Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, who recently came out to declare that he is ‘gay and proud,’ has called on the President of the United States, Joe Biden, to place “sanctions on the Nigerian government over the 2014 anti-gay law,” as over 40 percent of lawmakers in the country as well as over 12 state governors are homosexuals.

Maduagwu who posted on his Instagram account on Saturday, said:

“Dear President Joe Biden, I am proudly gay, and I beg you to place sanctions on Nigerian government for its inhuman laws against law-abiding homosexuals.”

He also spoke about the menace of criminal herdsmen, saying they are being pampered by the government while gay people are being hounded and stigmatized.
