Abuja - Religious organisations in Nigeria threatened to expel gay diplomats if such officials were deployed to the country.
The spokesman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Sunday Oibe, said that any nation that sends a gay diplomat to Nigeria will be violating the laws of the land and thus such actions should be resisted.
Both Christians and Muslims in Nigerians have agreed on that, he said.
"We want to make it abundantly clear, be it America or Britain or any country that sends a gay diplomat to Nigeria we will would mobilise to chase him out of the country.
"We are putting President Goodluck Jonathan on notice that Christians will mobilise against such moves. We are not going to be intimidated by any country of the world that is practising this evil,” said Oibe
"Gay marriage is evil and we will resist any attempt to bring evil into Nigeria. God is always angry with any country that practises sodomy.
"He is always angry with that nation. We have so many troubles in our hands already. Let us manage the ones we have. We do not want anything to do with gays," Oibe added.
The majority of Nigerians support the proposed Anti Same-Sex Marriage Bill , mostly based on morality and religions.
Most are of the opinion that the proposed bill is not an infringement on the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) community because such moral acts are not part of the Nigerian culture.
In May, the House of Representatives passed the 'Anti Same Sex Marriage Bill' that makes same-sex unions in Nigerian a criminal offence punishable by a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison.
The bill criminalizes public displays of affection by same-gender partners.
