Pornographic Materials Sellers Arrested In Lagos

It is a criminal offence to sell pornographic materials in Lagos State and  to that effect, the Lagos State Task-force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit has begun clampdown on distributors and sellers of  materials across Lagos.

Four distributors of pornographic materials Yinka Dada, 25 years; Udoh Nne, 29 years; Sylvester Obodoe, 18 years and Poopola Bamidele, 18 years. (pictured above) were arrested at Cele Bus Stop on Oshodi-Apapa Expressway on Tuesday by the task-force after the police raided the area. They will be arraigned before the Special Offences Court at the task-force yard and prosecuted for selling obscene materials.
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. (PM News)
