This is coming barely 24 hours after Okupe claimed his gay son is going through a ‘spiritual challenge’, adding that he is hopeful that God would intervene.
In a post shared on his Facebook page, Okupe who served in the Goodluck Jonathan administration that passed an anti-gay law, said his son, Bolu, should not be treated as a criminal for declaring himself a homosexual.
Okupe revealed that his gay son lives in France where homosexuality is not a crime, adding that he have five other son who are not gay and are doing well for themselves.
Sharing a screenshot from a magazine that shows another son of his listed among the Most Influential Africans in 2017, the former presidential aide said;
“This is also my son Dewunmi Okupe, one of Bolu Okupe’s five other brothers. I love all the children God has given me, Bolu inclusive. I pray for them to excel in their fields of endeavours. Bolu will still be celebrated on this wall, in Nigeria and globally, in the name of Jesus.”
“Bolu is not a criminal. He lives in France where homosexuality is not a crime. His present mindset and sexual orientation do not conform to Christian doctrine which I hold to with my life.
“But I am certain that with the boldness he has made his declaration, he will still use the same attribute to serve God and boldly declare His Glory in Christ Jesus. Mark my words.”
This is also my son Dewunmi Okupe, one of Bolu Okupe's 5 other brothers.
I love all the children God has given me, Bolu…
