Police in Nigeria have urged users of a gay dating app who may have been scammed to come forward – but has so far refused to give victims amnesty from anti-gay laws. Six people were arrested in Nigeria on 31 July for allegedly extorting money from gay people they found on a dating app, the BBC reported. The name of the app has not been released as police continue to investigate.

They confessed to the sting, confirming they had already done the same thing to eight others.
