    Bauchi State Government said it will repatriate all commercial sex workers operating in the state back to their various state of origin.

    The Permanent Commissioner in charge of Hisbah in the Shariah Commission, Bauchi State, Barr. Aminu Balarae Isah, disclosed this at a pre-Ramadan sensitization workshop held at Bayan Gari Area, a suburb of the state metropolis.

    “The recent interview conducted by his office on some of the commercial sex workers has made them to realize that some of them are into the indecent trade due to maltreatments from their stepmothers, poverty and illiteracy.

    “We also discovered that others were forced into the act by the activities of their co-wives,” he stated.

    One of the participants at the workshop who spoke on behalf of her colleagues, Hafsatu Azare, commended Hisbah for organizing the educative and beneficial workshop.

    She assured that if the government would help them with a better source of livelihood, they would quit these indecent living.
