The Nigeria Police Force says it is not a crime to have s£x in one’s car.
The police, however, said it could be considered a crime if one has s£x with underage person; or if the car is parked in a religious institution when the act takes place.
The Police also say car s£x is unlawful if both persons are of the same s£ex.
The Police, therefore, asked that anybody who is harassed for having s£x in a car should report the incident immediately.
The Head of the Police Public Complaints Rapid Response Unit, Mr. Abayomi Shogunle, said this while responding to a question on Twitter.
The question had been raging on social media following an incident that occurred last week wherein a couple was harassed by a mob for having s£x in a car.
Responding to a question, however, Shogunle said, “No. S£x in a car in a public place is not a crime in Nigeria, provided the location is not a place of worship; both persons are 18 years and above; the act is consensual (agreed to by parties); parties are of opposite s£x.
“If threatened with an arrest over above, please report to the Police.”
See the tweet:
