Dolapo Badmus, Zone 2 police Public Relations Officer, has warned Nigerians of the LGBT community to either change their ways or leave the country because what they practice is not accepted in the country. Badmus disclosed this on instagram. She wrote;
If you are homos-xually inclined, Nigeria ?? is not a place for you. There is a law (Same s-x Prohibition Act) here that criminalizes homos-xual clubs, associations and organizations with penalties of up to 14years in jail.
So if you are homos-xual 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-s-x 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-s-x marriage contract or civil union faces up to 14 years imprisonment.
All LGBT candidates in Nigeria should beware
