Nigerian Judge Rules That Unmarried Female Police Officers Are Not Allowed To Get Pregnant..

Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday February 21,2022 refused to nullify Regulation 127 of the Nigeria Police Force, which forbids unmarried police officers from getting pregnant.







.

The Regulation provides that “an unmarried woman police officer, who becomes pregnant, shall be discharged from the Force and shall not be re-enlisted except with the approval of the Inspector General of Police”.
.
The decision of the Court was sequel to an action filed by the Nigerian Bar Association querying the legality of the provision which, it argued, was not only in conflict with the 1999 constitution (as amended), but also amounted to discrimination against an unmarried female police officer.

    1. He is an obnoxious and sexist judge. It was even filed by Bar Association. Don't worry. It will be over turned. Association of Female Lawyers and their male supporters will fight it.

  3. But why should they fornicate in the first instance? Why should they get pregnant when they are not married.
    Why are humans making naught the laws of God?

    3. God does not pay the salaries of these women and they are not employed to uphold the laws of God but those of the constitution and country. If the laws are against the constitution, limiting the rights of citizens (policewomen) who the constitution should exist to protect, the courts ought to interpret or congress should repeal and replace them. The punishment for blasphemy in the Bible is death. How many ex-christians have you killed or had arrested?

    4. Thank you Anonymous. There is something called the separation of the church and state. Nigeria is a secular state - it is not religious leaders that rule but democratically elected officials. So why will these elected leaders impose their religious beliefs on people? Is it everyone that is religious/ a christian, a muslim in Nigeria? Why this unhealthy culture of always quoting bible instead of being logical? For the case at hand, how does her being a single mother affect her duties as a police officer? I am not aware that having a child outside wedlock is a crime. And when I say crime, I'm referring to the country's criminal and penal laws. That decision should be appealed and if possible, taken right up to the international courts.
      I don't like what I hate.

  4. Of course, an unmarried woman shouldn't get pregnant. But won't this only make desperate pregnant police women abort in order to retain their jobs?

    1. Why shouldn't an unmarried woman get pregnant? Is it a crime in Nigeria? Why do you people tie everything to religion? I can understand such in radical islamic countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE, but that's because those countries are religious states. Nigeria is a secular state and the earlier you all understand that, the better.

  5. @Stella, the reason is simple. Can a pregnant police woman pursue armed robbers. But me I have seen pregnant police men with sack-like dangling tummies. They should sack those ones too. 不不不不不

    1. They are not assigned to field duties. They do desk work while pregnant and nursing.

    2. Irrelevant question. Can all those pot-bellied overweight policemen who are not pregnant chase robbers? Why have they not been fired from the force?

  6. This regime should please come and go. Let's try another and see if sane and intelligent people will be put in rightful places

  7. I think it's too harsh, if a female police officer is advanced and wants her own child is her right to have one and mistake do happen in a relationship, it's actually her decision to make, there are many departments in the police force, they can be transferred to another department that won't require chasing or stand on the road.

  10. Non feminists, please carry your cross and enjoy it. Nobody is fighting for your right again. Since when you are desperate to marry, you will open your stinking mouth and join your useless admirer who is like this judge to insult feminists. Na kuku you go carry bele and they will sack you after. So you can go and finally be dependent on a man like this judge.

  13. Y'all should cool down, it's part of the job, not only police but all military and paramilitary personnel. Once you sign the acceptance form, which u should read btw, it's stated there.
    Okay, but there are ways to go about it, first,u can fill in married in the yearly emolument form, that is a sign that u got married. Secondly, u can orally announce that u will get married and even take a small leave. There are many ways to go about that and no one will condemn you.
    Stella, you can't see a uniformed pregnant woman cos they are free to wear civilian clothing, there are maternity uniforms but it's not that necessary.
