Your massive support in this campaign is well appreciated. We still need to raise the profile of this good cause and prevent losing a human soul needlessly. It is unimaginable the significant risk of death and torture to Aderonke’s life and human right if forcibly returned to Nigeria.

 Human Rights abuses against lesbians and gay men in Nigeria have been widely reported, the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission on 26/06/2013, states: 

 “NIGERIA: Fairness and Equality for LGBT People Hangs in the Balance - On May 30, 2013 the Nigerian House of Representatives passed the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Bill:AN ACT TO PROHIBIT MARRIAGE OR CIVIL UNION ENTERED BETWEEN PERSONS OF THE SAME SEX, SOLEMNIZATION OF SAME AND FOR OTHER MATTERS RELATED THEREWITH. (HB 197) (see http://www.iglhrc.org/content/nigeria-fairness-and-equality-lgbt-people-hangs-balance).

Also in its op- editorial, The Flames of Homophobia Burn in Nigeria, it was said:The flames of homophobia are burning in Nigeria. The latest version of the deceptively named "Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Bill” has dangerously resurfaced". 

"The last 10 years in Nigeria have seen frightening levels of terrorism and religious and ethnic violence. At no time in the history of Nigeria is the unity of the country more threatened than now, never have we witnessed such deep-seated mistrust of Nigerian elites and ethnic leaders. It seems that the only thing these leaders – and most Nigerians- can agree on is their love of football and their hatred of homosexuality”(see http://www.iglhrc.org/print/content/flames-homophobia-burn-nigeria). 

It is imperative therefore that we ask you to continue your unflinching support, invite your friends to sign and help us to achieve the 1000 signature-mark goal.

Many thanks, 

Aderonke
