Security officials have locked up LGBTQI office in Accra

The security officials together with the landlord of the building and the Kwabenya Traditional Council went to the premises of the organisation on Wednesday morning and locked up the facility.

According to the landlord, Dr Asenso Gyambibi, the use of his facility for LGBTQI activities was in breach of the tenancy agreement as the tenant, one Alex Kofi Donkor, rented the facility under the pretext of using it as an office for a health NGO.

The council vowed to resist the establishment of the office.
