Prostitutes detain customers in Delta over unpaid bills
Sex workers operating around Summit Road, Asaba, on Thursday detained three men for allegedly failing to pay their bills after they were serviced for hours.
The sex workers had told the clients that a round of sex was N3,000 while 'Till Day Break' ranges between N7,000 and N8,000, depending on negotiations.
But trouble started after the victims pressured the sex workers into having sex with them for a part payment of N2,000 for each round, promising that they will pay the balance after the action.
After a long-drawn haggling session, the sex workers grudgingly accepted the deal, warning that their failure to pay the balance will attract trouble for them.
However, the men could not come up with the balance afterward.
'We manhandled the men and detained them when they tried to prove logic for us,' said Silver Ogieriakhi, one of the sex workers.
Investigation revealed that the brothel located around the State Ministry of Information, Summit Road, is a hive of activity at night.
The brothel also features strippers who allegedly smoke indian hemp and drink freely.
The Manager of the brothel, Mr. Chinedu Emeka, who confirmed the incident, said, 'The victims confessed that they were married men who wanted fun and were having insufficient funds to make up, instead of begging our workers, they resorted to a shouting match with them and they were detained in their rooms before a good Samaritan paid for them.'
Sources close to the 'A' Division Police Station in Asaba, said the brothel which operates as a guest house had been raided several times and many of the workers arrested.
The state Police Commissioner, Mr. Alkali Baba Usman, 'We are raiding many of the brothels soon because people with questionable minds are their patrons, we will bring them to book as part of our strategies to rid the state of criminally minded persons.' – Punch.
