    Gay Nigerian Men Beaten to Death as Cops Watch

    Commenter Mariam E. shared this video with us of 2 alleged gay Nigerian men beaten to death with chunks of wood as policemen and passersby watched.
    The video, which has been in circulation since December 2013, shows two males stripped of their trousers, laying on the mud amidst tires, and struck repeatedly with wooden planks on their head and torso. When the men were done with the last of their blows, both males on the ground had stopped writhing in protest, and were no longer rubbing hands together – pleading with them to stop. The alleged homosexual men laid still on the ground bleeding, while people in the video are heard saying “O ti ku” – in Yoruba, meaning “he is dead”.
    After the spectacle was over, people – policemen and pedestrians alike – are shown walking away from the scene. The video also shows an ambulance present.
    On January 7 2014, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan signed the ‘Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act‘ – a law banning same sex marriage in Nigeria, making gay marriages registered outside of Nigeria void, allowing imprisonment of club members, individuals or organisations that “support the registration, operation of gay clubs, societies and organizations, processions or meetings in Nigeria”, at a sentence of up to 14 years in jail. The bill was signed unanimously by all Nigerian senators and lawmakers on December 17th 2013 – a few days after the video began circulating.

    This is sickening! I couldn't finish watching the clip. The fainthearted cannot watch this. why don't these people beat to death our politicians who steal millions of money from us everyday.

    it was all over facebook a few days ago. i couldn't bring myself to watch it.
    i can't imagine how many innocent people are going to die. we are going backwards.
    I was going to say may the God that Nigerians pray to help us all. the God they worship must be different from the one I worship, because He wouldn't ask me to kill gay people. He would ask me to love them as i love my neighbour.

    I did not see it. I don't want to watch it just post it on my wall so that everyone can see it. I am sure Bella Naija was bullied into taking it down

    So sad. So in their minds murder is better than being gay.

    Abegi, when did you ever see that website take anything down for anybody? If a link becomes dead/removed from the source/Youtube, its dead and pointless linking to it, so it gets removed. The Youtube poster has the power to control that, nobody else.

    I did not go to the Bella naija site. Anybody based in Nigeria could be bullied to take down a video that could make someone look bad. Don't know if it was a you tube video or Bella naija video
