Commercial sex workers, otherwise known as prostitutes are angry, their anger, we gathered is not unconnected with the ongoing Ramadam fasting being embarked on by Muslim faithful across the country.
According to those in the business of bed-to-wealth, the fasting period has crippled their business. When Dailypost visited one of their bases in Ejigbo, a suburb of Lagos, the visibly angry ladies were seen siting at different locations, discussing their fate.
On enquiry, a lady identified as Rose from Edo lamented, “Oga, since morning, na only one person I don do, unlike before, I for don do like 16 or so. Na Raamadam . ” She said.
When prodded further, the enraged lady said, “Oga I no come count bridge for Lagos, if u wan support my ministry tell me, I go ‘do’ you well.”
In Ikotun, prostitutes lamented that their customers no longer pick their calls, “since Ramadan fasting started, my regular customer, Waidi refused picking my calls, and its painful and unfair. They should consider our own side too”, said Joy, a native of Akwa Ibom.
When asked about her service, the fair-complexion lady who said she’s a drop out of Delta State University, said, “it depends, at times, most of these big men don’t negotiate, if you do them well, they can give you even 50k per night. Now we don’t have choice because of Ramadan, we can agree for even 200 for a round.
Our efforts to reach the president, National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (NANP), Lagos state chapter were fruitless as the lady was said to have travailed out of the country.
