    This is the type of arrest you get in A 3rd world country. If you arrest them for fighting​ that’s understandable but to arrest them base on there private life then Nigeria is truly a stupid Country.

      @yeyeperry. And so was apartheid in South Africa. The fact that something is legal does not make it morally right, or morally right because it’s illegal. If you haven’t thought about it this way, please do.

      The youths of today do not know what is coming for them in 10 to 15 years time. It get worst from generation to generation. They will sure regret it. Instead of listening to the elder that homosexulity is abnormal and not natural, you are forming white man with no culture

      A child can stand on a mountain, but he will never see what an elder see even from the bottom of the mountain.

      @authour unknown you Can’t win this argument by playing the moral card. In this scenario it’s like shooting yourself in the foot.

    @yeyeperry and people like you keep asking what is the problem with Nigeria and the problem is with you. The most advanced Country in the world have freedom for everyone to be who the want to be and love who the want to love. This type of understand help a country becomes very successful​. Israel for example is a religious Country but the don’t discriminate against Homosexuals. Every Advanced country in the world does not discriminate against gays it’s only 3rd world countries which still think very backward do discriminate against Homosexuals.
