The trial of 47 Nigerian men charged with homosexuality, punishable by 14 years in prison, was delayed again on Tuesday, after witnesses for their accusers failed to appear in court.

 

The judge adjourned the trial for the seventh time since the men were arrested in a Lagos hotel during a police raid in August 2018.

 

 

 

Some of the young men being prosecuted for homosexuality stand at the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos, on March 3, 2020.
