U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is refusing to provide military aid to Nigeria to battle Boko Haram terrorists, because the African nation would not legalize same-sex marriage.
The BBC News reports that, "Nigeria needed support to deliver the "killer punch", not "light jabs" against the Boko Haram group, Adebowale Ibidapo Adefuye said. His comments came as the militants seized the north-eastern Mahia town."
Mr. Adefuye is quoted as saying that, "The US government has up till today refused to grant Nigeria's request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists within a short time.''
According to the BBC News, "The US has previously ruled out heavily arming the Nigerian military because of its alleged poor human rights record. Meanwhile, Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has formally declared himself as the governing People's Democratic Party's candidate (PDP) presidential candidate for February's election at a colourful ceremony in the capital, Abuja."
Boko Haram is kidnapping young Nigerian girls, who are virgins and forcing them to marry jihadists.
