Managing Partner of Universe Attorneys, Akande Paul, has warned against sleeping with an animal in Nigeria.

The warning came amid concerns over a trending video of a dog having an affair with a lady.

The video was said to be recorded in Nigeria but we could not immediately confirm its authenticity.

According to Akande, the Criminal Code Act and the Penal Code Act criminalise sleeping with an animal.

He explained that sleeping with an animal attract 14 years imprisonment in Nigeria.

He said, “It is a Criminal offence for anybody in Nigeria to have s3…x with lower animals like dogs, horses, cats, cows, etc.

“Oral s3…x (‘receiving head’) from an animal is a s3…xual act which constitutes s3…xual offence.

“In Nigeria, it is an offense to engage in bestiality (having canal knowledge of an animal).

“The punishment is 14 years imprisonment upon conviction based on Section 214 of the Criminal Code Act; Section 284 of the Penal Code Act.”

Section 214 of Criminal Code Act states that “Any person who- (1) has carnal knowledge of any person against the order of nature; or (2) has carnal knowledge of an animal; or (3) permits a male person to have carnal knowledge of him or her against the order of nature; is guilty of a felony, and is liable to imprisonment for fourteen years.”
