This law is not only banning the equal marriage, it also criminalizes homosexual relationships with sentences of up to 14 years in prison.

Already many homosexuals have left Nigeria because they face of persecution against them. We can bet that others will follow suit.

US Secretary of State John Kerry said that the United States is "deeply concerned" by a law that "dangerously restricts freedom of assembly, association, and expression for all Nigerians."

Other British and Canadian ministers also expressed dissatisfaction.
