Ghanaian cultural dancer, Yussif Ali, has caught the attention of radical anti-gay vigilante group, Safety Empire.
Yussif Ali, granted an interview to an online portal where he condemned a viral video where a gay was being beaten by the Safety Empire anti-LGBT group.
In the interview, Yussif indicated that people had to be allowed to do whatever they want with whatever partner they so desired be it male or female.
He then added that the beating of the gay man which had gone viral on social media in Ghana was not right and had to be condemned in no uncertain terms.
One other Ghanaian who gave his name as David Alad who also added his voice to the disturbing video, called on Human Right Organizations to come to the aid of such people since societal norms were marginalizing them owing to the fact that they were in the minority in many places including Ghana.
Following the interview which got published online, Yussif has become the target of anti-LGBTQ factions in Ghana with many of such groups especially Safety Empire threatening his life and even going to the extent of threatening his family.
It has been reported that members of Safety Empire have threatened to end Yussif Ali’s life over his comments which seek to promote LGBT activities and such individuals in Ghana.
Safety Empire has been in the business of bullying, threatening and torturing members of the LGBTQ community and seem not to be apprehended for it due to the fact that there are no laws protecting members of the LGBTQ community.
Yussif may end up like the many victims of Safety Empire should they have a physical confrontation with him.
Yussif’s comments follow a video which gained a lot of attention and debate in Ghana which saw a man being beaten mercilessly by elements of Safety Empire on the basis that he was a gay.
