Many people have fallen into bad times in Nigeria and have devised means to survive. Such seems to be the story of young people who engage in all kinds of misdemeanor across the country. But a community in Anambra State are unwilling to accept that narrative.
A police raid conducted by the Anambra State Police Command on Saturday night at a brothel on Ring Road, Enugwu-Ukwu in Njikoka area of the state has led to the arrest of underage sex workers who are being allegedly patronized by older men who frequent the brothel.
The raid was informed by a joint petition by the Enugwu-Ukwu traditional authority and the Enugwu-Ukwu Community Development Union who believed it was inappropriate to have such establishment within their neighbourhood.
“We can’t be here and allow such iniquity to be happening under our watch. You need to see the level of sins these young girls and old men commit in that place on a daily basis,” a community leader said.
The brothel which is said to have been fronting as a restaurant was sealed off and the arrested suspects were transferred to the state Criminal investigation Department in Awka.
