The Bauchi state government has disclosed plans to conduct a headcount of commercial s3x workers in the state with a view to having accurate data on them. Aminu Balarabe-Isah, Permanent Commissioner in charge of Hisbah and Sharia implementation, made this known during a sensitization workshop organized for commercial sex workers in the state on Monday, April 12.

Isah said the information generated from the exercise would help the commission in taking measures aimed at discouraging them from continuing with their ‘dangerous’ trade. According to Isah, the state government's plan is to organise empowerment programmes for the sex workers and then provide them with capital to start small scale businesses.

He explained that investigations conducted by his agency indicated that most of the s3x workers took to prostitution as a result of illiteracy, poverty or maltreatment meted on them by their step-mothers.

He said that minor family squabbles also contributed to their decision to take to prostitution, assuring that government would make efforts to reunite them with their parents. Speaking on behalf of the other sex workers, Hafsatu Azare, said they are all willing to quit the trade on the condition that the Federal government empowers them economically.
