Commercial sex workers in Abuja have reportedly been given a 2-day ultimatum to leave the city or be prosecuted.

Authorities have also threatened to punish individuals who patronize the sex workers with a death sentence, City People News reports.

These stringent measures were said to have been formulated by Secretary for Social Development, Blessing Onuh, after she visited several locations that experience high sex trafficking activity.

Onuh noted that “prostitution has metamorphosed from the conventional sedentary practice in local brothels to a sophisticated cartel of ‘runs babes’ and the corporate realm.”

She is said to have described the executive/corporate prostitutes as those found in luxury hotels around Abuja, and in homes of wealthy residents that live in upscale neighbourhoods like Port Harcourt Crescent, off Gimbiya Street, Garki; Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent and Sheraton Junction in Wuse II.

Onuh also mentioned that the prostitutes are even now in poor neighbourhoods like Nyanya, Gwagwa, and Mararaba, and that little girls are now joining the sex workers.

    Death sentence for consensual sex? Really?! And pedophiles get just 5 years in prison. #smh. Giving sex workers just 2 days to relocate from Abuja is not going to curb sex work. The girls will go underground as usual, and resurface when we are focused on other issues. Provide viable alternatives, and a lot of them would quit. And legalise sex work. Sex workers get to pay tax that hopefully, will be used to provide social services to everyone, sex workers inclusive. On a side note, it’s sad how some women think of the harshest measures when other women are at the receiving end.

    A neighboring state should emulate parts of Nevada that have licensed prostitution. Since they are driving the supply out of Abuja, supply elsewhere will also take the demand (revenue & profits) elsewhere

    I truely appreciate how nevada aproaches the issue of prostitution in the state, cos face it conservative approach to prostitution never work and usually turn them into syndicate crime organisation.the best is soften the rules and make them pay taxes like every other worker does, cos what they do is also a job.remember , it is the oldest profession in the world.it is hard to erase or stamp out.so nigeria should learn from othet countries on how to deal with this .netherland system is also very good though some will see it as too liberal but, it actually work like magic
