Whereas Mr. Shogunle held that under the Nigerian constitution, having sex in one’s car is not a crime provided the parties involved do not include an underage; or that the car is parked in a religious institution when the act takes place; or that both persons engaged in the sexual activities are of the same gender, the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Edgal insisted that sex in a car parked in any public place is a crime punishable with two years in prison under Lagos laws.
