Prostitution in Nigeria
Haven known what prostitution is, let's quickly look at it's nature in Nigeria. I found some good source that described the nature of prostitution in Nigeria , According to WikiPedia
'' Prostitution in Nigeria 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 penalized under sections 223, 224, and 225 of the Nigerian Criminal Code".
"Even though Nigerian law does not legalize commercial sex 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".
"The Nigeria criminal system prohibits national and trans-national trafficking of women for commercial sex or forced labor. Nigeria is a signatory to the 2000 United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children''. (Source : Wikipedia )
How prostitutes are seen in Nigeria
It is not hidden that even men who patronize prostitutes usually do this at night time , this is because some of them are definitely going to be ashamed when the cat is let out of the bag.
prostitutes are condemned to be awful in our societies, they are seen as immoral and devalued people. For this reasons , no man in his right senses will want to be identified with a prostitute talk less of being a husband to one.
Can you marry an Ex- Prostitute?
This question randomly pops into my mind so i decided to ask my friends on Facebook and here's what he has to say.
" Yes I can. Why? If she gives me true love, and she is ready to settle down, then who am I to castigate her.
Her past is her past, it's her future and her resolution not to go back that's important and necessary "
If the love is there then why not ? Well I don't think I can do that .
