In Nigeria, prostitution is illegal in all Northern states that practice Islamic penal code. In Southern Nigeria, the activities of pimps or madams, underage prostitution and the operation or ownership of brothels are penalised under sections 223, 224, and 225 of the Nigerian Criminal Code.

Even though Nigerian law does not legalise commercial s*x work, it is vague if such work is performed by an independent individual who operates on his or her own accord without the use of pimps or a brothel.

There are reasons why some ladies take to harlotry and most of the reasons may not just be far from the realities in the country — poverty and unemployment topping the list.

The s*x workers are living in squalid conditions in Bayan Gari – a suburb in Bauchi metropolis with brothels as breeding ground for child prostitutes. Oak TV took a trip to Bayan Gari in order to explore the slum which is home to many social vices such as prostitution and drug trafficking.

During the tour, they interfaced with prostitutes in the slum and men who patronise them. In Bayan Gari, video clips show where s*x workers as young as 14 are trying to earn money to survive, entertain around five clients a day.

These poverty-stricken s*x workers charge clients between one and five thousand naira (N5000), depending on duration of service.

A 16-year-old s*x worker (name withheld), who granted audience, divulged that she turned to prostitution at the age of 14 in order to avert marrying a 40-year-old man she had no affection for. At 16, she is a mother with no form of formal education.

Another respondent, a s*x worker in her prime, disclosed she is the only female child of her parents who grew up amongst guys and feels comfortable being with the opposite s*x.

She lives with a man who isn’t her husband but lets him enjoy all privileges that come with marriage. He provides her with everything she needs and desires.

She also practices prostitution in secrecy and entertains a maximum of two clients per day, billing between three and four thousand naira (N3000 – N4000) for short-time while an overnight stay attracts ten thousand naira (N10000). She admitted to using protection whilst having s*x with ‘customers’ but not with her boyfriend.
