Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), has reacted to the video of male students of Delta State University (DELSU) Abraka, wearing female attire.


As part of their final year activities, the students organised a ‘Gender-Switch Day’. The event allows male students to dress in female attire while the reverse is the case.

In the now-viral clips, the male students could be spotted wearing skirts, wigs, high heels and make-up to look like ladies.

Female students also wore male attires and costumes during the event.


The footage elicited humorous reactions on social media, with some users arguing that the students have been waiting for the opportunity to dress like the opposite gender.

Reacting to the clips, Adejobi vowed to take necessary actions concerning the activities of DELSU students.

The police PRO said he will also offer the advice needed to curb such behaviour among young people.


“Noted. I will take action on this, and give the necessary advice,” he wrote on Twitter.


In April 2022, the house of representatives considered a bill seeking to prohibit crossdressing.

The bill aims to amend the Same-Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act (SSMPA) and defines crossdressing as the “practice of wearing clothes usually worn by a person of the opposite sex”.

The proposed amendment, however, provided an exception that the clauses “shall not apply to crossdressing in the course of a stage play or in any bona fide public entertainment”.

When passed into law, Bobrisky, whose real name is Idris Okuneye, and James Brown — both Nigerian crossdressers — may face up to six months in jail if they continue with their current practice.
