Authorities in Abuja have reportedly given commercial sex workers in the city a 2-day ultimatum to leave the city or be prosecuted.
According to City People News, individuals who patronize the sex workers were not left out as they were also threatened with death sentence.
This action was reportedly instigated by Secretary for Social Development, Blessing Onuh, after she visited several locations that experience high sex trafficking activity.
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.
The rate of prostitution has become of a serious concern for the FCT authority as it putting measures in place to put a end to the business in the city.
