Kyari Ibn Umar El-Kanemi shehu of Bama, Borno State, has banned maiduguri sex workers.
Mr Abba Shehu-Umar, Emir’s personal secretary, announced this in a statement made at Maiduguri on Monday
The Emir cries at an increase in the number of commercial sex workers, despite restrictions on illegal Brothels and commercial sex workers in the Galadima an Baga road region in Maiduguri.
The emir warned that those found to be engaging in the act or other forms of criminality would be prosecuted, while their premises would be demolished in accordance with the state government’s policy on such illegal structures in Maiduguri.
The statement read in part: “My emirate would not condone illicit activities and other forms of criminality allegedly perpetrated by the sex workers.
“You may recall that these girls caused serious criminality in the suburb of the state capital, they engaged in open prostitution, child trafficking, drug abuse and other forms of criminality in the metropolis.
“The state government constituted a high powered committee to address the nefarious activities, which led to the demolishing of several hotels, brothels and hideouts in Maiduguri.
“When their opportunities for the nation’s capital diminished, they explored other places in the local government council.
“The trend is unacceptable, I ordered the Village Head to be vigilant and proactive, therefore such an attitude would not be promised,” El Kanemi said.
