Intelligence officers swift into action as soon as they received hint of the gay wedding ceremony going on in the leading-centre of Islamic learning, reports BBC Hausa Service.
Police spokesman, Almustafa Sani told the news platform that authorities were conducting a thorough investigation with a view to charging the two people arrested for being involved in “unnatural” conduct.
Mr Sani said homosexuality was illegal under Nigeria’s secular constitution and Islamic law which is applied in Sokoto state.
This incident occurred hours before U.S top Diplomat, John Kerry visited the state and appealed to Nigerians to practise equality and tolerance to “overcome deep-seated ethnic and religious divisions.”
