The experience of Destiny Bassey, 25 as a commercial sex worker has every semblance with most typical ladies of the night.

The hustling is real and the urge to use what you have to get what you need drives most of them to engage in the one of the world's oldest professions.

Bassey, an Imo indigene, was arrested alongside 18-year-old Bright Effiong when the owner of Collabor Hotel, where Bassey has plied her trade for three years, was also arrested by the police.

She said she sleeps with at least five men per day and collects about N2,000 from each customer.

The Imo State indigene added that joblessness pushed her to the act.

"Nobody forced me into prostitution. I have been hustling at the hotel for some years now.

"I send part of the money I make to my relatives in the village for the upkeep of my child. I don’t have parents and my husband is dead.

"I sleep with five men every day, so I make as much as N10,000. I pay the hotel N5,000 every week. I wanted to save enough money for my education.”

The owner of the hotel, John Okon, was apprehended along with the hotel manager, Emmanuel Thomas.

Their alleged accomplice, Monica Ita, was said to be at large.

It was learnt that operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, acting on intelligence, busted the hotel on Saturday, March 10, 2018, and caught a 15-year-old primary school leaver allegedly engaging in prostitution.

The girl was said to have been brought from her village in the eastern part of the country by Ita a few weeks ago on the pretext that she (Ita) would get her a good job.

During a parade on Tuesday at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja, the hotel operators admitted to providing service for the sex workers, except the 15-year-old girl.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said the command swung into action following a tip-off that a syndicate was running a prostitution ring.
