A report in The Punch this morning claims that for several years government officials have supplied women for s*x to dignitaries staying at government guest houses and lodges across the federation.
Top aides of some state governors are also said to recruit women for their guests as well as for the governors. Although in a few states governors are not party to such practices, it is the norm in most parts of the federation.
Protocol officers in government houses are also heavily involved in the practice, as they usually establish contact with the young girls through ‘links,’ who are usually men, or more experienced girls who have participated in such activities in the past.
The recruitment of the girls is sometimes given out as a contract, where middlemen are in charge of supplying the girls to the visitors at the government house.
In some cases, girls are reportedly recruited from outside Nigeria, and some are said to come from North African countries.
Many of the government spokespersons contacted in various states, however, denied the reports saying their principals are more focused on governing that frolicking with young women.
