Some enraged residents of Adabraka, a suburb of Accra have descended heavily on one self-acclaimed LGBTQ advocate Abdul Fatahi Osumanu whom they suspect of promoting gayism and lesbianism in the community.
According to information gathered by this portal, Abdul Fatahi Osumanu has been assisting gays and lesbians by providing them with tips on how to flee whenever the community plans to pursue them.
The recent attack occurred when the self-acclaimed LGBTQ advocate sent his younger brother in the person of Mumuni Osumanu to the hospital after being beaten and assaulted by some aggrieved youth simply because he is gay.
“We can’t accommodate people like this in our community. Furthermore, our culture frowns on this immoral act. The area is a Muslim-dominated community, and Islam, too, frowns on such horrific acts,” they fumed.
According to the residents, Abdul Fatahi Osumanu is a “Demon” who lives among them; hence he must be chased out of the neighborhood.
It is worth noting that the self-proclaimed LGBTQ advocate has been warned several times to refrain from such dubious acts, but he has chosen to ignore all warnings because he has made up his mind to promote this heinous crime that all religions condemn. Even the police issued warnings to him, but he disregarded them.
In an exclusive interview with Abdul Fatahi Osumanu, he admitted to being an LGBTQ advocate claiming that the residents have been threatening and asking him to relocate from the area.
“To me, I surmise these gays and lesbians also deserve a right to be treated as human beings. Recently, I was attacked after sending my younger Mumuni Osumanu to the hospital. He was beaten and detained by the community simply because he is gay,” he disclosed.
Since the security forces in Ghana shuttered the office of an organization that assists the LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, and Intersex) community in the country where homosexuality is illegal, some gays have intimated that they are wanted.
Religious groups such as the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) have also pushed for the government to summon foreign diplomats who support LGBTQI rights activism in Ghana.
