The Supreme Court of Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday declared that women in Nigeria who have clitorises longer than 7,5 centimetres (3 inches) can now be legally considered as men.
This was a very controversial ruling which however led to jubilation
A 36-year old Isioma Adeyemi had requested to change her legal status from female to male due to the length of her clitoris.

This request was however granted by five-member Supreme Court panel, led by Mary Odili who ruled that her request was “perfectly sound and legitimate”, ordering that her legal status be changed immediately.
