The Choggu Chief in the Tamale Metropolis of the Northern Region, Naa Alhassan Mohammed, has fined four suspected gays ¢1200 and a ram each for desecrating his land.

Two of the four men were handed over to the chief after confusion broke out between them.

According to an eyewitness, the two partners were found around Choggu arguing because one had ended the relationship.

Incised by the break up the other took a machete to attack his partner.

This attracted onlookers who intervened, and upon interrogations, they were said to have confessed to being gay. They were handed over to the Choggu Naa, who questioned them.

They were said to have named two others who were also summoned before the chief.

The Choggu Naa, in his pronouncement, said such acts were against the laws of the land and Islam.

He stated that if they were in an Islamic state, they would have been stoned to death, but considering that there are laws in the country he has handed them over to the police.

He said the laws of the land will decide if they are guilty or not.

Naa Alhassan Mohammed said his prayer for his land is that anyone engaging in that practise should be exposed, so it serves as a lesson to all those practising such an act.
