drunkest state you’ll know when you are touching a man or a woman

    • Daisy September 18, 2012 at 8:34 AM

      He needs rehab and prayers, if he can get drunk enough to do it with a man “mistakenly”. The author is quick to point out that the anti-gay laws were met with criticism, but failed to mention that it was met with even more applause.

    • Sugabelly September 18, 2012 at 8:37 AM

      Why does the Nigerian Judicial system insist on being barbaric and primitive? Who a human being is having sex with is nobody’s business as long as the other party is another adult consenting human being.

      The case here should be that he forcefully raped another person (i’m assuming it was rape since he said he just came and started touching the person he met on the bed) not whether it was homosexual or not.

      And if it wasn’t rape (i.e. if the person on the bed consented to his actions) then he should never have been charged to court in the first place.

      Go and arrest all the men in Northern Nigeria raping little girls in the name of marriage, no. Arrest all the pedophiles in Nigeria, no.

      It’s only homosexuals who are not harming anybody the Nigerian police know how to arrest and Nigerian judges know how to sentence.

      This country is just messed up.

      • Steph September 18, 2012 at 9:39 AM

        Very barbaric people…no light, no social amenities and they decide to focus on this bull shit.We are indeed a retrogressive and doomed country!

    • Ade September 18, 2012 at 8:51 AM

      He deserves more than that in jail, what a disgusting, sickening act. Homosexuality is a sin, period. Just the same way rapists, pedophiles, molesters should all be punished. The Nigerian judicial system also need to make new laws against these men especially in the North who rape little girls and force them into marriage. These Northern men are notorious for sleeping with little boys too. So, rape is very common in that area and it’s sad that nobody is taking it seriously.

    • mark francis of chelsea September 18, 2012 at 9:07 AM

      If he raped the man in question, then he should be locked up. If it was consensual sex between two willing adults, then they should let him go. It’s things like this that make us a third world nation. How can we be compared to the likes of Congo and Uganda? As usual Nigerian’s will conveniently call it a disgusting sin, leaving out the part that says promiscous girls should be stoned to death and men shouldn’t shave ever.

    • fabulous_guy September 18, 2012 at 9:08 AM

      If the charge is not rape then I don’t understand how sex between two consenting adults could be a crime! What a country of hypocrites! In northern nigeria, girls as little as 9 are raped and then married and no one is talking! Two men who are adults have consentual sex and its vile and criminal and disgusting? Hypocrites

      • NIRA September 18, 2012 at 10:25 AM

        Thank You!!!

    • thepainofseparation September 18, 2012 at 9:18 AM

      I find it disheartening that this is what this country has come to. Who are we to judge a man for sleeping with another man? Who are you to say it is wrong or right? People tend to forget that we are mere mortals and not God so the judgement of another human beings sexual orientation doesn’t lie with us. We should learn to be tolerant of people with different sexual orientation and quit acting like homophobic people.

      Being a homosexual shouldn’t be a crime punishable by law.

      As far as I’m concerned whether gay, bisexual or straight and as long as it is two consenting adults or individuals, love is love and a family is a family.

    • Ginika September 18, 2012 at 9:23 AM

      Send him to prision so that the inmates can abuse him even more?
      That guy will probably come out even more traumatised and damaged than he was before he went to jail.

    • tomiwa September 18, 2012 at 9:46 AM

      ALL OF YOU SAYING ARREST NORTHERN MEN THAT RAPE ARE SICK!!! SO WHAT HAPPENS TO THE ONES IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY??? HOW CAN YOU EVEN SAY ITS OKAY TO LEAVE HOMOSEXUALS? UNA NO WELL I SWEAR, THEY SHOULD BE KILLED SEF! WHAT RUBBISH?? bella, if u lyk dont post oh!

      • Sugabelly September 18, 2012 at 1:22 PM

        Because the rate of child rape in Northern Nigeria totally eclipses the rate in southern Nigeria thanks to the predominance of child marriages in the north.

        No matter the level of poverty, girls from southern Nigeria are far more likely to stay unmarried well into adulthood than girls from northern Nigeria.

        And since there is no such thing as child “marriage” and only child rape (which is what it should rightfully be called) this is why every time the topic of pedophilia in Nigeria comes up, someone invariably mentions Northern men.

        It simply can’t be avoided.

        At least not as long as a SITTING NIGERIAN SENATOR is married to / raping a child and is still being allowed to parade up and down in the National Assembly.

        • Tunmi September 18, 2012 at 7:52 PM

          I already love you Sugabelly but I love you even more for mentioning that former Zamfara State governor and Senate Minority Whip, Senator Ahmed Sani Yerima. Thank you for that!!!! No be pedophiles dem go chase, na ordinary people wey no do anything.

    • Buki September 18, 2012 at 9:54 AM

      Honestly, nigerian news articles are written without any decorum or couth. A man has been convicted of homosexual activities, yes we know what that entails and then the article goes on to say ‘through the anus’…..eh Doh! where else. What is that suppose to add the shock and awe? This article is not the only exceptions – we tend to be graphic as if they are writing for fools.

    • NIRA September 18, 2012 at 10:23 AM

      The law says if he MARRIES, or engages in PUBLIC display of affection with another man he should be punished. However, in this case, the act happened in his bedroom, so I don’t see why he should be jailed. As a Christian, I’m against homosexuality, but we should learn to detach morality from liberty and sense of duty.

    • Asmah September 18, 2012 at 10:27 AM

      well this judgement is fantastic and 4 sugar belly pls mind ur words okay be good and stop being a mess up

      Homosexuality is a sin in all ramifications. whether religion or tradition.wat about the other boy dat had sex with him was he drunk also wat happens to him.did he consent and even if he consented homosexuality should not be promoted bcos pple consent to an irritating act.weda north ot south,east or west raping homosexuality and other terrible acts should be punished.in a bid to behave freely we go beyond wat is unthinkable by disobeying God.anal sex and you exchange faeces.am abt puking

    • the patriot September 18, 2012 at 11:00 AM

      To those of u talking about the NORTH, what bring or link the north to this case or law, is’t only the northerners are in the house of assembly who passed the bill. I see no reason u people should keep talking about the north. And even in the bible should sm1 tells me where does same sex marriage is allowed. And sm of u criticising about the are calling themselves christians. what a pity ? Even in america the country u people seeing it as the civilisation leader it was recently approved not more than 5months or so. This is a disgusting act and should be stoped. We all know wat is good and wat is bad.

      1st Corinthians 6:9-10: 9″Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God”-Amen.

      • Italian Princess September 18, 2012 at 11:21 AM

        What if he doesn’t live by the rules of the Bible which you have just quoted? Why do we assume that everybody has to live their lives the way we choose to live ours?
        To all who choose to take the moral high ground, I ask… do you live diligently and dutifully by the words of “The Book” of whatever beliefs you’ve chosen?
        Should we therefore sit in judgement against the next person when we’re not without blame ourselves?

        @Ade, please, help me here… In so called moral Nigeria, how many fornicators are jailed? None. How about adulterers (Nigeria’s favorite past time)? None. Drunkards? Does Nigeria even have drunk driving laws? LOL. How many thieves and extortioners are arrested in Naija- the land of bribery? The only theives that seem get punished are the one’s who steal bread. The leaders nko? My point, dear Ade, is that if none of those people will inherit the kingdom of God, why does the law and tradition seem to only address and jail homosexuals? Why aren’t fornicators and adulterers jailed? We all know the impact that sex has had on Nigeria- shouldn’t those sinners be deterred through legal means also? Oh wait, the lawmakers are too busy fornicating.

    • Sense September 18, 2012 at 11:13 AM

      This doesn’t make much sense. The article doesn’t say anything about ‘rape’ so why is it only Bestwood Chukwuemeka that is being publicly humiliated and sentenced? secondly, na wa oh, but I would assume that what is done in the bedroom cannot be considered public na. Shey judge no sabi book ni?

    • debdara September 18, 2012 at 11:29 AM

      hi people. Homo sexuality has been prevalent in Nigeria ever since and there is nothing we can do to stop it except proper counselling. it has been reason why a lot of women file for divorce, people(mostly men) get into the act to get good jobs, money and attain big social status and even a lot of people in government especially northerners(sorry im nt being tribalistic) practice this for reasons best known to then. it is practiced man to man or man to woman so the government should not tag it as a crime except where there is no willful consent or where its a ground for divorce.

And AFRICA IS THAT PLACE WHERE WE SHOULD PRESERVE THIS! …yes there are many things that are not right so should we say because there is corruption, idiots,thieves so we should let pedophiles or himosexuality become normal?if most of you live abroad you will fight and pray to God to preserve this culture and human dignity!

    • my beat September 18, 2012 at 12:30 PM

      @ The Patriot, I quite agree with you that the North is not the only place where all these disgusting sexual practices abound.
      No matter the arguments for, homosexualism is bad, sleeping with a man like you or a woman like you? The minds of those practising it are warped. Who will give birth to a boy & will be looking forward to the day he’ll be getting married to a fellow guy, same with the lady folk? Trash has no other name but trash.
      Disgusting pls….

    • my beat September 18, 2012 at 12:44 PM

      Homosexualism/lesbianism arises from a depravity of the mind, the man does not need people to support him, he needs help for the cleansing of his mind. Is there any parent who’ll be looking forward to the day his son will bring home a fellow guy to marry or a lady doing so? Agreed that there’s so much corruption in our land, this still doesn’t make that right. Nature made differences in our body forms for sexual fulfilment, depravity makes someone of same sex sexually desirous.
      Trash has no other name but trash.
      Disgusting really…

    • Odior September 18, 2012 at 12:57 PM

      i dont understand what this article has got to do with the NORTH oh………? If u accept Homosexuality, that’s your concern, the laws of the land prohibits it. Even God frowns at it. My question is how come only one person was caught? Simple

    • ugbe September 18, 2012 at 1:51 PM

      Hello! can i get someones attention? the truth of the matter is that as christians we have to pray for everyone. No one is without sin, even the bible says that we are as a filthy rag before God that is why we ought to beg God for forgiveness at all times. The man has made his mistakes. Putting him in jail will not stop him from doing what he did. Rather the government would have had some sort of rehabilitation so that these people can be delivered. Because the lust after same sex isnt normal but a serious problem. Remember this was this same thing that made God upset in the time of Sodom and Gomorah.LET us pray: dear God, thank you for everything. Thank you for loving us even as we live in sin. please have mercy on us all. As many of us exchanging words in the process of this debate forgive us lord. Help us not to condemn one another so that we too won’t be condemned > help us to overcome just as Jesus overcame. Amen!

      We chant about how we love him and are ardent readers of His word..yet we miss the greatest commandment: LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF. You really dont need to have an Oxford degree in other to understand the bible…all you need is an open mind connected to COMMON SENSE!

    • konnie September 18, 2012 at 4:12 PM

      His bigger problem now is going home to his people. Secondly, wey the other man? Was is not consensual? Who was in the bedroom with them to know the details of the activities that may or may not have taken place?

    • clairebaby September 18, 2012 at 5:21 PM

      People pls use your brains! Obviously, the other man did not consent, because if he did, the story would not have gotten to the police, they would have had their night of passion and shut their traps about it.
      Also for those supporting homosexuality, its against our culture and everything we stand for. So just because the West supports it doesn’t mean we should join their madness.

    • Oyin September 19, 2012 at 6:12 PM

      Why are Nigerians crying about this? Oh, this is what makes us a third world country. Please, acceptance of homosexuality will not automatically make us a developed country. Naijas, think by accepting everything the west does, we are moving forward. Let’s fix our infrastructure, economy, school system first then we will no longer be seen as third world country. Homosexuality, SHOULD NOT be widely accepted in Nigeria. It’s biblically wrong for same sex to have something that is intended between a man and a woman. Apart from moral aspect of it, the medical aspect is very important. It’s known that the fastest way to get HIV/AIDS is through homosexual acts, that’s what is killing Black Americans now is HIV/AIDS because of the high rise of gay men and also down low men who sleep with both sexes. I know, it’s also due to them not protecting themselves. So, emphasis on wearing condoms in this case is much needed, just like when men sleep with women. Nigeria, is barely dealing with other medical diseases like malaria, and to have a high rise of HIV/AIDS will not be a joke. We don’t even have a good healthcare system, medical equipments to care for that. I’m sorry, America is a country of freedom, where anything goes but it’s important for the Nigerian society to stick and raise our children in a man and woman relationship. I support the law against homosexuals, only bcos it will make them keep whatever they do privately instead of flaunting it around. I know, they are gays in Nigeria, bcos homosexuality is a sin and everybody sins. My only problem is, it SHOULD NOT be widely okay in the society. If we are going to have this law, we also have to emphasize on people who commit huge crimes everyday and make sure justice is being served. It’s just for three months, he will be out soon. Can they arrest all the other criminals who do worse things than this?

    • thepainofseparation September 20, 2012 at 1:28 PM

      People have said so many hateful things in the name of religion. People have ‘cast the first stone’ all in the name of Christianity. We seem to forget that as Christians we aren’t suppose to judge a fellow human being. We aren’t suppose to say hateful words to our fellow human being. We aren’t suppose to condemn our fellow human being.
      We are suppose to love people who are ‘different’ and allow them live in peace with us.
      We are suppose to mind our business and let God do His work. He isn’t handicapable . He awesome and almighty.
      God love us all whether we are gay, bisexual or straight. What he hates is sin not the individuals committing the sin. So please lets orientate ourselves to see the good in people.
      If you are ignorant about homosexual relationships, you either educate yourself or mind your business. But to be so hateful of an act you know nothing of speaks volumes about your person.
      I have learnt to live in peace with all men and women. To me, it doesn’t matter what your sexual orientation is. Whom you chose to love is your business and I respect individual choice.

    • Oyin September 20, 2012 at 6:00 PM

      @thepainof separation

      Yes, we are suppose to love everybody but keep in mind, God is love and also a judge. So, let’s not mix everything up now. God hates sin, he loves you but doesn’t excuse the fact to continue to sin with no repentance.
      Just like a parent love his/her child, but there’s also time to scold, disagree and correct. And, just bcos you love your child doesn’t mean you will allow him/her to do whatever and not care. That’s the same with God, he has rules/standards that we that are his true followers has to follow. If we fail to, there’s consequence.
      For goodness sake, can people stop equating disagreement or holding on to one’s values as ignorance. So, bcos I don’t agree with the homosexual lifestyle, I’m ignorant? No, people who claim to be christian and think God is okay with continuity of sin are simple ignorant. If God loves us so much he will let us do anything and there won’t be good or bad. So, in the name of people trying to be tolerant of anything, there are some people out there who are still holding on to their values, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    • Oyin September 20, 2012 at 6:10 PM

      @ ladytee

      Why aren’t fornicators and adulterers jailed? because sex between a man and woman is normal, God created that. So, no logic in your argument. The problem is when done outside of marriage which is more biblical. Sex between same sex is abnormal, it’s been proven biologically and scientifically. Yes, no sin is bigger than the other but let’s be realistic here, if a boy and a girl have sex it’s okay based on human standards but when an adult has sex with a child, it’s wrong, when someone is touched or forced to have sex without their go ahead is wrong. So, at the end of the day, even ones that don’t want to go by the Bible have some type of human standard, morals they still go by. And, homosexuality falls into that category. I agree, Nigerian justice system needs to do more and not just focus on homosexuals but also focus on other important topics like rapists, pedophiles, criminals etc.

      The (((((PHENOMONEM))))) known as homosexuality/ bisexuality, begets its interpretation from those (((((EUROPEANS & ARABS)))))who murdered, enslaved, and decimated your((((( Afrikan)))) native culture and spirituality leaving it in the ALTERED state that it is today. To make sure these peoples(((((AFRIKANS))))) are fully controlled like zombies without them(((((Europeans and Arabs))))) being physically present on the African soil, the most cunning and indeed by far the most damaging action was carried out against this helpless African beings>> The supplanting of their native African spirituality with a most virile and indeed poisonous political control tool wrapped in books ((((( Bible and Quran))))) replete with their (((((European and Arab))))) images and headquartered on their(((((Europeans and Arabs))))) continents, xtianity in Rome Europe and Islam in Saudi Arabia!! Did the ancient African ancestors know about this phenomena known as homosexuality? YES! Did the ancient Africans interprete it as ((homosexuality))? NO! What was the interpretation by these ancient Africans? DOUBLE SPIRIRTED CHILDREN! How did they succeed in arriving at that divine interpretation? THE ANCIENT AFRICAN SPRITUALITY NATIVE AND UNPOLLUTED BY FORAIGNE RELIGIONS(((((XTIANITY AND ISLAM)))))! Were they ((((( double spirited Africans)))) hated/castigated/ acknowledged/ respected or revered by the ancient Africans? THEY WHERE KNOWN AS DOUBLE SPIRITED BEINGS AND SO WAS NOT ONLY AKNOWLEDGED AS SUCH BUT WHOLLY RESPECTED AND REVVERED AS GATE KEEPERS TO THE SPIRITUAL REALM FOR THE TRIBE! How did we loose this glorious interpretation and at what point? DURING THE HAENOUS CONTACT WITH EUROPEANS AND ARABS DURING THE ENSLAVEMENT AND DESTRUCTION OF THE AFRICAN PEOPLES/CONTINENT/CULTURE AND SPIRITUALITY DURING THE FALL OF THE GREATEST AFRICAN EMPIRE IN KEMET NOW KNOWN AS EGYPT IN THE BEGINGING OF THE MILLENIA ABOUT 2000YEARS AGO, RUTHLESSLY INTENSIFIED AT THE COUNSEL OF NICEA IN THE 1100 YEAR HUNDREDS, THEN SUSTAINED DURING THE STRANGLE HOLD OF EACH AFRICAN STATE DURING WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE COLONIAN ERA((((( TO BE MORE ACCURATE, THE MENTALLY ALTERING ERA OF THE AFRICAN ESSENCE AND SPRIRIT))))). Did the actor commit any crime in the eyes of his ancestors? NO! HE IS A DOUBLE SPIRITED CHILD THAT VIBRATES FEMALE ENERGY FROM THE CORE AND SO WOULD NATURALY BE ATTRACTED TO MASCULINE ENERGY! Are/ were their shining examples of Africans with these phenomenon? YES! WORRIOR QUEEN AMINA OF ZARIA, EMPEROR CHAKA ZULU, QUEEN NZINGA, WORLD CLASS AFRICAN MUSICIANS/ ATHLETES/ DOCTORS/ ETC. My God! Have we lost anything as Africans? YES! A PRICE TAG CANT BE PUT ON IT, THE REPLACEMENT OF THE NATIVE AFRICAN RELIGION WITH XTIANITY AND ISLAM BY ARABS & EUROPEANS HAVE DONE EXACTLY WHAT CANCER DOES TO THE HUMAN BODY. Oh dear! This is very sad and serious!!! >>>>>> “HINT” For those (((((Afrikans))))) who fail to dig into their past for concrete reference, their present and future are effectively forfeited!
