Paul Evans Aidoo's Ghana gay spy call 'promotes hatred'

BBC News "A Ghanaian minister is 'promoting hatred' by urging people to report those they suspect to be homosexual, a human rights group has told the BBC.

Ghana's Centre for Popular Education and Human Rights said Paul Evans Aidoo's comments could endanger the nation's underground gay community.

Mr Aidoo said he wanted to rid society of gay people and take them to court.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Ghana but someone would have to be caught having sex to be prosecuted."
