See Photo Of Nigerian Woman Who Married Her Lesbian Partner In The US

A Nigerian lesbian woman, 53yrs old Moji Solar-Percy, walked down the aisle with her American ‘wife’ on Tuesday in the US, celebrating the freedom that she would not have had in Nigeria.

Solar-Percy, a real estate mogul, runs a company, Solar Worldwide Realty Inc. in Staten Island, New York. She gushed about her love for the woman, with whom she probably would have been arrested if the wedding had taken place in Nigeria.

Solar-Percy, who describes herself as a mother, realtor, LGBT activist, speaker, coach and host on her Facebook page, did not reveal the name of her partner.

She wrote on her Facebook wall;
“Today I woke up in a cold sweat. I was drenched with fear, for a moment. I forgot where I was. I ask you all to close your eyes, imagine what would have happened Saturday at our wedding if we were in Nigeria.

“Even though we went to great lengths to make sure we had security, the thought of the police barging in and arresting all our guests, my wife and I, to be carted off to jail, the women raped and beaten, the men brutalised, and my children beaten along with everyone else.

“When I got my bearings, I got on my knees and thanked God for his grace of living in the US. Then I remembered all the people that could not do what we did with grace and class.To all of you (gay) all over Africa, #westandforyou. May all our days be filled with blessings and grace.”

In Nigeria, such a gay marriage would have met with a clampdown from authorities as a result of the country’s Same-S*x Marriage (Prohibition) Law, which prescribes up to 14 years jail.

Nigerian husband of Canadian woman accused of human smuggling arrested by U.S. Customs

Authorities in the United States say a Nigerian national, Victor Omoruyi, husband of Michelle Omoruyi and two Canadian citizens have been apprehended as part of an investigation into human smuggling. 

Officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection said yesterday, in a statement, their own agents apprehended the two Canadian citizens and Mr Omoruyi on the North Dakota side of the border between North Portal and Northgate. According to The National Post, Mr Omoruyi was being held Thursday at the Grand Forks County Correctional Center.

On Wednesday, April 20, authorities announced that Michelle Omoruyi, 43, of Regina, was facing rare human smuggling charges after she was stopped by RCMP last Friday evening driving a vehicle near the border with nine foreign nationals from West Africa.

So far, authorities have released few details about how these individuals fell under suspicion and whether other arrests could follow. But a senior U.S. border official said Thursday the growing numbers of migrants seeking to jump the border has everyone on high alert.
“It’s on everybody’s radar,” said Alan Zeitvogel, acting division chief of operations for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Grand Forks, N.D.
The nine individuals had bypassed formal channels to come into the country, entering instead somewhere between the North Portal and Northgate crossings, the legal entry points into Saskatchewan from North Dakota. They subsequently filed refugee claims and were released from CBSA custody pending the outcome of their refugee hearings.

The following day, police searched a Regina residence and found a significant amount of cash — some in foreign currency, RCMP said.

During a four-month investigation, the Canada Border Services Agency “uncovered evidence to suggest suspected smugglers were allegedly bringing foreign nationals into Canada from the United States by facilitating their illegal crossing between designated ports of entry," Jason Evert, a CBSA assistant director, told reporters Wednesday.

The identities of the other two — a man and a woman — could not be verified, but Zeitvogel confirmed all three were still in custody and charges were pending.

It is not known how many other people may be connected to the suspected smuggling operation. The charges against Omoruyi have not been proven in court.

There are many reasons why migrants might pay a smuggler to help them get across the border, Zeitvogel said. Maybe it’s because of their knowledge of the area or because they can provide a means of transportation, he said.

In January, five Nigerians including three children were believed to be headed for Saskatchewan but became stranded in a North Dakota field near Portal in the bitter cold.  Burke County Sheriff Jeremy Grohs said they were suffering from frostbite and the onset of hypothermia. The youngest, about 15 months old, was flown to the hospital.

According to federal data, Saskatchewan saw only a handful of irregular border crossings from asylum seekers in the first three months of this year. Nationwide, the number of irregular crossings climbed from 315 in January, to 658 in February, to 887 in March.

Shocking! Russia bans Jehovah’s Witnesses, labels them as "extremist

Russia’s Supreme Court on Thursday issued a ruling banning Jehovah's Witnesses after the justice ministry called on it to dissolve the “extremist organisation”.

Supreme Court judge Yury Ivanenko said Russia had decided to close down “the administrative centre of Jehovah’s Witnesses and the local organisations in its fold and turn their property over to the Russian Federation.”

The decision comes after the ministry said it had found signs of “extremist activity” within the organisation and requested that it be banned. What signs?

“They represent a threat to the rights of people, public order and public safety,” Russian news agencies quoted justice ministry representative Svetlana Borisova as saying.

AFP reports that the group which has 395 centres across Russia, has vowed to appeal the decision.

“I’m shocked,” Yaroslav Sivulsky, who represents the group’s administrative centre, told reporters.

I didn’t expect that this could be possible in modern Russia, where the constitution guarantees freedom of religious practice.”

Russia’s Jehovah Witnesses have had several run-ins with law enforcement in recent years.

In January, the chairman of the group’s branch in the town of Dzerzhinsk was fined for having distributed material that authorities deem extremist.
