"Nobody Can Arrest Bobrisky Just Because He Said He Is Gay" - Prominent Lawyer, Festus Keyamo

Following the news of self-acclaimed Nigerian male barbie doll, Bobrisky‘s arrest last night, some Nigerians have linked his arrest to a now deleted post where he stated that he is g*y.

Thought when the effeminate was interviewed and he alleged that serial entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani, was behind his arrest, some Nigerians have still held on to their belief that his arrest was because he publicly came out as g*y.

We reached out to frontline lawyer and human rights activist, Festus Keyamo, to find out if it is legal for Bobrisky, or anyone for that matter, to be arrested for publicly stating that they are g*y.

He’s quoted:
Quote
‘For me, you have to be caught in the act. Yes, it may amount to corrupting public moral when you go on social media to announce you are g*y but we are talking about the law here and not sentiment and if we are talking about the law, the person has to be caught in the act. Except the person says he is g*y and refers to a particular g*y act that can be verified. For example, if Mr.A comes out on social media to say I am a thief, he cannot be arrested because his declaration that he is a thief cannot be linked to a particular act of stealing. Anybody can come out to say I am a kidnapper but if you do not link that declaration to a particular incident that happened, that person cannot be arrested. So also, if a person comes out to say I am g*y and you can’t link it to a particular g*y act that actually happened or that he was caught in the act, I think it is wrong for such a person to be arrested.You can only be arrested when you consent to the act that can be verified. He can be arrested for saying that he is g*y but it must be linked to a g*y act that happened. You cannot be arrested for just saying you are g*y’
