Tiwa Savage Sextape: Top Nigerian Lawyer Speaks On Legal Implications

 

“Seeing Tiwa Savage alleged nude videos fly around is quite depressing. To be clear, sharing and posting nude contents is a ‘criminal offence’ under our extant laws in Nigeria. Section 24 of the Cybercrimes Act, 2015 criminalizes leaking s*x tapes and sharing them,” Ogun wrote on his known Twitter handle on Tuesday.

“I do not Tiwa Savage and anyone whatsoever deserve this kind of blackmail. To what end? To embarrass and destroy Tiwa’s career or just to damage her character or person? I find it really distasteful, embarrassing and shameful. Grossly iniquitous!

 

“Apart from being criminal, it is a gross violation of fundamental rights. The right to dignity of human person and privacy guaranteed under section 34 and 37 of the Constitution have been maliciously violated by whosoever leaked and shared the video. Should Tiwa fold her arms?

 

“I urge that she sets the machinery of law in motion against whosoever is involved in the dastardly act. All culprits should be arrested and prosecuted accordingly so that we can learn that sharing obscene contents is not only cruel but attracts grievous legal consequences.

 

“You cannot damage a person’s character, life and career and freely get away with it. The law must take its course. #JusticeForAll.”
