The LGBT Community in Ghana says their safety is being threatened after officials of the National Security raided their office Wednesday afternoon.

In a Facebook post, the Community said some traditional leaders have threatened to burn down their office.

“This morning, our office was raided by National Security. A few days ago, traditional leaders threatened to burn down our office but the police did not help. At this moment, we no longer have access to our safe space and our safety is being threatened,” the Facebook post stated.

The post called on human rights organizations to rally to their defence.

“We call on all human rights organizations, and allies to speak out against this attack”.

Conversation and anger towards LGBT practices have been renewed in Ghana following fundraiser which was attended by several diplomats including the Australian High Commissioner who pledged to support the group.

The EU office in Ghana has declared support for the group.
