3,500 male 'ashawos' discovered in Abuja
The National Agency for AIDS Control says there are 3,500 male sex workers in Abuja alone.
Making the disclosure at a lecture, the Director General of the agency, Professor John Idoko said that a study carried out by the body found out the strange figure which is very worrisome.
Prof. Idoko also noted that 60% of the male 'ashewo' who hang out in clubs soliciting for customers are married men, thereby raising serious concern of spouse HIV transmission.
Idoko also added that the study showed that a high proportion of married women in Cross River and Benue States had other sexual partners..
