The perfect culture war story
A million different angles -- all culture-war hot topics.
Homosexuality. Polygamy. Nigeria. Islam. Church and state. Street violence. All this in a 430-word story. Here's how it begins:
Kano State government has ordered police to arrest five women, Aunty Maiduguri and her four women spouses whom she married with full celebration over the weekend, contrary to the Shari’a legal system being operated in the state.
Government has also ordered demolition of three theatres in farm centre, Kano including the theatre where the marriage ceremony took place. The theatre was host to the celerity marriage where an estimated 2,000 people attended.
