Female IDPs Allegedly Turn Prostitutes In Borno

The Network of Civil Society Organisations in Borno State, has claimed most female members of the Internally Displaced Persons’ camp in the state have turned to prostitution to survive.




The Chairman of the CSOs, Ahmed Shehu, said that displaced women and teenagers were engaging in prostitution in order to raise money to feed their families.
Shehu, who spoke at the presentation of the situational assessment of internally displaced persons in the North-East by a non-governmental Organisation, NOI Polls, on Tuesday in Abuja, noted that 60 per cent of female IDPs had suffered rape and other forms of sexual harassment.
Shehu said, “Many females were raped and killed while collecting firewood, particularly as they travelled farther from their communities. Many teenagers are heading their families now because their parents had been killed or captured by Boko Haram. The sad part of it is that many female internally displaced persons have gone into prostitution so that they can feed themselves.”
A Borno-based journalist, Mohammed Alfa, urged anti-graft agencies to beam searchlight on the State “if they are serious about fighting corruption,” noting that foods meant for the IDPs were being diverted and sold by state government officials.
He alleged that some people had threatened his life for publishing a report on the nefarious activities going on in the camps, stressing that he was not frightened by the threat.

The NOI in its assessment, noted the cases of sexual abuse and rise in social vices in the camps and called on the government to address it.

“Majority of IDPs (93 per cent) attested that they don’t get most of the relief materials like food, clothes, medicines and so on, allocated to them by the government and donor agencies,” the report stated.

But it's really evil of anyone to divert and sell food and other materials meant for these displaced persons naw. People keep laying curses on themselves by themselves.
Teens are selling their bodies becoz of some greedy persons. Every state government officials involved in this, may God judge u
