The statement went further to state a few instances when homosexuals have been victimised in the country saying, “Amongst many others was the case of Mr I.O. Ibrahim, whose home and family were attacked and raided by unidentified security agents, thugs and still declared wanted by the agents some months ago. He is currently living in abroad and struggling for human rights and egalitarian society globally.”
The group also condemned “the dastardly act perpetrated by group of youths who molested and intimidated four Nigerians in Ekwe village of Njaba LGA, Imo State.”
They were attacked, stripped and paraded across the cities over accusation of indecent practices- homosexuality.
The statement was signed by Salawu K., Anisere A., Kehinde A., Orilonise I. A., George U., Olatoyan T., Ogunshowo L., Penu Z. K., Ogunleye A., Adenola B. S., Tobiloba F., Kazeem A. O. and Babatunde Ayinde R., who are members of the group but do not disclose their full identities.
The group said instead of wasting time and energy on homosexuals, the Nigerian government should rather provide the dividends of democracy and accountability to its citizens.
