Maiduguri Prostitutes set to embrace remote-work as Governor orders demolition of brothels, others
The Executive Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, has ordered the demolition of illegal brothels and criminal dens notorious for prostitution , gangsterism and other illicit activities in Maiduguri, the state capital.
The governor gave the order during a visit to ‘Bayan Quarters’, a settlement near railway staff quarters in Maiduguri.
He expressed concern about the rise in criminal activities associated with the brothels, saying they must be demolished within 72 hours.
“The government has been duly informed of the activities that are going on here; this settlement is completely illegal.
People are killed here; this place serves as a breeding space for insurgents. Therefore, I have directed that everybody vacate the place.
I understand that this land was approved by the Borno State Government to be used by the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), but unfortunately, it’s been rented out illegally with all forms of criminal activities taking place.
For this reason, the government has revoked the earlier approval, and henceforth, the land belongs to the Borno State Government,” he said.
