Professional Prostitutes under the aegis of Professional Prostitutes Association of Nigeria (PPAN), Onitsha branch has threatened to withdraw their services from their men clients if the incessant house rent charged by brothel owners are not reduced significantly.
The association is protesting the high rent charged per apartment in most brothels in Onitsha which ranges between Six thousand naira (N6,000) and Seven thousand naira (N7,000) per month while  in most brothels prostitutes are charged daily depending on the location of such brothels and availability of customers a day.
Making their feelings known to newsmen in Onitsha, the chairman of Professional Prostitutes Association of Nigeria (PPAN), Onitsha branch, Miss Nkechi Onyedinma narrated the woes faced by her colleagues in their various areas of “business”, stating that the members would soon meet to deliberate on the challenges facing them.
She threatened that failure of various landlords of brothels to reduce the high rent charged her members would result to utmost withdrawal of their services from such places, adding that such a last resort would bring an untold hardship to their men clients and society in general as their would be escalated incidences of rape of all kinds.
She, however, appealed to the state government and all stakeholders to wade into the matter as the society would suffer more if their services are eventually withdrawn.
Miss Onyedinma made instances of India and Pakistan where incidences of rape are in the increase because of Sharia Law which prohibits prostitution in the case of Pakistan.
She stated that even in Nigeria a lot of rape cases are not easily resolved while others are committed unnoticed.
She explained that their profession was a noble one as most respectable men in the society also patronise them. She, however, lamented that student prostitutes who operate from their parents’ homes and campuses were “spoiling business for them”.
“We are not happy that younger girls who are mostly students in various higher institutions around and operate either from the campus or their parents’ homes are spoiling business for us”, she lamented.
