These gay lovers probably forgot the 14-years jail term for homosexual offences in Nigeria.

They went to wed in Kaduna and now they risk going to jail.

The court sitting in Zaria began hearing the case on Monday against the defendants who have been charged with criminal conspiracy and holding an illegal gathering.

The defence lawyer, Kimi Appah said the gathering had been a birthday party held in April to honour a man who appeared in court.

He told the court that “police got wind of it, arrested them and made trumped up charges that they are trying to celebrate a gay marriage".

The man appeared in court with three other co-accused and they all pleaded not guilty.

Hearing on the matter has been adjourned till May 28.
