under-age girls forced into prostitution

People have nowadays been corrupted by greed for money that they are now forcing little girls supposed to be in class 8 into been commercial sex workers…. Such a case was discovered in Nigeria::

Men of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State Command, have rescued a 13-year old girl in a hotel room where she was forced to sleep with different men daily and thereafter paid N150,000 as monthly returns to her employer, identified as Rosemary Udoh.

Rosemary, 33, and the hotel manager, Fatai Ahmed, 46, have been…
arrested and charged to Ikeja magistrates’ court sitting in Ojokoro for abducting and forcing the little girl into prostitution.

The victim confessed to the police that she slept with at least 10 men daily in order to raise the N150,000 for her employer and payment for the hotel accommodation.

“She said that men paid her N500 for a round of sex and the hotel collects all the money, deducts some for the hotel room and keeps the rest for her madam who usually comes in the morning to collect it”.

She was rescued after spending six months in the hotel at Otta where her madam, who lives at No.16 Aderupoko street,  Ahmadiya, on the outskirts of Lagos, took her for prostitution.

It was gathered that Rosemary had gone to her home town in Akwa Ibom State and brought the girl to Lagos under the false pretence of sending her to school. She had told the girl’s parents that she wanted to help them train the girl and send her to school in Lagos.

But not quite long after she brought her to Lagos, Rosemary started preparing her for prostitution. She reportedly bought her sexy wears and body cream before taking her to the hotel and handing her over to Ahmed, the manager.

While she was in the hotel, the ‘small’ girl was not allowed to have contact with any of her relations.

Luck ran out on them when police raided the hotel and discovered that she was under aged. The girl told the police what happened.

Consequently, Rosemary and the manager were arrested and charged to court for abducting and forcing an under aged girl into prostitution. At the court, they pleaded not guilty.

The presiding magistrate, Mr. K. O. Ogundare granted them bail in the sum of N100,000 with two responsible sureties in like sum. The matter was adjourned for further hearing.

such cases have been reported all over the world and you as a citizen who values children should always be vigilant to ensure such cases don’t occur on your watch…
