Police opens up on why Bobrisky, James Brown, others can’t be arrested [VIDEO]

The Nigeria Police Force has reacted to renewed calls for the arrest of Bobrisky, James Brown and other cross dressers in the country.

In an interview on ChannelsTV on Tuesday, the police spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi revealed that cross dressers cannot be arrested due to the technicalities involved.

Afejobi established that cross-dressing is not yet a punishable offence in Nigeria.

He stressed that even if there might be allegations of people who cross-dress also being a part of the LGBTQ community, there is no specific evidence to back that up, hence they cannot take them to court.

“There are some cases that are always very difficult to prove. I’m not ruling out that we have many of them,” he said.

”Let us be reasonable, you can’t have someone you want to prosecute without having credible evidences against them. I have not read anywhere where crossdressing is an offence in Nigeria.

“Some of them that are into crossdressing, the allegation is that they are into something else.

That’s where the problem lies. We need to have enough proof, credible evidence to prove that they are actually into that. All those offences are natural offences in Nigeria and they are punishable under our laws,” he added.
