A Muslim cleric in Ghana has defended rising attacks on homosexuals in the country after claiming gay sex ‘disgusts Allah’ and ’causes earthquakes’.

Mallam Abass Mahmud made the comments amid reports of heightened hostility among Zongo communities in Kumasi and the capital Accra towards people in same-sex relationships.

He said in an interview: ‘Allah gets annoyed when males engage in sexual encounter and such disgusting encounter causes earthquake.’

According to News Ghana, a number of gay men have fled their homes after becoming ‘afraid to disclose their sexual preferences for fear of attacks’.

Mahmud said Allah destroyed the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah ‘as the result of homosexuality’.

The cleric added: ‘Should we allow such a shame to continue in our communities against our holy teachings?

‘Certainly no, and we are very happy to chase away such idiots from our Zongo communities.’

According to the British Government’s travel advice for Ghana homosexuality in the country is illegal.

The guide adds: ‘Although there is a small gay community, there is no ‘scene’ and most Ghanaians don’t accept that such activity exists.’
