A 61-year-old woman has been arraigned in a Lagos court on charges of prostitution.

Prostitutes on the rampage

It was a real show of shame when one Madam Theresa Odega, alongside four other prostitutes were arrested and arraigned at the Igbosere Magistrates' Court sitting in Lagos, for allegedly causing public nuisance and prostitution.

It was gathered that Odega and the other women, Helen Ugwu, 33, Chika Okoro, 40, Roseline Jebba, 43 and Sandra Akomake, 58, were arrested in Ikoyi late at night while they were soliciting for customers along Thomas Avenue.

While the other four women pleaded guilty to the charge when they were read, Odega pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The police prosecutor, Nicholas Akeene, told the court that the accused were arrested on November 24, at about 1am and were accused of unlawfully engaging in prostitution, an offence that contravened Section 142 (1) (a) (b) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The Magistrate, S. K. Matepo, remanded the four who pleaded guilty in prison custody but admitted Odega to bail in the sum of N50, 000.

The case was adjourned till November 30, for facts and sentencing.
