Ghana: Residents Chase Suspected Gay, Threaten To Kill Him

Ransford Morris

Angry residents of Aboaba number 2 a suburb of Kumasi, are on the chase of one Ransford Morris who they suspect to be gay.

The Ghanaian community is waging a relentless war on the gay practice hence people suspected to be gays are finding hard times coping and making a life in peace.

The residents claimed that the area is Muslim dominated community; adding that Islam also frowns upon such act which they described as heinous.

It is in this regard, the residents have decided to wage war against persons they believed to be practicing or engaging in homosexuality.

An investigation conducted by Capitalnewsonline indicates that Ransford Morris, the suspected gay victim was once attacked by some mob some years ago as a result of this gay issue.

In an exclusive interview with Ransford Morris, he admitted that for some time now, the residents have been threatening and asking him to relocate from the area.

“I have been receiving life-threatening calls and messages. Honestly, I’m scared of living in this country because life is becoming unbearable for me. My life is not secured.

LGBTQI people are very frequently victims of physical violence and psychological abuse,” he lamented.

Ever since the Security forces in Ghana closed the office of an organization that supports the LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, Gay, bisexual trans, queer, intersex) community in the country where homosexuality is prohibited, some gays hinted that it seems as if they are on the wanted list.

Religious factions such as the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), have also further advanced arguments for the government to summon foreign diplomats supporting advocacy for LGBTQI rights in Ghana.

According to Ransford Morris, he is unable to go out to do his normal duties and hence appealing for human rights advocates to come to their aid.
