Nigerian Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has begged Newly sworn-in US President, Joe Biden to place sanctions on Nigerian Government.
He appealed to Biden that it was necessary he placed sanctions on Nigerian Government over what he tagged as inhumane treatment of gays.
However, Maduagwu had just disclared himself as gay, hence, making him the first Nollywood actor to make this public despite ban on homosexuality in Nigeria.
The law that proscribes homosexuality was signed by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and it prohibits all forms of gay relationships in Nigeria.
The law certainly prescribes a 14-year jail term for anyone caught in an act of homosexuality.
In the same post, he also alleged that 40% of the current lawmakers and 12 state governors are “homosexuals.”
Uche Maduagwu posted on Instagram;
”Dear President JoeBiden i am proudly gay and i beg you to place sanctions on Nigerian government for its inhuman laws against law abiding homosexuals yet this same government pampers wicked fulani herdsmen who kidnap and cause trouble in southern part of nigeria.
We are tired and scared despite the fact that more than 40% of current legislatures and over twelve governors are homosexuals in naija why the hypocrisy”
