Zone 2 police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus, has told the LGBT community in Nigeria that the country is not a place for homosexuals.
In her post, Dolapo pointed out that the Anti-gay law signed by ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has criminalized all gay activities in Nigeria. Read her previous post here
After she shared the post, many Instagram users then inquired why the police hasn’t gone after a certain “risky” homosexual.
She gave her response as thus,
”In view of my last post about h*mosexuals and the law binding them in Nigeria ??. Some people have been mentioning one particular name (very risky though) to be one. Kindly be informed that if you have any evidence and/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’s based on evidence otherwise it will be treated as hearsay which is not admissible in law court. Until then let’s keep our fingers crossed and not keep our lives risky! Thank you”.
