According to reports from Daily Trust, report and discovery reveals a brothel that engages in teenagers sex trade in Shagari low-cost area of maiduguri. Inquiries revealed how late-night visitors, including uniformed men and even the elderly, congregate there to take advantage of young prostitutes and underage girls.
According to the Daily Trust Saturday, there are numerous prostitutes and drug traffickers, and there are brothels, beer parlors, and suya locations in every corner and cranny of the streets. It was also learnt that many poor households in Maiduguri push their underage girls into sex for money as a means of survival and that most of the juvenile sex workers are survivors of Boko Haram insurgency.
One of the girls between the age of 13 to 14-year-old who spoke with Daily Trust correspondent said, “When I was a toddler, my mother passed away, leaving me in the care of our aunty, who was not treating me properly, so I went to the streets.
I can remember the number of men I have slept with. And this started when I was 13 years old. Some would pay me N2,000 or N3,000. Sometimes I give it free-of-charge to the guy I love. I make at least N20,000 daily, she said”.
Aisha Mohammed, a young lady from Chad, also said that she was introduced to prostitution here when she was 15 years old. She is now 19 years old and living on the streets without a place to call home.
When questioned about how frequently she sleeps with men for money and how they go about their business, she replied, “We would wear appealing clothes to seduce men, who take us into brothel rooms to have sex with us and give us money. On a good day, I go out with seven men, the most of whom are soldiers. They pay well, anywhere from N3,000 to N5,000. I therefore earn approximately N30,000 every day”.
