Gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi has cried out after he was followed about by some Nigerian anti-corruption officials at an anti-corruption conference held in Denmark. According to Bisi Alimi, he felt their presence around him was intimidating.
One of his followers suggested that they might be trying to intimidate him so he won’t say anything bad about Nigeria at the conference, to which Bisi agreed.

You know you are either important or a threat when you have your country Anti Corruption officials following you around at an Anti Corruption conference.
See not that I give a two cent, but I will also like to say, I find their presence around a little unsettling.
Aside from that, it is really nice to see LGBT issues being linked to global corruption conversation for the first time and thanks to Matt Beard and AllOut for giving me and Bisi Alimi Foundation the opportunity to speak on this issue at the Transparency International Conference.
At least, I know one thing for sure, I wont go missing in Denmark.
I will be honest and say that I for once feel really threatened by this very subtle act of aggression I am experiencing. They really dont have to be around me, they really dont have to talk to me, they really dont have to sit close to me in every session but they are. This is a conference of over 1500 people, and the fact that i kept seeing them everywhere I turn is not a mistake or a coincidence.
