Prostitution on the increase in Asaba


Increasing rate and influx of prostitutes in Asaba metropolis in Delta  State, have unsettled its residents while the residents yesterday  decried the increase as absurdity, in spite of the warnings by health  practitioners on the consequences of the vile. One of the residents,  Comrade Emeka Okonta expressed concern on the high rate of the menace,  especially with teenagers being very active  in the business.

Investigations revealed that teenage girls between 12 and 13 years  believed to be secondary dropouts, during nightfall are seen in  strategic places clad in skimpy dresses that barely cover their nudity  to woo s*xually hungry man.

Some residents who spoke to our reporter on condition of anonymity  however advised women/ladies involved in the act to have a change of  heart, considering the health, religious implications of prostitution and called on  security agents to take appropriate steps to curb the trend.

Further investigation revealed that during nightfall, these s*x  workers lurk around Texas plaza, Asaba township stadium along Nnebisi  road, Summit Junction and Cable Point looking for patrons, and in most cases they embarrass visitors coming into Asaba the first time as they  descend on them allegedly demanding s*x without the use of condom.

But the police commissioner in the state, Mr. Zanna Ibrahim in a swift reaction, said the police will soon raid them off the streets of  Asaba, adding that their recent influx constitutes ways for hoodlums  to operate.
