People don ask us this question plenty time for our #KnowYourRightsNigeria radio show wey we do every week for UNILAG 103.1 FM. The law talk sey na only woman must search another woman[1] and the search self suppose by a one wey dey decent[2].  We suppose let you know sey wetin we dey talk here na woman body o. a man fit search a woman bag, purse and other things wey she carry. No law talk sey a woman no fit search a man o but in practice, na man dey search man but the search suppose dey decent.
