Nigeria Prostitutes Protest Ritual Killings of their Colleagues

The pay and f^ck ladies were dressed [post_ad]in black apparels while they stormed stormed the state secretariat of Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta, wailing as they mourned their colleagues.

According to them, one of the murdered, identified as Sitira (or Titi or Folake) a-23 year old, was found dead at a refuse dump site at Olomoore junction in Abeokuta on Sunday morning, after the suspected ritualists abandoned her corpse after severing some flesh from her body.
They further alleged that the late Sitira was thrown off a moving Sport Utility Vehicle, SUV, along Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway.
They added that beside Sitira, another colleague was killed by suspected ritualists, and her mutilated body was discovered in a ditch at Olomoore, Abeokuta.
During the procession, news48hrs.com reports that about 50 commercial sex workers, plying their trade in Abeokuta, converged on the NUJ secretariat and also at the nearby residence of former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan.
Bearing candle sticks, they chanted solidarity slogans and rained curses on the killers of their colleagues, such as: “Oro nla leda, oro nla leda, eyin tepa Titi, t’eje odagba, oro nla leda. Omo yin maku, eeeheee omo yin maku, eyin tepa Titi t’eje odagba, omo yin maku”. (meaning  You have done something grievous, you have done something grievous. The killers of Titi (Sitira) have done something grievous. Their children will die, their children will die, those that killed Titi will lose their children.
The commercial sex workers momentarily barricaded the NUJ secretariat and later departed for the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, where they continued their mourning.
