The rate at which young ladies are becoming prostitutes openly in Asaba, Delta State, is become a serious cause for concern to many residents, who are condemning the open show of shame.
One of the residents, Comrade Emeka Okonta expressed concern on the high rate of the menace, especially with young girls being very active in the dirty acts.
Even teenage girls believed to be in secondary school, during nightfall are seen in strategic places clad in skimpy dresses that barely cover them, seeking to sleep with men for money.
Some residents who spoke to Leadership, however advised women/ladies involved in the act to have a rethink, considering the health, religious implications of prostitution and called on security agents to take appropriate steps to curb the menace.
It was revealed that during nightfall, these ladies, young and old, lurk around Texas plaza, Asaba township stadium along Nnebisi road, Summit Junction and Cable Point looking for patrons, and out of desperation some of them even offer themselves to men, openly.
Delta state police commissioner, Zanna Ibrahim in a swift reaction, said the police will soon raid them and take them off the streets of Asaba, and advised parents in the state to teach their daughters morals.
