COVID-19: Commercial Sex Workers not Part of Essential duties, FCTA warns

Commercial sex Workers

 The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has warned commercial sex workers, nightClub  operators, bars, operating in the territory to abide by to the COVID-19 protocols especially the 10 pm to 4 am curfew, noting that they are not on the exemption list of workers on essential duties.

This was disclosed by Chairman of the FCT Ministerial Enforcement Taskforce team on COVID-19 Restrictions, Ikharo Attah at the weekend when the team went round Kubwa, Gwarinpa, and Wuse to monitor the level of compliance by operators.

According to the chairman, “the ban on nightclubs, parks, and bars is yet to be lifted hence the need for us to sustain routine inspection and ensure compliance. We believe that if we relax too much, with the number of positive Covid-19 cases on the rise it would not be good for the city. ”



Mr. Attah expressed dissatisfaction with the high number of suspected commercial sex workers around buildings housing the nightclubs at Kubwa.

He pointed out that, “the presence of the ladies of the night is a violation of the curfew because they are not on the exemption list of essential workers. Their presence made us to carry out full checks on some nightclubs which are truly closed. At moments like this, we expect them to stop the unholy trade in their own interest because the men who may patronize them may be Covid-19 positive.”

The Chairman of FCTA appealed to FCT residents to stay at home during the curfew periods and abide by the government protocols pending all bans lifted..
