The police have declared their intention to take legal action against individuals who, in a widely circulated video on social media, identified themselves as members of the LGBTQ community.

The video featured Nigerians participating in the “Of Course” challenge on TikTok, openly discussing their sexual orientations and addressing misconceptions about them.

On Wednesday, the Nigeria Police Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, strongly condemned the actions of the self-proclaimed LGBTQ members, deeming them “disgusting and destructive.” Adejobi asserted that such actions are considered criminal offenses and are punishable under Nigerian law. He stated, “We are on this clip to take necessary action according to the provisions of the law in Nigeria. These are unnatural offenses and are totally condemned. It is even disgusting, evil, and destructive.”

It is crucial to note that LGBTQ remains constitutionally unrecognized in Nigeria, and engaging in activities related to it can lead to serious consequences. Violators of the anti-LGBTQ laws in the country face the prospect of a prison term of up to 14 years.
