The police in Kaduna said they have arrested the organizers of the maiden edition of a Kaduna Sex Party.
The party which received high publicity on social media was scheduled for December 27, 2020, at an undisclosed venue in the capital, it was however canceled after much public outrage.
The promotion flyer for the party said it was expected to last till daybreak during which participants would have sex for a fee ranging from N2,000 for the popular side and N3,000 to N5,000 naira for the VIPs.
Special Assistant to Governor Nasir El-Rufai on Media, Abdullah Yunus, 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.
Confirming the development on Wednesday, the state Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, said operatives were able to trace the venue and made some arrests.
He, however, failed to give further details as to the number of those arrested by the force.
The police spokesman said the command had launched an investigation to unravel those behind the sex party, saying, “We are investigating those behind the sex party and will soon give details of our findings.”
Nude parties are becoming popular in Nigeria, although most of them are organized and held in southern states including Lagos.
