Yesufu, stated in a tweet that she witnessed same s3x marriages in the 80s in Nigeria and it has been in existence for a very long time.
According to her, homosexuality was not a new discovery in Nigeria, adding that the choice of sexuality is personal.
”You do not need anyone liking your choice of sexuality. All you need is being given the right to practise your sexuality. Homosexuality was freely practiced in Nigeria for hundreds of years and I witnessed same sex marriages in the 80s. So calm down, it is not a new discovery”
Yesufu was questioned by a Twitter user Imorta Rakeem about the veracity of her claims, Yesufu replied that the LGBTQ community in Nigeria is unaware that homosexuality existed in Nigeria before the coming of the colonialists.
“The most irritating part is that many amongst the LGBTQ community in Nigeria also do not know that before the coming of the colonialists it was entrenched here even while it was illegal over there.”
