ACP Abayomi Shogunle said prostitution is a crime under the law and a sin in line with the beliefs of Abuja residents. He added that prostitutes spread HIV and it is clearly against our culture as a people. They don’t even pay tax from their daily proceed he concluded.

The police also confirmed that only 65 women were arrested at the club raid not 100 as widely spread. Spokesman of FCT Social Welfare Secrétariat also denied allegation of sexual assault on the women during the arrest.
