I Sleep With 5 Men Everyday - 15-Year-Old Commercial Sex Worker Tells Police

The Lagos police command has arrested a 15-year-old sex worker in the Iyana Ipaja axis of Lagos. According to reports, the child who was arrested at a hotel where the management camps her and other underage girls for prostitution revealed that she sleeps with 5 men on a daily basis. The hotel’ owner and the manager were also arrested in the raid.

PUNCH metro reports that operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, acting on intelligence, busted the hotel on Saturday, March 10, 2018, and nabbed a 15-year-old engaging in prostitution. The child was said to have been brought to Lagos from the eastern part of the country under the pretense that she would be hooked up with a good job when she gets here. 

A certain Destiny Bassey, 19, and 18-year-old Bright Effiong, who has been living at the inn for 3-years were also picked up by the operatives.  Speaking to correspondents, the hotel manager, Thomas, said, “It is true that we provide rooms for sex workers where men visit them. We collect N5,000 from them (the sex workers) every week. We don’t give them out to men; they bring their customers themselves.” 

Monica Ita who is at large was also named in the crime as she is the one who brought the 15-year-old to Lagos.  

Speaking with the punch reporter, the 15-year old said; “I finished from primary school two years ago, but I could not continue my study because my parents died. Aunty Monica (Ita) came to the village and asked me to follow her to Abuja. She said she would get me a good job. “Some days after I got to Lagos, she took me to the hotel to do prostitution. I had yet to get a room when the police came to pick us.” Another girl who gave her name as Bassey, 25, said she slept with five men each day and charges N2,000 from each of her customers. 

Nobody forced me into prostitution. I have been hustling at the hotel for some years now. I send part of the money I make to my relatives in the village for the upkeep of my child. I don’t have parents and my husband is dead. “I sleep with five men every day, so I make as much as N10,000. I pay the hotel N5,000 every week. I wanted to save enough money for my education.” 

Another sex worker said, she sleeps with 5 men a day and charges them N1,000. “I came to the hotel last year and paid N3,000 per week for a room. I did only one round with each customer,” she added. 

Edgal Imohimi, Lagos State Commissioner of police speaking on the arrest said;  “A team of FSARS operatives stormed Collabor Hotel and arrested a 15-year-old girl. She confessed that she was brought to the hotel some weeks ago by one Monica Ita. The coordinators of the prostitution ring, Emmanuel Thomas and John Okon, were also arrested. 

The case will be charged to court at the completion of the investigation,” the CP added.
