His Twitter following has dropped from the 1.7million to under 700,000 within few hours of posting the pro-LGBTQI comment.
He had said in an Instagram post that “We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our LGBTQIA plus community in Ghana,.
Essien’s comments came after Police later raided the LGBTQI centre last week and close down the office.
He added: “Ghana, support equality.”
Essien has however pulled down the post from his Instagram page.
Meanwhile, the former Chelsea star has deleted the Instagram post supporting gay rights in Ghana after massive public backlash on social media.
