A suspected commercial S3x worker has confessed that she resorted to prostitution due to lack of money she needed to complete her academic studies.
The suspect, identified as Esther John from Akwa-Ibom State, was among the 20 suspects arrested in Onitsha, Anambra State by Operatives of the Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra (OCHA) Brigade.
She said: “I’ve been struggling to complete my studies due to financial constraints. I was looking for money to complete school clearance and project when a friend introduced me to the business.
“Today is my first day to be here. There is no money for my project.
The date for the defence has been fixed for next week and they said if I must defend, I must pay all my fees. I don’t have shishi (a dime) and there is no one to run to.
“Since my HND 1 till now, there has been nobody to pay my fees. The person assisting me before now has died. If there’s anyone who can help me, I won’t come back here again.”
