Co-founder of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement Aisha Yesufu has said she witnessed same-sex marriages in Nigeria in the 1980s.
Mrs Yesufu said on Monday that homosexuality was not a new discovery in Nigeria, adding that the choice of sexuality is personal.
“You do not need anyone liking your choice of sexuality. All you need is being given the right to practise your sexuality.
“Homosexuality was freely practiced in Nigeria for hundreds of years and I witnessed same sex marriages in the 80s. So calm down, it is not a new discovery,” she tweeted.
