It Is 2018 And Homosexuals Are Still Being Treated As Animals – Nigerian LGBTQ Volunteer Speaks On Lynching Of A Gay Man

A Nigerian homosexual was lynched upon being caught and this has caused many to speak up against the barbaric way homosexuals are being treated in the country. A Facebook user Romeo Oriogun, took to his page to bemoan the state of things in the country despite it being 2018, stating that it is just unfair the way gay people are being treated. Sharing a photo of the lynched gay man, Oriogun wrote; ”He didn’t steal, he didn’t molest anyone, he didn’t rape anybody, he didn’t hurt anybody. He was lynched because he dared to love, because he dared to be himself. Fuck! It is 2018 and homosexuals are still treated as animals, are still treated as people without rights. 

Nigeria will break you till you forget you are human. Who gave people the right to lynch a human being? Damn! This is stupid, this is so stupid. Nobody deserves to go through this kind of hell. Just imagine after lynching him and his partner, they were almost set ablaze before the police arrested them and they were only released to a lawyer because of their injuries. They looted their properties; phones, cash, motorcycle, everything. Nigeria is a sad excuse for a country. Nigerians will blame Queer people for everything yet it is in this country that Catholic Priests and their parishioners were killed by herdsmen, it is in this country that politicians loot our treasury and walk freely as they are hailed, it is in this country that health care in rural areas is nothing to write home about, despite our many problems Nigerians are not bothered, they reserve their anger for Queer people because they are the cause of everything, because what they do with their bodies will make the economy crumble. Rubbish.”  Photo Credit: Various
