A court in Nigeria has charged 57 men who were detained for having gay sex with “belonging to a secret cult.” THey were caught in the hotel room where, as they alleged, they had a birthday party. The men were accused of three counts of conspiracy, belonging to a secret cult and unlawful gathering, according to the Premium Times. They were ordered by the magistrate to be remanded in prison custody unless they provide a required sum of money for bail. The men do not admit guilt. A 23-year-old who was arrested said he was simply staying at the hotel overnight, on the way back from a pageant he’d attended. “I was at the reception when the police came and they told me to lie down, which I gladly did since I knew I had not committed any crime,” he said. “But I was accused of being a gay,” he said, “All efforts to explain to the police and show them the evidence of my invitation to the pageantry and pictures proved abortive.”
