Nigeria Senate approves bill banning gay marriage in Africa’s most populous nation


LAGOS, Nigeria — Nigeria’s Senate voted Tuesday to criminalize gay marriage, instituting prison terms of more than a decade for violations in a nation where gays and lesbians already face discrimination and abuse.
The bill heads to Nigeria’s House of Representatives, who have to approve the bill and send it to President Goodluck Jonathan for his signature before it becomes a law. However, public opinion — and lawmakers’ calls for even harsher penalties for being gay — shows wide support for the measure in the deeply religious nation.

“Such elements in society should be killed,” Sen. Baba Dati said during the debate. Under the measure, couples who marry could face up to 14 years in jail, and witnesses or anyone who helps couples marry could be sentenced to 10 years behind bars. That’s an increase over the bill’s initial penalties. More on the Story

I Didnt Buy a Rolls Royce_Duncan Mighty

Early in November it was reported that Nigerian artist Duncan Mighty had acquired a Rolls Royce phantom, even with some pictures to show.
Apparently we were all misinformed, as the Artist(Duncan Mighty) has denied buying the Car and said, it was only hired for a video shoot. Even though I know Duncan Mighty is quite Rich enough to buy it....And maybe denying that he bought it for safety....

Nigeria's anti-corruption chief Farida Waziri sacked

by BBC

Nigeria's President, Goodluck Jonathan, has sacked the head of the country's anti-corruption agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). No reason was given by the president's office for Farida Waziri's dismissal. Her predecessor at the EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, was removed midway through his term in 2007 not long after Umaru Yar'Adua became president. Rights groups have been critical of the agency, accusing it of being under the influence of politicians. Nigeria has been plagued by allegations that its wealth has been used for corrupt purposes since the oil boom of the 1970s. Ms Waziri's deputy, Ibrahim Lamorde, has been appointed by the president to head the commission.

Berlusconi Steps Down, and Italy Pulses With Change

ROME — Marking the end of a tumultuous week and of an era in Italian politics, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi resigned Saturday evening after Parliament approved austerity measures sought by the European Union.

The lower house passed the measures on Saturday by a vote of 380 to 26, a day after they were approved by the Senate, trying to keep a step ahead of market pressures that sent borrowing rates on Italian bonds skyrocketing last week to levels that have required other euro zone countries to seek bailouts. The vote, and Mr. Berlusconi’s resignation, come amid the biggest crisis facing the European Union in decades, in which the power of financial markets has upended traditional democratic processes. Pressured by European leaders struggling to shore up the euro against speculative attacks, Prime Minister George A. Papandreou of Greece resigned last week to make way for a technocrat-led unity government. Mr. Berlusconi followed suit, a rare about-face for a leader known for his perseverance and his refusal to bow to critics. The end of Mr. Berlusconi’s 17-year hold on Italian politics sets off the country’s most significant political transition in 20 years.

US warns of attacks on luxury Nigerian hotels after 150 killed

The five-star Hilton, Nicon Luxury and Sheraton hotels in Nigeria’s capital, which are frequented by diplomats, politicians and Nigeria’s business elite, were identified by the US embassy. In an unusually specific warning on Sunday, US diplomats have advised their staff to avoid luxury hotels in Abuja. The embassy said the attack may come as Nigeria celebrates the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha. Experts say the militant Islamist group Boko Haram, which claimed responsibility for Friday’s violence and threatened more attacks, is working with al Qaeda which could push Nigeria into a Somalia-style civil war. The series of synchronised bombings on churches, mosques and police headquarters and running gun battles took place in Damaturu, capital of Yobe state. There were also synchronised attacks in Maiduguri, capital of neighbouring Borno state, and two small towns. Seven police officers and two soldiers were among the dead and 100 other people were injured in violence the country’s president Goodluck Jonathan labelled “heinous”. “This place was like a war zone. There is no single policeman on the street now. The attacks destroyed mosques and churches ... There were dozens of dead bodies, and no vehicles on the road,” said Benard Ogbeifun, a Damaturu artisan.lamist group is planning to bomb three luxury hotels in Abuja after 150 people were killed in coordinated attacks in northeast Nigeria.
