Over 500 Nigerian girls are prostitute in Ghana – Ambassador Abikoye

The Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Ambassador Olufemi Michael Abikoye, has called on relevant authorities to help halt the increasing number of young Nigerians engaging in prostitution in Ghana.

Abikoye revealed this during a meeting with the Nigerian community at the Ceeta-Kel Hotel in Kumasi.

 The High Commissioner called for collaboration with the High Commission to halt illegal activities of some Nigerians.

He disclosed that he has also met with no fewer than 500 Nigerian girls who were trafficked to Ghana as commercial sex workers in Kumasi.

Abikoye, however, pleaded with the Ghana authorities to secure decent jobs for them.

The High Commissioner, who was almost in tears, lamented that the girls who engage in prostitution were denting the image of Nigeria.

 CITI News quoted him as saying, “Let’s face the truth, and let’s talk to ourselves as Nigerians.

“Go and see what aged 14, 15 little girls are doing here.

“I mean, I am a parent and it is something that bothers my heart that can make me cry.

“How can a 10-year-old, a 12-year-old girl be engaging in this type thing?

 “I am going there.

“Is that the place I should be going?

“Is that what I should do as High Commissioner?”

Recall that Ambassador Abikoye resumed as Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana in August 2017, following the presentation of his Letter of Credence to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
