Biafran & Gay Activist Faces Deportation From UK Today, June 7, 2012

*Biafran & Gay Activist Faces Deportation From UK Today

By Mark Clint

Biafran Activist and a Gay Joshua Odeke is Billed for forced deportation today, 7th June, 2012 (Home Office Ref O1151115)

Joshua Odeke (a Biafran activist and a gay) who is due to be forcibly removed to Nigeria on charter flight PVT090 on 7th June 2012.

Joshua fled Nigeria due to his political activities there, namely his involvement with the non-violent Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), which campaigns openly for Igbo tribe freedom and an independent state. Joshua is deeply worried about returning to Nigeria because both his father and brother were killed by authorities because of their involvement with MASSOB.

The Nigerian State is strongly opposed to MASSOB; since its formation in 1999, members of its supporters have been arrested and detained for months, and suffered ill-treatment whilst in police custody. Despite their commitment to peaceful protest, the police regularly fire tear gas and live ammunition at MASSOB rallies and demonstrations, and Human Rights Watch has reported incidents of members being killed by police, with women included amongst the victims. Just last month of May 2012, a number of MASSOB members were jailed for wearing Biafran T-shirts and others were killed in another incident this year. The links to these evidences are seen below:

In addition, since being detained Joshua has admitted that he is bisexual. As a bisexual or gay man Joshua is in real danger if he is returned to Nigeria, where the criminal code punishes consensual gay sex with up to 14 years in prison. Moreover, in Muslim states applying Sharia law, homosexual sex among men is punishable by death by stoning.

If returned to Nigeria, Joshua would be faced with a terrifying choice: to risk persecution by the Nigerian Security Forces,jailed or tortured if not killed.The Nigerian government has officially enshrined in her constitution a jail term of 14 years imprisonment and it is worst in the 12 Northern states that have officially enshrined sharia law where same sex relationship is punishable stoning to death or death by stoning.This inevitably has made internal relocation to anywhere in Nigeria impossible as there is no protection for Joshua.

What You Can Do To Help

Please, help stop this planned forced removal of Joshua Odeke to Nigeria by writing the Secretary of State for Home Department (SSHD), Theresa May to cancel his removal directions and allow Joshua to return to safety in Glasgow. If you do, please remember to quote Joshua’s Home Office Ref: O1151115.

Billylet him face the music.He should dance the sound from the drum he has beaten so that others will learn a lesson from him.
He saw good and decided to choose bad,since that is his choice,let him have whatever that is inside the bag he has opened/
Big lesson for all.

MarenThis is TABOO! Homosexualism, bisexualism, gayeism any other thing EXCEPT HETERROSEXUALISM, is NEVER tolerated in Nigeria. As a gay, Joshua is not qualified to fight for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra. UK government, please send Joshua home very quickly to face the consequences of his evil choice.

Comment from: Ekong [Visitor]
EkongWell, my comment relates to Biafra Map, the inclusion of Calabar and Uyo as part of Biafra. I want to state categorally and clear that Calabar and Uyo people are not Biafrans. We have never been and will never be Biafrans. Biafra I understand is for Igbos, and Cross River state and Akwa Inom State (Calabar and Uyo) are not igbos in anyyway. Please do not include or describe our dear states and people as Biafrans or Igbos because we are not and will not be.

Olayeni AkinsulieIt is enough of talking of biafra that dose not exist. If you still want to revisit biafra issue as state to be this is a wrong way to commence with it by the way, some of the states included in your map may not want to go your way.

Comment from: felix [Visitor]
felixNot that am in support of odeke been a gay, but as he choose to be let him be, and the british should consider him if not on two ground on one ground, and reading from some people who are saying evil of mr, odeke in nigeria should be a reason they should grant him asylum because i can see that the case has been publicise which attract more discrimination on him. In denmark someone was grant asylum on massob issue why not in uk?

AkwaraikeMAY GOD PUNISH WHOEVER THAT IS CAMPAIGNING FOR THAT BEAST FROM SODOM CALLED JOSHUA.THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT SHOULD DEPORT HIM IMMEDIATELY TO HELL IF POSSIBLE BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE DEMONS LIKE HIM BELONG !

Comment from: Okwudilichukwuka [Visitor]
OkwudilichukwukaI want to start by asking Felix to come out openly just like Joushau Odeke did and every body knew who he really is. Felix should stop citing countries and incidences. He should let the world know him if he is one of them so that odeke will know that he is not along in that route of destruction. But for odeke let him face the consequences of the atrocities he has been commiting there in UK.

Comment from: pastor ernest king [Visitor]
pastor ernest kingthat fool and beast should not mention anything of igbo for we are people of the True God and does not practice and does not support soddomism in any way. britain should not deport him because they exported homosexualism to nigeria during their colonialism. so let him remain and die and be buried in britain for there is no room for such an evil act in the blessed igbo land. let that son of devil called odeke look for another place to be deported and not to igbo land for we don't want such demons in our holy land in that the Lord Christ has come again and He is from original igbo-jews.
mr odeke, remain in britain and continue with your gayism and naturally will end up in hellfire (1st corinthians chapt. 6 vs. 9 and Leviticus chapt. 20 vs. 13.

Comment from: PASTOR ERNEST KING [Visitor]
PASTOR ERNEST KINGIT SEEMS THAT BRITISH/AMERICANS OR THE SO-CALLED FIRST WORLD PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND ENGLISH LANGUAGE ANYMORE OR THEY ARE TOTALLY FIGHTING AGAINST GOD? IT IS CRISTAL CLEAR IN THE HOLY BIBLE WHICH THEY TRANSLATED TO US IN AFRICA IN THE BOOK OF LIVITICUS CHAPT. 20 VS. 13(AKJV) "IF A MAN ALSO LIE WITH A MANKIND, AS LIETH WITH A WOMAN, BOTH OF THEM HAVE COMMITTED AN ABOMINATION:THEY SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH:THEIR BLOOD SHALL BE UPON THEM". VIVID EXAMPLE WAS THE 2 EVIL CITIES OF SODDOM & GOMORRAH (GENESIS 19 VS. 23 & 24) THAT WERE PRACTISING HOMOSEXUALISM IN THE OLDEN DAYS, LET ME REMIND THEM THAT THE GOD THAT DESTROYED SODDOM & GOMORRAH IS STIL THE NOW AND FOREVER AND WILL DO MORE DESTRUCTIONS TO SUCH AS PRACTICES THIS EVIL NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK. GOD IS IN CONTROL OF THIS WORLD FOR HE IS THE ONE THAT CREATED IT.
REPENT NOW YOU EVIL DOERS OR YOU FACE THE MUSIC. NO SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN NIGERIA FOREVER AND EVER FOR THAT IS THE TRUE GOD'S OWN COUNTRY. GOD BLESS NIGERIA AND TRUE NIGERIANS IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN!!!!.

Okorie johnThis gay we are talking about people here in Nigeria are still practicing it.Have federal government and the so called noise maker identify them?where mr odeke was residing in U.S.A they have accept such as their tradition ,so if he had committed an offense and the country decided to send him parking,Nigeria is still his country we should allow him to exercise the same right as a citizen of this corrupt country.when he is caught doing it we than crucify him of doing it.meanwhile EKONG that is the problem we have here in this eastern region where calaber fine it difficult to accept the igbo speaking.remember what happen to river state they are still regretting till now.be wise.

Comment from: Adiele oswin [Visitor]
Adiele oswinI condem the act completly. Here in BIAFRA such acts is not part of us. So odeke sit and eat what you cooked. For you EKONG whatever you called yourself your just but a kid and you know nothing about BIAFRAN history so shot up your mouth and leasten. Ask your father or your elder men BIAFRA was once a country of its own and ruled its territories for years including your so called .... Calarbar, uyo, rivers, cross river akwaibom and all the rest of them. I would have thought you more about BIAFRA but no time, but be wise okay.....

Comment from: Kelechi O. [Visitor]
Kelechi O.Abomination, let him face the consequences, if the UK government wishes to deport him who are we to say no. He is a disgrace to the Igbos and to biafra at large as he claimed to be a biafran activist. And for Ekong, you will surely regret it this your statement soonest, you will see in a very short time biafra must surely come pass.

Olayeni AkinsulieSome Igbos will want to actualise biafra as an independent state from present Nigeria while some want next Nigerian president to be an Igbo person.YOU NEED TO SHAPE-IN OR SHAPE-OUT

Comment from: Riot5000 [Visitor]
Riot5000MOST NIGERIANS at home are ETERNAL POLITICAL IGNORAMUSES.
Reading their rants on this medium tells you a lot as to why Africans are SLAVES in one form or another, and are DOOMED to remain such for generations to come.
Better forget the man's sexual orientation and listen to his political messages.
The most CATASTROPHIC Country on Earth, Nigeria, has reasons why they are so educated, but ruled by the GREATEST IDIOTS and IGNORAMUSES on Earth.
SADindeed.
EDUCATEYOURSELVES, NIGERIANS, YOU TOO IGNORANT, while all the while, EDUCATED.

Comment from: Banyi Jp [Visitor]
Banyi Jpmany philosophers believe that nothing is good or bad but it all depends on the angle from which they are viewed but later come to say that some actions are bad in themselves irrespective of the angle from which they are viewed, i'm very sure homosexualism and murder are among, they also observed that other lower animals do not indulge in it. The young man should not be allowed to come back because he is not safe here for two reasons:his political view(masob)and sex style. Nigerian government is anti-masob
