Culled From Vanguard;
There was mild drama in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Monday night,
as scores of commercial sex workers staged a candlelight procession in honour
of their colleagues, who were allegedly killed by suspected ritualists,
weekend.
Dressed in black apparels, the sex workers, who stormed the
state secretariat of Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta,
wailed as they mourned their colleagues.
One of the dead, who was simply identified as Sitira, was
found dead at a refuse dump site at Olomoore junction in Abeokuta on Sunday
morning.

Suspected ritualists were said to have abandoned the corpse
of the 23-year-old prostitute after severing some flesh from her body.
The late Sitira was said to have been thrown off a moving
Sport Utility Vehicle, SUV, along Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway.
Speaking with reporters, the protesters claimed that beside
Sitira, another colleague was killed by suspected ritualists.
They said the mutilated remains of the second sex worker was
discovered in a ditch at Olomoore, Abeokuta.
During the procession, about 50 commercial sex workers,
plying their trade in Abeokuta, converged on the NUJ secretariat and also at
the nearby residence of former Head of Interim National Government, Chief
Ernest Shonekan.
They identified Sitira with different names: Titi and
Folake.
Bearing candle sticks, they chanted solidarity slogans and
rained curses on the killers of their colleagues.
The sex workers momentarily barricaded the NUJ secretariat
and later departed for the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta,
where they continued their mourning.
They chanted: Oro nla leda, oro nla leda, eyin tepa Titi,
t’eje odagba, oro nla leda. Omo yin maku, eeeheee omo yin maku, eyin tepa Titi
t’eje odagba, omo yin maku.
It means: You have done something grievous, you have done
something grievous. The killers of Titi (Sitira) have done something grievous.
Their children will die, their children will die, those that killed Titi will
lose their children.
