Rev. Macaulay, who is openly Gay and was recently appointed the Chaplain at St. Peter’s House, the chaplaincy of Manchester’s Universities, described the verdict as barbaric and an abuse of human rights.

In his words;

“This is heartbreaking and the very reason that Pride is a Protest. Killing gay people because of who they love is barbaric and an abuse of human rights. Nigeria allows the Northern states to execute gays under sharia law,” he wrote.

“We need a new voice of reason to protect the lives of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender citizens in Nigeria. We must seek justice for the lives of these men.”

“Dear @PeterObi & @doyinokupe Queer Nigerians desperately need a change, a government that will deliver on their human rights, end police brutality, and decriminalization of homosexuality. What is your manifesto saying? What can LGBTQ citizens expect for their vote in 2023,”

“Any sane government will include those who deeply care about the welfare and justice for those most vulnerable. @atiku @PeterObi @Official_ABAT must ensure that human rights for LGBTQ become a reality. Queer Nigerians contribute to society and the economy. We cannot be ignored”
