Prostitute Union elections turns bloody as member is stabbed

The election conducted by the National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes ended in a crisis.

Nigerian prostitutes could not hold their elections

It was a free for all fight session and blood flowed freely when members of the National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (NANP), gathered to conduct an election to elect officers into various positions,  as the election venue became rowdy, with tempers flaring and violence taking over the venue, a popular hangout in Lagos.

According to eyewitnesses, the fracas broke out after the former secretary of the sex workers, Jessica Elvis, was declared the National President, after polling a total of 300 votes to beat the incumbent president, Madam Efoyo Felix who got 153 votes while Tamar Tion, from Nasarawa State, got a meagre 63 votes.

But rejecting the results, Felix pointed out that it was marred with irregularity and rigging perpetuated by the electoral committee chairman, Franka Chikam.

In the melee that followed Felix's demand for another election to be conducted, a fight broke out and a member who was said to be loyal to her, was stabbed with a broken bottle while several others sustained various degrees of injuries.
