No More Sex Workers and street Hawkers In Abuja

**they are social menace we arrest and prosecute them.

The Head of Information and Outreach Programmes of the the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB ), Mr Joe Ukairo on has announced that Commercial sex work, street begging and trading constituted a social menace and could not be allowed; more so they are prohibited under the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB ) Act of 1997.

Ukairo made the clarification against the background of appeals by hawkers for the provision of alternative location to enable them to conduct their business activities and earn a living.
“There is no sentiment; street begging, trading and prostitution are prohibited under the AEPB Act of 1997 Section 35.

“These are social menace; the Social Development Secretariat has done so much trying to rehabilitate the commercial sex workers and beggars.
“We arrest and prosecute them and hand them over to the Society Against Prostitution and Child Labour, which takes them to the rehabilitation centres".
