The Nigeria Police Force says that having s*x in a car is not an offence.
The statement was issued by the Head, Police Complaints of the Rapid Response Unit, Mr. Abayomi Shogunle, as a response to question on twitter.
He however noted that it can be considered a crime if it happened with an underage; if it happens around a religious institution; if it happens between persons of same gender; and if it is not agreed by both parties.
Mr. Shogunle further asked anybody who is harassed for having s*x in a car to report the incident.
“No. S*x in a car in a public place is not a crime in Nigeria provided the location is not a place of worship; both persons are 18 years and above; the act is consensual (agreed to by both parties), and the parties are of the opposite s*x,” he said.
“If threatened with an arrest over the above, please report to the police,” he added.
