The Delta Police Command has disrupted a same-sex wedding event, arresting over 100 individuals suspected in the state.
The detainees were reportedly caught participating in what authorities claim was a same-sex wedding ceremony held at a hotel in Delta state.
In a statement shared on its official social media account, the Command revealed its intention to publicly showcase the detainees in the near future.
The statement read: “The Delta State Command has taken into custody over one hundred individuals suspected of involvement in a same-sex wedding ceremony held at a hotel. We will be broadcasting live on Facebook shortly to present the aforementioned detainees.”
In 2014, the bill prohibiting same-sex relationships and marriages received approval from Former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Individuals found guilty under this legislation may be subjected to a prison term of up to 14 years.
