The 69 suspects who were arrested in Nigeria last month in connection with an alleged gay wedding have been released on bail. Over 200 people were arrested in a police raid at a reported same-sex wedding celebration in Nigeria’s southern Delta State in late August. Of that 200, 69 individuals were prosecuted for allegedly conducting and attending a same-sex wedding ceremony. Homosexuality, as well as same-sex marriages, is outlawed in Nigeria and can result in a punishment of up to 14 years in prison, or 10 years for accomplices. On Tuesday (19 September), a high court in Warri, Delta state ruled that those who were being held behind bars could be freed after posting a 500,000 naira (£520) bail.
