Leave Nigeria now or suffer – police tell homosexuals



The Public Relations Officer of the Zone 2 Police Command , Mrs Dolapo Badmos , has asked homosexuals to flee the country or face the law .She also called on Nigerians who have evidence against homosexuals to come forward with such pieces of evidence .

Badmos said this in a post on her official Instagram handle .

She said , “ If you are homosexually inclined , Nigeria is not a place for you . There is a law ( Same Sex Prohibition Act ) here that criminalises homosexual clubs , associations and organisations with penalties of up to 15 years in jail .
“ So , if you are a homosexual in nature, leave the country or face prosecution . But before you say , ‘ does this matter?’ Kindly note that anything against the law of the land is criminal and all crimes will be punished accordingly no matter how small you think it is .

“ The law says a person who registers , operates or participates in gay clubs , societies or organisations , directly or indirectly makes a public show of same -sex amorous relationship in Nigeria commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a term of 10 years . Anyone convicted of entering into a same -sex marriage contract or civil union faces up to 14 years imprisonment . All LGBT candidates in Nigeria should beware . ”

Badmos ’ post drew many reactions on her social media page .

While some condemned the police for going after homosexuals and ignoring more pressing issues , others accused the police of being partial , pointing out that a cross – dresser , who now identifies as a transgender, had become a celebrity but was left alone because he was rich .

In her response , the police spokesperson said , “ In view of my last post about homosexuals and the law banning them , some people have been mentioning one particular name ( very risky though) to be one .

“ Kindly be informed that if you have any evidence or exhibits that can establish the case against him / her , please don’ t hesitate to bring it up for a comprehensive investigation . Prosecution and conviction of suspects are not based on imagination rather it is based on evidence otherwise it will be treated as hearsay which is not admissible in court .

“ Until then , let us keep our fingers crossed and not keep our lives risky. Thank you . ”
