Nigeria got a European finger wagging over the weekend.
Understandably angry over the Nigerian government’s anti-gay attitude, the European Parliament’s intergroup on gay rights sent a letter to the nation’s EU ambassador urging him to right his state’s wrongs.
The letter, which was signed by three MEPs, reads:
We have to react to continued and life-threatening media harassment of human rights defenders taking place in Nigeria.
Media outlets in the country have been inciting hatred against human rights activists of the NGO House of Rainbow in Lagos and many of them are scared for their lives and hiding or have left the country.
That is unacceptable and the government must intervene.
No word on whether Nigeria gives a damn.
