sex workers arrested in lagos

August 8, 2012 – 32 Prostitutes Jailed In Nigeria

The Special Offences Court at Alausa, Ikeja, Southwest Nigeria, on Tuesday sentenced 32 sex workers to four months imprisonment for engaging in acts inimical to public peace and safety.

The 32 sex workers were among the 52 arrested by the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit last Wednesday at Toyin Street and Isaac John areas of Ikeja.

The remaining 20 others will be arraigned in court soon and may face similar fate that befell their colleagues.

The sex workers were convicted on a three-count charge and sentenced according to the gravity of each of the charges.

The Attorney General of Lagos State stands as the prosecutor.

The first count charge reads: “That you, the above named defendants on 2nd day of August, 2012 between 12.01 am and 12:30 am at Toyin Roundabout, Opebi, in Ikeja being disorderly persons placed yourselves on the road for illegal purpose to wit an offence contrary to section 166 (I) (h) Criminal Law 2011 and punishable under section 162 (2) of the same law.”

The sex workers were convicted on this count charge and sentenced to two months imprisonment without an option of fine.

The second count charge reads: “That “you, the above named defendants on the 2nd day of August, 2012 between 12:01 am and 12:30 am at Toyin Roundabout, Opebi in Ikeja conducted yourselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace and committed an offence contrary to section 166 (I) (d) of the Criminal Law 2011 and punishable under section 166 (2) of the same law.”

On this count charge, they were sentenced to one month imprisonment each with an option of N10,000 fine each.

On the third count, the victims were charged for unlawfully obstructing Superintendent Taiwo and committed an offence punishable under section 27 of the Environmental Sanitation Law and sentenced to one month imprisonment with an option of N10, 000 fine each.

The 32 convicts were led to Kirikiri Prison by the police and prison officials after they were sentenced.

Guess this will reduce prostitution in Nigeria.

      Provide meaningful employment as you will soon realize there is no need of arresting prostitutes.
