Earlier on Wednesday, the Kaduna State police command said its men have arrested the organizers of the maiden edition of a nude party in the city.
The party which received a lot of publicity on social media was billed to hold on December 27, 2020. It was however canceled after much public outrage.
Special Assistant to Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai on Media, Abdullah Yunus, on Wednesday said the police had waded into the matter and that arrests had been made.
He said the police acted promptly after banners were placed on social media platforms.
“When we got to know of this development, the government was disturbed, so the governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, informed the police,” he said.
The promotion flyer for the party indicated it was expected to last till daybreak during which participants would have sex with several participants for a fee ranging from N2,000 for the popular side and N3,000 to N5,000 naira for the VIPs.
