We “Bribe” Police Officers With Sex – Prostitutes

The popular claim by the police in Nigeria that they are friends of the people has been confirmed by commercial s*x workers at a brothel around the Railway Police Station, Agege area of Lagos state, Southwest Nigeria.
The brothel, which is just a name to cover up the s*x-for-money business that takes place in the old one-storey building, parades pretty women between 25 and 35 years old who said they offer s*x and money to policemen so that they could remain in the world’s oldest profession. The brothel, it was learnt, has been in existence for several years without any disturbance from its neighbouring Railway Police divisional headquarters as well as two churches, one located directly behind it and the other located two houses away from it.
Parading 19 ladies of different sizes and shapes, some of the prostitutes confessed that the rapport between them and policemen force has remained very cordial. “I’ve been doing ashawo (prostitution) business here for over three years now and I can tell you as a customer not to fear because the police will never come here to harass anybody. They know what we do here and also know how we operate. In fact, they are our best friends here,” one of the commercial s*x workers, a Benin girl who refused to mention her name, said.
Another prostitute in the brothel told said that to keep the relationship between the brothel and the police “in good shape”, they cough out N3,000 monthly to bribe law enforcement agents. “Whenever you see the police here, it is either they are here to drink or to collect their “settlement” or even to have a feel of us which we willingly give to them free of charge as we have agreed among ourselves.”
