The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Usmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, has added his voice to condemnations of recent activities of homosexuals in the country.
Spokesperson for the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Armiyawo Shaibu in an interview with GBC News said going strictly by the Quranic teachings and the traditions of Prophet Mohammed regarding the non-negotiable prohibition of same-sex, the Muslim community remains resolutely opposed to any attempt to legalize homosexuality as a way of life.
He called on government to clearly state its position on the recent outdooring of the LGBTQI community space. Sheikh Aremiyawo Shaibu said as a matter of urgency government should ensure the immediate closure of the LGBTQI community space.
Government he said should consider the immediate review of the law that criminalizes homosexuality to make it comprehensive and all-encompassing.
