Another LG bans prostitution, alcohol businesses in Jigawa

Taura Local Government Area of Jigawa State has issued a seven-day notice to commercial sex workers and bar attendants to vacate the area.

Council chairman, Alhaji Baffa Yahaya, gave the notice after meeting with security committee on Saturday.

He said that the move will help local government on its efforts to ensure maximum security of the area.

“Henceforth, prostitution, selling and drinking alcohol is prohibited in Taura Local Government. Whoever is arrested will face the wrath of the law.

“I therefore issue a seven-days
notice to who ever takes it as means of livelihood to change business or vacate the area,” he said.

Baffa said the council will take serious action against anybody arrested violating the directives.

This is coming after Gwaram local Government had issued similar ultimatum to commercial sex workers and bar attendants to change the business or vacate the area.
