A passerby military man became the unlikely saviour of a confessed homosexual who was being handed severe beatings by an irate youth at Kawukudi park, near Nima in Accra on Sunday 30th August 2015.

The soldier whose name has been withheld was merely passing by when he noticed a crowd beating a young man so decided to find out what was happening only to realise that the victim was being beaten so severely just because he was gay.

According to eyewitnesses, the victim, Abdul Kadiri Mutawakil who also stays in Nima was invited by a friend to watch a football game at the Kawukudi park not aware of the hidden intention to beat him up after proofs and evidences against him of being gay, which he admitted himself.

Mutawakil allegedly claimed he had been born as a homosexual and therefore cannot control the urge of his sexual orientation, words which angered the angry crowd even more as they jumped on him and handed him severe beatings.

Luck was on his side however when he was rescued due to the intervention of the Military man who stopped the angry mob and prevented the situation from escalating.

The beating of Abdul Kadiri Mutawakil comes few months after another alleged gay was beaten up, lashed and made to confess his sexual orientation in a video recording at the same Nima.

Homosexualism is frowned upon by the Ghanaian society even though rumours persist that a host of people actively engage in it.
