Court dismisses Gay and Lesbian right in Nigeria


A suit challenging the non-registration of a same sex group by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), has been rejected by Justice Nnamdi of the Federal High Court.

The plaintiff, Pamela Adie, in the court papers, said that sometime in October 2017, she founded the “Lesbian Equality and Empowerment Initiatives” whose objective was primarily to advocate for the rights of same sex sexual orientation people but that her quest to register the association at the CAC, through her counsel, Fajenyo Kayode, was declined.

She then filed a motion challenging the decision of the commission to decline the registration of the association.
