- Heartbreaking stories of women from Nigeria who are being forced into prostitution in Ghana have surfaced online
- Such women, it has been revealed, are lured into the country with the possibility of employment but they end up on the streets
- One of them revealed that she makes between GHC100 and GHC150 at night when she goes to bed with about eight men
YEN.com.gh has learnt that some Nigerian women are being exploited by smugglers, madams and ‘priests’ in Ghana.
Information available shows that a network of people who transform them into sex workers manipulate them to do their bidding.
A woman identified as Jennifer, reveals that she spent a few weeks in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, and worked as a prostitute in order to make money for her ‘bosses.’
She adds that she usually makes between GHC100 to GHC150 from eight clients every night.
Per a report by Aljazeera.com, the girls are often recruited using notices such as signboards advertising available jobs.
Dichemso in the Ashanti region has been identified as the business area for those who recruit the girls.
The reason lies in the proliferation of hotels and guesthouses in the area which are controlled by unidentified men.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has praised the work of a young innovator, Hayford N. Brako, who has created an app that helps locate drugs.
Brako, who is the chief executive officer of MedRx, has deployed a technological system that aids in the easy identification of medicines in pharmacies.
The mobile app assists patients to get immediate access to all drugs by directing them to pharmacies that have them in stock.
