Nigerian lesbian flees after marrying four women – Reuters.com: marrying one woman wouldn’t be enough?

A Nigerian lesbian has gone into hiding to avoid arrest days after marrying four women in the Islamic city of Kano, local media reported on Thursday.

An estimated 2,000 guests watched Aunty Maiduguri, 45, wed the four women in a sumptuous ceremony that was followed by two days of feasting and merry-making.
But neighbors tipped off the authorities, who enforce Sharia law.

Homosexuality is also illegal under secular law in Nigeria. The government introduced a bill last year explicitly to outlaw gay marriage in response to its legalization in some Western countries.
Africa’s most populous country is split about evenly between Muslims and Christians, and both communities strongly condemn homosexuality.

What happened to the other four wives? Aren’t they lesbian too? Why didn’t the all flee together? Were they arrested? Geez, this story from Reuters seems incomplete.

    Is this posted because of our interest in lesbians, women touching each other, or theocratic politics?

    A silly post, IMHO.

  2. Reid Ellis says:

    I assume the woman was officiating two lesbian weddings, and this is what people are upset over.

  3. Angel H. Wong says:

    I bet that if these lesbians were tall, white and blonde the religious officials would have turned a blind eye to it.

    Thank you Angel.

    Eh I’d flee just because it was Africa

    Polygamous lesbians. Hmmm. What domestic policy issue(s) in the US does this remind me of?
