Women at a Nigerian brothel

A housewife and mother of two children dressed up one evening and left the family house as if going to the next street to buy groceries.

She failed to return and she made no contact with the family she left behind.

One day and three months after, the missing woman was found in a brothel in Maiduguri, Borno State.

Her husband made the shock discovery that his wife has been busy as a sex worker.

A Civilian JTF man who assisted in tracking the runaway mother of two, Kabiru Skido, said he was checking vehicles along Baga market road when the husband of the woman ran to him and requested that he should stop a commercial Keke NAPEP that was approaching them.

“I stopped the oncoming Keke NAPEP when suddenly the man ran to one of them and started dragging a woman out. My colleagues and I intervened to know what was happening. He explained that the woman was his wife and that he traced her to a brothel behind the market but rather than follow him home, she jumped into a Keke NAPEP and was about to escape once again.

“The woman suddenly started shouting saying “yes, you are not taking good care of me. I have to go and find something to take care of myself.”

When we realised that they were about to raise a crowd around us and at a time they started talking in their local Igbo language, we invited an elderly Igbo businessman from the market, called Pa Okoro, who came and took them away,” he said.
