Adultery Can Land You Two Years Of Imprisonment — Police Superintendent Warns by GreatAxeMan: 8:11pm On Jul 03
A Nigerian police officer, Giwa Aliyu, has warned Nigerians on the need to stay away from adultery, as it is a criminal offense that attracts two years imprisonment.

Aliyu, who is a superintendent in the Nigeria Police Force, and Assistant Force Police Public Relations Officer in Lagos, disclosed this via his official Twitter account on Saturday.

The celebrity police officer said, ” Do you know? Adultery is a crime liable to 2 years imprisonment!”

“The “PENAL CODE LAW” section 387 & 388 state: 387. Adultery by a man 388. Adultery by a Woman”

He continued that:
“Whoever, being a man/woman subject to any customary law in which extra-marital sexual inter-course is recognised as a criminal offence, has sexual intercourse with a person who is not and whom he knows or has reason to believe is not his wife/husband, such sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape, is guilty of the offence of adultery and shall be punished with imprisonment a term which may extend to two years or with a fine or with both

The disclosure has, as expected, generated reactions from Twitter users, who took to the comment section to share opinions about the revelation by the police officer.

A Twitter user @Purity_gifts said “All Nigerian men will be in jail now if every Nigerian woman decides to report every adulterous behavior of their husbands. Infact, most will be coming out of jail and going back almost immediately ”

@ObiCubans tweeted: “With all due respect sir, So are u telling me 90% of lagos men and women would be going to prison.”

Another Twitter user @ChidinmaObasi9 enjoined people to be meticulous before they offend some certain spouses, and tweeted: “Just don’t offend the wrong spouse, because the adultery wey dey go on in Lagos State alone,Sodom and Gomorrah is just child’s play.”

@LarusOye “Tons of culprits can be found in and around the hotel buildings of two minutes distance from most Police barracks. Who will arrest them.. Even sheriffs are culpable ” he opined.

What he forgot to add is that the Penal Code only applies to Northern Nigeria and it is very Shari'a centric.

The relevant statute for Southern Nigeria is the Criminal Code.

The Penal Code allows husbands to beat their wives as a form of correction in the same way that a father beats his children or a teacher disciplines a pupil.

Section 55(1)(d) of the Penal Code of Northern Nigeria provides that an assault by a man on a woman is not an offense if they are married, if native law or custom recognizes such “correction” as lawful and if there is no grievous hurt.

Section 55 of the Penal Code is actually titled:

Correction of Child, Pupil, Servant or Wife

This will still favour men. Most men cheat to keep the family going, the moment women starts suing their husbands for cheat, men will go for baby mamas and the rate of divorce will go higher.
