Nollywood actor and controversial social media influencer, Uche Maduagwu has revealed that he was arrested by security operatives for coming out as gay.
Maduagwu’s alleged arrest is coming a day after he made a u-turn about his sexuality on social media, claiming he was born gay and would forever remain one. He went on to appeal to the president of the United States of America, Joe Biden, to sanction his Nigerian counterpart for infringing on the rights of Nigerians.
The actor made this known via his Instagram page. He said: “I was arrested this afternoon by security operatives for coming out as gay and for telling Joe Biden to sanction Buhari over Bauchi undemocratic sharia judgment on LGBT,
The government cannot tell us how to live our lives in Nigeria. What is happening in the North, especially Bauchi is so unfair and wrong. No single pastor spoke out against sharia’s erroneous undemocratic laws, why?”
