The problem of LGBT rights among Africans reared its ugly head again recently in far away Maryland,USA.The case involves a Nigerian lady,

Kafayat Hazzan and her Nigerian born US husband,who reportedly found out she was bisexual.According to the story,Kafayat,s husband,who had long suspected her allegedly  caught her one day discussing intimately  with her lesbian partner. The eavesdropping husband, it was learnt,could not believe what he just found out about his wife especially being a Muslim whose faith vehemently preaches against same sex marriage or relationship.

 

As a result,Kafayat,s husband is said to be finalising plans to end their marriage.He is said to be presently talking to his lawyers. Of note is the odium and ridicule from friends and family she’s been subjected to following her husband’s sudden discovery.

 

Those close to Kafayat say she’s been downcast ever since the shocking find and all effort to let her man see reasons on her decision  has totally failed.She is reportedly   distraught at the ridicule from her family too.A source told us that she now stays indoor and a total shadow of her bubbly self.As a result, she has told a few friends that she’s tired of life and doesn’t exactly know what to do.She also told friends she doesn’t know where to go to save herself the embarrassment from her husband.

 

Hazzan risks a 14-year jail term if by chance she finds herself in Nigeria and the authorities get to know.Ever since the National Assembly promulgated the Law against Gay rights a few years back,practitioners of same sex relationship, if found out, have never escaped prosecution.

NTDC boss, Folly Coker”s 2nd Marriage Crashes

Published

on

The second marriage of Folorunsho Coker, the Director-General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Company, (NTDC), to Aisha Rimi, has reportedly crashed.

 

Just when everyone thought Coker’s second marriage to Aisha Rimi, a member of Rimi Partners, an Abuja -based law firm specialising in corporate legal services, business advisory services and government relations, would outlast his first, it ended up making a dry run while it lasted.

 

Coker was first married to Folake Akindele-Coker, the boss of foremost fashion design label, *Tiffany* *Amber* . Folly Coker as he is fondly called, ended the marriage, which produced three children, abruptly. Still dazed by the manner with which her marriage ended, Folake retained her ex-husband’s name and still does to this day. While she is still single, Folly (as he is fondly called) moved on quickly and jumped into another marriage with Aisha. Aisha also used to be married to Lateef Bello Osagie, a sibling of Hakeem Bello Osagie, a former Chairman of United Bank of Africa (UBA). No sooner had her marriage to Lateef ended than she hooked up with Folly and married him. They resolved to give their second attempt at marriage their best shot and make their new ‘partnership’ work.

 

In fact, early in the marriage, Folly and his wife managed to keep the union together, but seeing that they could no longer continue to patch things up, they both finally decided they had had enough of each other.

 

What could have led to breakup of their marriage?

 

Pundits are however of the opinion that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission investigation of Aisha’s alleged involvement in the diversion of the sum of N3 billion from the account of Lagos State Government Number Plate Production Authority, when Folly was the managing director, was allegedly the beginning of the end of their marriage.

 

Recall that the EFCC in an affidavit had alleged that the investigation of the fraud was based on an intelligence received by the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit of suspicious transactions on the account of Rimi and Partners.

 

According to the EFCC, there were “heavy inflows” in excess of N3 billion from LSGNPPA into the account of the company owned by Aisha Rimi, who was still married to Coker at the time.That perhaps,was the catalyst that set the tone for the marriage break up as Aisha was said to have revealed many things to the anti graft body.

Presently, close friends and associates of the family are watching with keen interest what the outcome of this break up will result to.
