Following a viral report of a lady and her lover caught having s*x in a car, who were shamed and beaten by the people of the public in a yet to be disclosed location, the police commissioner have reacted, saying there’s no crime having sex in your car.
According to reports, residents of the area noticed the unusual movement of the car that was parked in an isolated area along the street and decided to check out what is the cause, if it was a robbery or not, but to their surprise on getting closer, it happened that it was a couple having a fun time inside the car in broad daylight.
The residents bashed the couple for deciding to bring their private affair to their street rather than get a room, whereas reports said the lady is rumored to be engaged and was seen in the act, cheating with her alleged lover.
The pictures of the couple have been circulating all over the internet via the various social media platforms.
The humiliation they got sparked up a lot of reactions from various people. Some said since they are couples and it’s not an act of rape, it’s no crime. Some say it is wrong for them to get involved in such intimacy in a car.
A Twitter user @Stanley_Moses13 who must have been concerned about the whole matter took it up and asked the police ACP, Abayomi Shogunle, a very important question – he asked if it’s a crime to have sex in a car. He got a reply.

1. Location is not a place of worship
2. Parties are 18 yrs+
3. The act is consensual (agreed to by parties)
4. Parties are of opposite sex
