The  Nigeria Police High Command has launched a manhunt for a lady who claimed to have slept with a dog for N1.7 million.
 
The lady on Saturday had made a viral TikTok video, claiming she did it for N1.7m. 
   
The slim, light-skinned lady with TikTok user ID @Veegodess trended for hours on social media after saying there was no big deal about what she did.
  
Reacting, Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Chief Superintended of Police (CSP), Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said posting bestial-natured videos online won’t be tolerated.
   


He described the development as absurd, with the assurance that the police are already on the trail of the suspect.
   
Adejobi called on the public to assist the authorities with useful information that could lead to the arrest of the lady.
  
“I really want us to take necessary action on these ladies that are involved in unnatural offences and post the same online. We want to urge you to give us any useful information on how to get them. We need to fish them out.  She will be questioned whether joking or not,” Adejobi said.
 
The Criminal Code Act and the Penal Code Act criminalise sleeping with an animal and the act S attracts 14 years imprisonment in Nigeria.

MEANWHILE, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has assured Lagos residents of adequate security.
  
He said all Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers  (DPOs), Tactical Commanders and Intelligence Officers have been directed to review their deployment of human and operational resources, especially at identified strategic and vulnerable points across the state.
 
This, he said, was to forestall any breakdown of security; while deployed officers have been charged to remain professional, courteous but firm in the discharge of their duties.

The CP assured that the security architecture would be closely monitored and reviewed as required in a bid to sustain the existing peace in Lagos State.
   
Lagos Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Superintendent of Police (SP), Benjamin Hundeyin, who disclosed this in a statement, advised residents to be security conscious, vigilant and report any suspected incident or happening to the nearest police station.
