What Nigerian homosexuals should do to avoid prosecution – Dolapo Badmus

Celebrity police officer and Zone 2 police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus, has told the LGBT community in Nigeria that the country is not a place for homosexuals.

The popular policewoman disclosed this in a recent post on her Instagram page in which she stated that Nigeria is not a place for homosexuals. According to her, it is either they leave the country or face prosecution

In her post, Dolapo pointed out that the Anti-gay law signed by ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has criminalized all gay activities in Nigeria. She wrote;

If you are homosexually inclined, Nigeria ?? is not a place for you.
There is a law (Same sex Prohibition Act) here that criminalizes homosexual clubs, associations and organizations with penalties of up to 14yeats in jail.
So if you are homosexual in nature, leave the country or face prosecution.
But before you say does these 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 organizations, directly or indirectly makes public show of same-sex amorous relationship in Nigeria commits an offense 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.
