Umar Muda, a member of the House of Representatives has introduced a bill to prohibit cross-dressing in Nigeria.

The bill was read on the floor of the House on Tuesday. It seeks to ban cross-dressing with the exemption of those using it for entertainment.

In recent times, some crossdressers have become very popular in Nigeria, especially, Instagram entertainer, Bobrisky.

With this proposed law, crossdressers now risk 6 months in prison if passed.

The bill seeks to amend the same-sex marriage (prohibition) act of 2013 by including cross-dressing as one of the offences under the act.
