This was clear on the Thisday article however, It was misinterpreted by some online media houses and therefore caused a frenzy on social media as Nikki Laoye was made to take some heat.
Nikki Laoye was asked her opinion on the recent antigay law to which she replied:
Personally, I am all for man and woman relationships only. I believe it’s the ideal plan by God when he created humankind. I just think the law and the 14 years imprisonment are unnecessary. Nigerians, even before the law, don’t appreciate or condone the gay mode. So, to me, it doesn’t change anything.
