A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has given the Federal Government till April 28, 2014 to react to a suit challenging the recent law which criminalised Same Sex Marriage in Nigeria.
One Teriah Joseph Ebah had through his counsel, Mike Enahoro Ebah, dragged the federal government to court.
He is claiming that the Act of the National Assembly as endorsed by President, Goodluck Jonathan violates the provisions of the 1999 constitution and the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights.
Ebah is therefore urging the court to stop the Federal Government from implementing the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act.
Justice Abdu Kafarati yesterday said that he would commence hearing in the case on the next adjournment date.
