Nigerians are free to have sex in their car in public – Police



The Nigeria Police on Tuesday revealed that having sex in a car at a public place is not a crime if done by persons within adult age in the country.

Police spokesman, Abayomi Shogunle, made the revelation in response to a question by a Twitter user @Stanley_Moses13 who asked, “Oga Yomi Shogunle please is it a crime to have sex in your car?”

According to Shogunle, “it is not an offence provided the location is not a place of worship and the persons involved are of the opposite sex that is 18 years or older.”

Currently, Nigerian law prohibits the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual) community.

“Sex in a car in a public place is not a crime in Nigeria provided; location is not a place of worship; parties are 18 yrs+; the act is consensual (agreed to by parties) [and] parties are of opposite sex,” Shogunle said.

He insisted that persons who conform to the rules he mentioned cannot be arrested by the police, adding that if such persons are threatened with an arrest, they should lodge a complaint with the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit of the Nigerian police.
