Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Dolapo Badmus, has sent a message to the LGBT community in Nigeria, stating that the country is not a place for homosexuals. She revealed this in a post shared on her Instagram page on January 14.
Dolapo revealed that if the perpetrators of such criminal act wanted to practice at will then they should consider leaving the country as anyone found wanting will face the full extent of the law.
Badmus also mentioned that there is a same-sex prohibition act that criminalizes homosexuality with penalties of up to 14 years imprisonment. She thus warned that if anyone feels that they are homosexuality inclined, they should exit the country or face prosecution.
Her statement sparked up a heated debate online with most accusing the police of neglecting their duties as many Nigerian men now show they are homosexuals in their style.
Many mentioned self-acclaimed, female Barbie, Bobrisky as he is very well known for being a cross-dresser. There are times he has also claimed to be in relationships with men.
In response, Badmus clarified that no one will be arrested based on assumptions and dared that if anyone has damning evidence against any ‘risky’ man, they should step forward. Read her post below:
