Police raid brothel in Anambra, arrest under-aged sex workers

A group of under-aged girls suspected to be commercial sex workers have been arrested in a brothel in Anambra State, located along Ring Road, Enugwu-Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area of the State, The Nation reports.

The brothel, popularly known as Venue Spot, disguised as a restaurant, was reportedly raided by the police following a tip-off by concerned indigenes of the community.

It was learnt that the action was occasioned by a joint petition by the Enugwu-Ukwu Traditional Authority and Enugwu-Ukwu Community Development Union (ECDU) to the police headquarters in Awka.

The petition alleged that commuters plying that area were being harassed and embarrassed by underage commercial sex workers.

The President General of the Community, Comrade Bonny Ozo- Nkwuaku, who supervised the raid, warned that Enugwu-Ukwu has no place for such illegal acts which, he said bred criminality and corruption of morals among youths in the area.

“Enugwu-Ukwu people are known for their industrial spirit and enterprise. We live very decent lives and are law abiding. We can’t tolerate such businesses in our community.

“We have also discovered that most of the commercial sex workers and their patrons are non Enugwu-Ukwu indigenes. We can’t allow them to come and soil the name of our town,” he stressed.

The brothel was immediately sealed after the raid while the suspects and their patronisers were taken to Awka to be arraigned in court.

  13. People complain it’s lack of job that cause people to engage in so many crime,well it’s simply laziness on the side of our youth,if there’s no work go learn hand work,it better than destroying your body for money,i wonder how much they make there?

  14. That is sign of end time everywhere, under aged girls selling their body for money, and the communities took a very bold step to stop such immoral act

  15. I commend the police force for job weldone..keep it up.the government need to do more to enlighten the dangers and consequences of prostitution and set more strict policies to counter prostitution

  16. Young girls that supposed to go and learn hand work or do something else that will help their life
    Nice petition to them jor

  17. That is a good move by the community so that their indigenes wont be corrupted too but i want to believe that these commercial sex workers too are also helpless and needed to fend for themselves.But still not right

  18. See how these young girls are destroying their future in the pursuit of money,thanks to Nigerian police that apprehended them, keep doing your work.

  19. When there is hunger in the community, lot of people expecially the innocense ones are forced to engage in any thing just to survive, goverment should provide us with work, lot of these nonsense will stop

  20. Most times it is usually non indigene that do come to some communities and spoil their name and reputation! I salute those behind the raid!

  21. Thank God for the community leaders who promptly inform and involve the police. That brothel can corrupt their own children.

  25. see what immorality have couse the young ones to do, all the name of looking for money, the govt should try and create job to avert such situation.

  26. That’s very good, cos next thing we’ll hear will be young girls promised heaven and earth to leave their parents and end up in prostitution.

  27. Things are really going out of hand, the youths are in dare need of employment, it will help stop all this Prostitution, ritual and 419

  37. This kind of business is absurd and endangering. The rate at which young ones search for money is alarming and reasonable business should be done to earn it

  38. The government should empower those girls and not just release them into the society. Punishing them won’t change the act.

  39. As long as they are not forced against their will to sell their body
    Let it remain their business
    And if they had sufficient resources to live on
    They wouldn’t be doing that
    This is a call to the government

  40. Excellent move, nice work by our security
