Commercial Sex Hawkers Arrested in Lagos -Nigeria

52 Sex Workers Arrested in Ikeja on Wednesday Night..

... Officials of the Lagos State Task force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit last night stormed Isaac John and Toyin Street in Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria and arrested 52 suspected commercial sex hawkers.

The task force acted on a report published in The NEWS magazine of this week about commercial sex hawkers taking over the area and that yesterday was going to be the ladies’ night.

The task force officials first of all carried out a survey of the area around 10 pm and went back to the office to strategise only to strike around 12 am and arrested the suspected prostitutes whose ages range between 18 and 34 years.

They were taken to the task force office in a Black Maria. The raid was massive as several armed policemen carried out the onslaught.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.
