Two Nigerian women living in Canada has braced all odds to solemnize their marriage.
With Nigeria being one of the countries where the practice is frowned upon, and attracts 14 year jail term for such practice or even union, Nigerian gays and lesbians living in the Diaspora have boldly began to solemnize their relationships thereby eliminating fear of persecution from their home country.
According to a reliable source, information reveals that such a bold step was recently taken by two Nigerian gay lovers Phibet Ehichioya and Tricia Ogbonna who happily tied the knot in Canada. They got married on March 15th, 2016 in a distinctly low-key ceremony. Their union was conducted by Rev B.E Cawad at their residence in Canada amidst friends and families.
Meanwhile, the issue of same sex marriage having generated much buzz and controversies within some countries and religious bodies, have come to stay and has been recognised, although in some quarters and countries.
