“Adultery is no longer a criminal offense in our country. Therefore, criminalizing it is an act of unprofessionalism and abuse of authority, which the force cannot tolerate. We strongly condemn the criminalization of civil matters in police.”
Enanga warned married persons to respect the sanctity of marriage whether in estranged, complex or sensitive relationships. He advised them to use lawful means, instead of smearing their lovers’ reputation.
He noted that whereas adultery is not a crime, they can, however, use it as a ground for civil processes like divorce, separation, custody of children and sharing of property.
Enanga said that the role of police in civil conflicts is to protect life and property.
“However, there are other circumstances, were victimized married person, can report their matters to police. These include complaints of elopement, where one elopes with a married person and stays with them. Trafficking in persons, where a person uses their power or positions of superiority and takes advantage of the victim’s vulnerability or disability. And under domestic violence, where the victim is tortured physically or emotionally by the sexual behavior of a married partner,” Enanga said.
He, therefore, warned police not to handle adultery cases in any way. This is especially if there is no criminal activity in it.
