FG denies investigating Swiss Ambassador over Homosexual Act

The federal government has denied reports that it is investigating the Swiss Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Eric Mayoorza, for allegedly bringing a gay partner into the country.

Early reports said Ministry of Foreign Affairs was investigating Ambassador Mayoorza for allegedly bringing a Brazilian gay partner, simply identified as Carlos into Nigeria having arrived the country last year.

Denying the report that his ministry was investigating the ambassador, Foreign Affairs minister, Geoffrey Onyeama said in a statement that Mr. Mayoorza was not under investigation.

The statement reads: “The government has learned with shock and dismay of a defamatory article in a Nigerian newspaper against the Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation to Nigeria.

“I wish to state categorically that the government has no knowledge whatsoever of any of the matters discussed in the article and could therefore not have authorised anyone to speak on its behalf in respect of them.

“With regard to the defamatory article, the government has ordered an investigation and appropriate measures will be taken for any wrongdoing.

“It is to be emphasised that Nigeria and Switzerland enjoy very cordial relations.”

It will be recalled that same-sex sexual activity was in 1942 legalised in Switzerland.
