The Ebola scourge has struck fear in many hearts and Nigerian prostitutes have said that this is affecting their business. The $ex workers, under the umbrella of the Association of Nigerian Prostitutes, sent out a warning to all the women of the night in the country. This was disclosed via a statement prepared after a meeting of the organization in Lagos on Monday. It reads:
“Some of us met yesterday in Lagos to discuss on how to sensitize our members against the disease and we are calling on them to be very careful, if possible ‘hang boot’ for now till the federal government finds a lasting solution to the killer virus. “Once a member contracts the dreaded virus, the entire country is in trouble, and to avoid that, we want both customers and patrons to be very careful.
”We will still be meeting in Agege, Lagos on Wednesday (today) to campaign against the killer disease, but we are still using this medium to call on all members of ANP to be guided accordingly as the government battles to conquer the disease.” Meanwhile a prostitute in Lagos, identified as Franca, expressed her anger at Liberian, Patrick Sawyer to Daily Post.
She said: “That Sawyer abi na Suya sef, na Satan go punish am. The guy na bad market. Since this Ebola disease enter Nigeria, customers have been running from us.” “Ebola or no Ebola, man pikin must survive.”
Ebola was brought into Nigeria by Liberian-American, Sawyer who died in Lagos on July 25
