Please support Becley and urgently sign and SHARE this petition addressed to California governer Edmund G Brown Jr to help stop the deportation of Becley Aigbuza!
Please sign to intervene or Becley Aigbuza could be sent back to Nigeria were he risks almost certainly being arrested, tortured and convicted
Nigeria is already trying to strengthen it's already draconian laws against homosexuals. It could mean that if Nigeria had it's way Becley could even face the Death Penalty if he were to be sent home
Becley Aigbuza is in your hands so please support Tigro. and #savebecley
Locked up in a cell for hours he was beaten up and raped by other detainees because the police had informed them he was a homosexual. When the police finally came for him he was taken out of his cell, they beat him up badly and tortured him.
Becley told Everyone Group, a Human Rights Organisation,
"After being forced to admit to them that I was gay, the police tied me up, burned my forehead with cotton wool soaked with acid and took turns sodomizing me with a beer bottle for hours"
"I woke up in hospital in Benin City with a dislocated shoulder, a broken hand, bruises and wounds all over my body and a mutilated testicle. I had been betrayed by my own family and cruelly punished just for loving a person of the same sex"
With a desperate attempt to get back to the US he managed to flee the hospital shortly after and returned to San Diego where he made a complaint to the Nigerian Embassy in Washington.
The Nigerian Embassy Told him that,
"I deserved the treatment seeing as I was gay, and that things would get much worse for me if I returned to Nigeria"
If he was returned to Nigeria now he would almost certainly be arrested, tortured and imprisoned. In Nigeria the Death Penalty can be applied for homosexuality
Please help and take further Urgent Action by appealing to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, The Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton and the Governor of California, Edmund Brown Junior to intervene. Becley's life is now in your hands #savebecley
