Gays In Nigeria Might Start Committing Suicide - Reverend Jide Macaulay

Gay Reverend Jide Macaulay is the Founder and Project Director of House Of Rainbow Fellowship. The man yesterday wrote to vanguard where he said after President Jonathan singed the Same S*x Marriage Prohibition Bill 2013 into law, he has been receiving so many calls, emails and online messages expressing fear, anger, anxiety and suicide attempts.  Here is what he wrote to Vanguard.

On January 7th, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan signed the Same S*x Marriage Prohibition Bill 2013 into law. The law bans same s*x marriage, and through its wording, also seeks to criminalise people, organisations and agencies who support homos*xuality and those who do not immediately report any known homos*xuals, or homos*xual activities.

Since January12th, when the announcement was made, the LGBT-community has been thrown into panic. There is chaos throughout Nigeria as we are grappling with keeping up with mass arbitrary arrest, humiliation, blackmail, extortion and police corruption in several ‘charge and bail’ cases.

The hostility in Nigeria against gay people has reached epic proportions. In the East of Nigeria, many are fleeing their homes. One gay man, labelled “a leader of the homos*xual” is on the run. His parents and brother were threatened with arrest if they don’t provide information about his whereabouts.

In the same region, more than six people were arrested. In the West of the country, we can confirm that nearly ten people have been arrested and bailed. The police have extorted funds from each victim at an average of between $120 to $300. Most of the people arrested were tortured and asked to provide additional details of other gays or lesbians. In the North of Nigeria, in Bauchi and Kano, there are two separate cases of arrests and harassment of gay people. Both areas are firmly under sharia law, which carries the death penalty.

In the wake of the passing of the anti gay laws, there is no doubt of the many calls, emails and online messages we have received, expressing fear, anger, anxiety and suicide attempts. This is a critical time for all LGBTI-people; a time when our ideals are being stretched and tested.

The Nigerian President and legislators have ignored the critical aspect of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and passed into law a legislation that is unjust.

In a BBC Radio program yesterday, I spoke out to condemn this law. However, a few of the speakers claimed that a research showed that 98% of Nigerians are happy and jubilant about this law, and based on their religious beliefs that homos*xuality is “unafrican”, against religion and unnatural.

Nigeria like many African nations, has many issues and the oppression of LGBT-citizens is largely unwelcomed by an already marginalised group. We are now looking into our first priority intervention to help those displaced and or attacked.

In view of the present situation in Nigeria, we are helping with emergency evacuation to safe homes around the country. The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs), a Human Rights Organisation in Nigeria, has now opened a 24hr support line for LGBT-people in Nigeria.

We also continue to advise all LGBT-people to stay away from trouble, not pick unknown phone numbers and sign off gay dating websites.

    1. Some stupid and misguided young girls especially in our higher institutions (some in cults) WILLINGLY made themselves lesbians with the believe that it was 'fashionable'... I have no pity for these ones when they find out they are stuck in it for life...

      On the contrary, I have never seen or heard of any man that willingly made himself GAY. Especially for the men with the 'GAY' sickness in Nigeria, it is purely an affliction which they never prayed for or expected or have much power to overcome.. It is just like cancer or mental illness, no one knows where it comes from or when it comes....

      Trust me when I say this affliction could happen to anyone including your brother or sons (I know you will scream 'impossible' or 'God Forbid' but this is the fact... The individuals with this affliction need deliverance and especially for the ones in Nigeria, they would be willing to sacrifice anything even their mothers to any deity if they get an assurance that they would be cured...

      Now back to your comment saying homosexuals should commit suicide, if someone in your family was afflicted with this mental disorder, would you honestly suggest that they instantly commit suicide??

      .. just a mild question to prick your conscience..

  10. Pastor Macaulay should tell the people calling him not to commit suicide but run as fast as possible out of Nigeria to Saudi Arabia or Iran or China or North Korea for safety. He should do this as soon as possible so their blood won't be on his head.

  13. In as much as it disgusts me (now that's my personal take) that some people would rather have sex with people of same sex(disturbing $$ unnatural), I still don't think it's up to anyone to condemn them to die be it president or legislators. Men sleeping with men is sin likewise men single or married sleeping with women whom they are not married to. Homosexuality, adultery $ fornication is same before God as idolatery, lying, stealing, $ every other attrocities commited by so called legislators $ presidents $ fellow 'human beings' calling for the blood of LGBT people.

  17. I guess Jide, Bible is different from what we all read guess the scriptures they always use in winning souls is love your neighour as your self, the RAINBOW CHURCH, that's the symbol that's used in the world to show acceptance for faggots . which is what they really are the actually meaning of the word gay has been abused cause of these people . America needs to mind its business nobody tells them how to run the affairs of there country they think they are voltrons defend of the universe ,they should stop the killings in the schools and come and talk or maybe they should adopt polygamy that would be fun, lol
