Mr Abayomi Shogunle, the Head of the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force, has explained that having a roll in the hay in a car in a public place is not a crime in Nigeria.
There has been a growing debate on social media in recent times on whether or not having the act inside one’s car is a crime or not in Nigeria following the embarrassing treatment meted out to a couple caught romping in a car.
However, Shogunle has cleared the air in the matter.
Shogunle made the statement when a Twitter user asked him “please is it a crime to have s3x in your car?”
The police officer was emphatic in his response. He wrote ” NO.
S3x in a car in a public place is not a crime in Nigeria provided;
1. Location is not a place of worship
2. Parties are 18 yrs+
3. The act is consensual (agreed to by parties)
4. Parties are of opposite s3x
