Group lauds police over fight against homosexuality


A group, the Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association has lauded the  Nigerian Police in their efforts to reduce homosexuality to the barest minimum in the country.

This was contained in a statement issued in Osogbo on Friday by the President of the association, Mr Olalekan Hammed.

Hammed who referred to the arrest of 42  persons  in Lagos for allegedly involving in homosexuality, described  the vice as immoral and ungodly act, adding that it was also against African cultural value and belief.

“The efforts being made by Nigeria Police to ensure that homosexuality goes to extinction is commendable.

“Other government agencies, NGOs and the entire Nigerians should join the war against homosexuality.

“That is the only way we can save the incoming generations from being homosexuals,” he said.

Hammed, who urged Nigerians not to see hunting of homosexuals by the police as needless or waste of time, said the fight against homosexuality in Nigeria required collective responsibility.

The association’s president further urged that similar efforts against homosexuality should be extended to other parts of the country.
