According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Nigerian Police Force, Muyiwa Adejobi, crossdressing is not illegal, to the best of his knowledge.

Seun Okinbaloye of Channel TV asked him why crossdressers are yet to be prosecuted, he claimed he does not know crossdressing is against the law.

Muyiwa Adejobito told Seun that cases of crossdressing have to be attached to a concrete crime before being prosecuted. Sighting rape as a case study, Muyiwa Adejobi said the court can dismiss these kinds of cases.

Indeed, the Nigerian constitution does not address cross-dressing, but it condemns homosexuality. Lawmakers are also working on laws to address whether or not cross-dressing should be illegal.

The question we should be asking now is, should crossdressing be made illegal?
