The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has given sex workers within Abuja metropolis a grace of two weeks to vacate the streets or face the full wrath of the law.
The order was issued by the Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Umar Shuaibu during a press conference in his office in Abuja.
Nigerian Tribune quoted him as saying that the council was working in conjunction with FCTA’s Social Development Secretariat (SDS) and security operatives in a prior two weeks sensitization campaign against the sex hawking within the city centre.
His words: “presently, commercial sex workers have started parading themselves along the major streets of the city.
“The Council in collaboration with Social Development Secretariat (SDS) and security agencies, has embarked on sensitization campaign to last for two weeks after which we shall start night patrols to rid the streets of the menace of commercial sex workers.”
On illegal structures and uncompleted buildings within the city centre, the coordinator explained that the council, through its Department of Development Control (DDC) would soon begin the demolition.
