“This same government pampers wicked Fulani herdsmen who kidnap and cause trouble in southern part of Nigeria.
“We are tired and scared despite the fact that more than 40% of current legislatures and over twelve governors are homosexuals in naija; why the hypocrisy,” he said.
Days back, Maduagwu revealed he is gay.
