A group of commercial sex workers in Benin City have been evicted from a hotel where they transacted their daily business.
The owner of the hotel said he asked the sex workers to leave his property because of fears of the deadly coronavirus the entire country is currently battling to contain.
Speaking to newsmen, he said ;
“I asked the prostitutes occupying my buildings to go home and meet their children and families at their various states because if any man who has the virus, meets any of them, they can easily share it among themselves.
“Like me now, I have children and I can’t ask my children not to embrace me and you know that these prostitutes are occupying my buildings and I am the one managing the facilities and so, I asked them to go home and stay with their children until the coronavirus is over”
