The Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit has begun clampdown on distributors and sellers of pornographic materials across Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

Four distributors of pornographic materials were arrested at Cele Bus Stop on Oshodi-Apapa Expressway on Tuesday by the taskforce after the police raided the area.

Those arrested will be arraigned before the Special Offences Court at the taskforce yard and prosecuted for selling obscene materials.

The sellers of the materials arrested are Yinka Dada, 25 years; Udoh Nne, 29 years; Sylvester Obodoe, 18 years and Poopola Bamidele, 18 years.

The culprits admitted that they knew hawking pornographic materials is prohibited in any part of the state.

Obodoe said he knew the act was outlawed in the state but  resorted to hawking pornographic materials to eke out a living.

He pleaded for mercy and promised not to violate the law again.

Taskforce Chairman, Bayo Sulaiman, said there had been complaints by the residents of the resurgence of pornographic materials on the streets of Lagos.

He reiterated that the government has banned the selling or distribution of such materials as the act has a negative influence on children.

“We got complaints from the residents that pornographic materials were sold in some parts of the state. We had cleared the materials off the streets of Lagos before but the traders are back to business again. We have to arrest the situation again. We are going to charge those arrested to court to serve as deterrent to others,” he said.

Good effort but they should extend the clampdown to those shanties, motels and brothels at Ajegunle, orile, olodi apapa, Goriola str, ketu oshodi etc where they go to practise after watching the film.
