A Nigerian female U.K. Labour party councillor, Chika Amadi has been suspended from the party over social media posts branding Pride marchers ‘evil’.
Chika Amadi who is a pastor and a councilor for the London Borough of Harrow, was been suspended by the Party, after she made multiple homophobic comments online.
She has referred to Prides as events for ‘pedophiles’ and threatened people who challenged her remarks. A Labour party spokesperson said: ‘Chika Amadi has been suspended from the Labour Party pending an investigation.’
One Twitter user once pointed out her homophobia and she responded with: “Evil. If you dare walk naked in front of my child God will give you terrible assignment that will put you to perpetual sleep. Be warned.”
Harrow Council’s leader, Sachin Shah, told the Evening Standard:
Homophobic views have no place in our community – which is one of the most diverse and accepting in all of the UK. We stand for equal rights for all – and I have asked the national Labour Party to deal with this issue swiftly and decisively.’
