Cross-dressing is not an offense - Delta Police PPRO

Bobrisky and James Brown Bobrisky and James Brown

The Delta State Police Command has said that cross-dressing is not an offense in Nigeria.

He said this following a post made by social media commentator, Daniel Regha who queried the Police for failing to arrest Bobrisky and James Brown who are popular cross-dressers.

Regha said this after the Delta police announced the arrest of over 60 gay men who were said to be holding a wedding in the state.

“Bobrisky, James Brown, Eni & others who champion cross-dressing are still walking free; Until these people are prosecuted, many will continue to emulate. Arresting 100 cross-dressers in Delta is one thing, but why ignore their mentors? The police should make an example of 'em,” Daniel Regha said.

Reacting to Regha's post, spokesperson of the Delta State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, stated that Bobrisky and James Brown can't be arrested because they are cross-dressers.

DSP Edafe; “Daniel, get your facts right, they were not arrested for cross-dressing, they were arrested for conducting and attending a gay wedding ceremony. Bring a part of the law that stipulates punishment for cross-dressing or categorize it as an offense.”
