Penalty For Recruiting Under Age Persons For Pornographic Performance | #OBSCURELEGALFACTS BY AROME ABU

In Nigeria, it is an offence to recruit any person under the age of 18 years for the production of pornography or for pornographic performances.

Nigeria has no national laws prohibiting indulgence in pornographic film.

However, indecent exposure is proscribed under Section 26 of the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act 2015, which applies only in the Federal Capital Territory. 


Imprisonment for a term of not less than 7 years and to a fine of not less than N1,000,000.00. 

See Section 17 of the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition), Enforcement and Administration
