Eject prostitutes from Abuja streets, Senate tells police


The Senate, on Thursday, said it has given an order to the Nigeria Police Force and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps to evacuate street beggars, sex workers and the destitute from the streets of the Federal Capital Territory.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye, said this when briefing journalists in Abuja on Thursday. He was in company with the members of the committee.

Melaye said the committee, last week, summoned the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command; and the Commandant of the NSCDC, FCT Command, because the Senate was “appalled by the security situation in Abuja.”
