A Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has condemned the recent death sentence passed on three men alleged to be gay in Bauchi state of Nigeria.
The movie star took to his Instagram page to express his displeasure.
“Stoning a man to death because he’s gay is wrong. Totally wrong. I’m not gay, I don’t plan to be. But gay people are human beings too. And should have rights too,” he posted.
The actor’s opinion on the issue comes days after news on Sharia Court in Bauchi has sentencing three gay persons to death by stoning made waves.
