Controversial Uche Maduagwu, a Nollywood actor, has cried bitter tears after being arrested and abused. The socialite said that he was taken up by security because he admitted to being gay.
The actor resorted to social media to share a video of himself recalling his ordeal, wondering why someone could be mistreated simply because they choose to be gay.
“I was arrested this afternoon by security operatives for coming out as gay and telling Joe Biden to censure Buhari for Bauchi’s undemocratic sharia judgment on LGBT people,” he said.
He said that he was arrested after declaring his wish to join the LGBT community.
“I was gay from birth.” I am still homosexual and will always be gay. In Nigeria, the government cannot dictate us how to live our lives. What is going on in the North, particularly in Bauchi, is both unfair and wrong. “Why hasn’t a single preacher spoken out against sharia’s erroneous and undemocratic laws?” he wondered.
