Prostitutes Have Taken Over The Streets Of Abuja -Dino Melaye
The Senate has mandated the Abuja Police Commissioner and Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to flush out beggars, hoodlums and commercial sex workers, from the streets of the FCT, according to Chairman, Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye.
Melaye said this move was taken due the worsening insecurity in the FCT and the need to take steps to curb the trend.
He said, “Last week we summoned the commissioner of police FCT and the commandant of NSCDC because as a committee and the Senate we are appalled with the security situation in Abuja.
“We are also very uncomfortable with the number of hoodlums on the streets of Abuja. We have beggars, destitute, commercial sex workers spread across every nook and cranny of the city and we have given a marching order to the commissioner of police and the commandment of NSCDC to clear them.
“We have also instructed the FCT to provide logistics for the immediate evacuation of all dissidents, beggars including those little boys who claim they are helping you to clean your glass but add aditional dents to your cars.”
He said, “We discovered that despite the fact that hundreds of millions spent from budgetary provisions of FCT annually paid to contractors for the maintenance of street lights and the maintenance of all the streets and environment of Abuja is not yielding any positive results.”
