We Make N40,000 Daily In Anambra Brothel – S3x Workers

Twelve female sex workers rescued in a brothel in Awka, Anambra State have confessed they made between N10,000 and N40,000 daily from their clients.

The victims, aged 15 to 25 years, said they were mandated to return N10,000 to N15,000 each night and N40,000 on Sundays while each man they slept with paid them N1,000 and above.

Narrating their ordeal, the victims said they were brought to Awka by one Ifeoma and Chika from their house in Izza, Ebonyi State on the promise of securing a job for them but was later forced into prostitution.

One of them said: “The women who brought us to the brothel, seized our phones and other belongings before handing us over to another woman called Ezenwannyi who notified us that before we will be released, we must bring the sum of N150,000 or serve her for a period of one year.

“We were able to use a whistle-blowers phone to get across to our family and the whistle-blower in turn notified the Women Affairs ministry who with the help of the police burst into the brothel.”

One of the victims’ parents, Mrs Uchechi Friday, said immediately after her daughter got missing, she lodged a complaint at the Police station in Abakaliki.

“I was shocked when I got a call from my daughter which made me to seek help from the Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare,” she said.

Appreciating the Commissioner for her prompt response, Uchechi urged other parents to always be at alert for their children’s welfare and whereabouts.

Reacting, Commissioner for Women Affairs, Ify Obinabo restated the government’s resolve in ending all forms of child kidnap, trafficking and s3xual slavery in the state.
