Bolu Okupe, the son of former presidential spokesperson, Doyin Okupe, has revealed that some of the people who signed anti-gay laws in 2014 in Nigeria are gay.
In an Instagram live video on Monday, January 25, Bolu who came out recently as gay, kicked against the anti-gay law in Nigeria.
The anti-gay law was signed by former President Goodluck Jonathan in January 2014, bans same-sex marriages and relationships in Nigeria and prescribes a 14-year jail term for anyone caught in the act.
“With the whole 14 year law, I bet you for a fact, some people who were signing or voting for that law are gay themselves. It’s ridiculous” he said.
Bolu also took aim at women who are homophobic. According to him, more women should be fighting more for acceptance because a lot of them are married to gays.
”I do feel sorry for the women. You women should be fighting more for acceptance because a lot of you guys are married to gay men. I am sorry but your whole lives are a sham, fake. Your husbands are living in secrecy and leading double lives. I feel like some of you know and some of you don’t mind because your husband is rich but some of you don’t know but discover later and it’s heartbreaking.”
He also took slammed Christians who are quick to point out that homosexuality is a sin. He said that many Christians sleep with themselves, whether married or single, but never see it as sin and are hypocrites.
