This judgment was drafted under section 134 of the 2001 Bauchi State Penal Law, which states:

“Whoever commits the offence of sodomy shall be punished with death by stoning [rajim] or any other means decided by the state.”

The father of five in a post shared on his Instagram page said it’s completely wrong to stone a man to death because of his sexual orientation.

The thesy added that they should be convicted over a crime, not homosexuality.

In his words, he wrote,

“Stoning a man to death bcos he’s gay is wrong. Totally wrong.
I’m not gay, I don’t plan to be but gay people are human beings too and should have rights.
I heard the judgement was passed in Bauchi.
How can you kill a human being bcos he’s gay?
It’s wrong.
Condemn him if he engages in criminal activities. Condemn him if he’s a rapist.
If not, leave Judgement for God.”
