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.

  22. Well done Enugu state, I wish other States will take a clue from you and discourage this illicit acts.to the sex workers ,;look for decent form of living.

  23. 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?

  24. 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

  31. 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

  32. 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!

  33. A society of lost values. That’s why very young girls can jump into this type of acts. They should be rehabilitated

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

  35. Like seriously? i love that, How can Well responsible lady be selling her body as bussiness? What A world

  36. Imagine teenage girls engaging in prostitution instead of them to look for a better hand work and learn and become a better person tomorrow. I wonder how comfortable they feel by opening their legs for men. What a corrupt world.

  37. U na try. Thanks to the police force. Thank God d brothel has been sealed if not, they will continue d business

  38. our girls now choose to prostitute because of lack of job. Our leaders Should do something about it. Because prostitution is increasing every day.

  39. Young girls that are suppose to be in school,selling their bodies for money.Wish they can all be arrested and trained skillfully so that they can earn without selling their bodies

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  45. Na wao. Dis is bad. Where are the parents of dis underage girls. If they are under age d shld be under d care of d parents. Why did their parents leave dem to fend for themselves

  46. Being a sex worker is not the Best kind of job. Young girls should be encouraged to do other business to give aid them

  47. See me see wahala oo, na una bom bom they dey use? Like say una no they Carry them abeg free them jor nah hustlers dem be.

  48. Prostitution should be made a crime in Nigeria to reduce the rate such that when caught you will be prosecuted

  49. Good one,from the police, aall these young girl,are supposed yo be in school instead of selling their body that can jeopardize their future

  50. Why should they do such thing,they should leave the town immediately, to avoid not to corrupt other young once.

  51. Good development.they dnt need to corrupt the good girls in the area with their dirty business around there..welldone to the community elders

  52. Is a good one at least some girls now will learn from this, some of them will stop going on the street some of them will be learn how to be responsible for once .

  57. At this age and stage they are too young to get involved in this immoral act kudos and job well done to our policemen

  58. 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

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

  60. 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

  61. It not their force but due to Nigerian economy as zooming they have they work they will be in that situation

  62. Excellent move, nice work by our security
    This underage sex working is very bad
    They should be be pensioned to learn their lesson

  64. I thought are saints,things like brothel can never be there not even in Anambra were the ladies claims to be holy.

  65. That was a very good move taken by the residents of the community to check mate them before it escalates.

  66. that is good now, arresting them is the best, they want to teach and destroy upcoming kids

  67. We might want to say the cause maybe unemployment but the fact is we are responsible for the choice we make . I hope they learn from their mistakes
