Nigeria locking up people for being gay?

It's rather peculiar how quickly something can change to affect those who dwell in an area. Africa is supposed to be a beautiful united place, When I read things like this it pisses me off. How the Lefa can people be so stupid to the point in which they prosecute and imprison people for being suspected of being a homosexual? I've never understood that.

Seriously, Nigerian officials placing a fourteen year prison charge for two people who are in a relationship. Why? What harm are these homosexual couples causing the Nigerian people? Are they a threat to national security? It's just like uganda, I don't quite understand how people develop thoughts like this. I don't understand how people develop thoughts in general that discriminate against a particular group of people without any proper basing.

I know this is technically 'old news' but I'm just alarmed and bothered by what I read earlier this week.

Was this in the north or south?

I remember reading last year that a woman was supposed to be stoned to death for some odd reason due to Islam's customs. The north is Islamic and the south is Christianity, so it'd be interesting to see where this individual was arrested.
