COVID-19: Commercial sex workers not on essential duties, FCTA warns

The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has warned commercial sex workers operating in the territory to respect all the COVID-19 protocols, especially the 10p.m. to 4a.m. curfew, noting that they are not on the exemption list of workers on essential duties.

The Administration also warned operators of nightclubs, bars, and gardens across the city not to open for business until the COVID-19 restriction order is lifted. Chairman of the FCT Ministerial Enforcement Task Force team on COVID-19 Restrictions, Ikharo Attah, handed down the warning at the weekend, when the team went round Kubwa, Gwarinpa, and Wuse to monitor the level of compliance by operators. Addressing journalists after the operation, Attah noted that “the ban on nightclubs, parks, and bars is yet to be lifted, hence the need for us to sustain routine inspection and ensure compliance.

We believe that if we relax too much, with the number of positive COVID-19 cases on the rise, it would not be good for the city.” Attah, who expressed satisfaction with the high level of compliance by the nightclub operators, was however unhappy with the high number of suspected commercial sex workers around buildings housing the nightclubs at Kubwa.
