The National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) has on Thursday, November 26, divulged a shocking discovery of about 3,500 male sex workers in Abuja.
According to Idoko, the most surprisingly disturbing aspect of the discovery is the identification of 60% of the male sex workers being married men.
The NACA Boss stressed that this trend will cause grave danger to their spouses that might be exposed to Human Immuno-Deficiency Virus (HIV).
Idoko said “We found that if we focus our resources in three council areas of Gwagwalada, Bwari and Abuja Municipal, we would have covered a greater population of persons with HIV within the area.”
NACA’s DG noted that the agency was working hard to identify areas where these male sex workers ply their trade in order to end this trend.
