As I type, 70 girls were arrested and brought to Utako Police station last night. This is in addition to the ones who were arrested on Friday night. Their offense; clubbing and in some instance, prostitution. Some have been assaulted with injuries in their vaginas.
One of the ladies arrested has a 2month old baby. She wasn’t allowed to breastfeed her baby by CRO in charge on duty despite continuous plea amidst tears. It took the intervention of a female police officer who called the DPO to overrule the decision of the inspector at the time.
The joint task force that arrested some of these girls have been allegedly molesting and assaulting them. Some even showed the bruises and bleeding in their vaginas. A capital city like Abuja needs to define its rules if it wants to be conservative or liberal. We have foreign investors coming to Abuja to do business, we have foreign development partners who want to help us with the many problems we have. Our society cannot be run like this if we must make progress.
Choose a position, make clear the rules and enforce them rightly. Some of the police officers I interacted with have said that some of the people in the joint task force even steal the phones of the “suspects” We need to legalize prostitution once and for all. But the question is, which legislator will want to sponsor such bill without the backlash from our holier than thous?
