A sanitation enforcement team in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region on Monday forced a group of commercial sex workers to clean their prostitution hub.
Information gathered by Joy News suggested that the operation formed part of efforts to enhance the war against prostitution in the region by the Regional National Security Council.
Speaking in an interview with Joy News during the operation, leader of the team, Godfred Baah said he believes the operation was to improve sanitation in the region.
“We have visited Adum, the Pacific Bank, the Ashawo Lane and its environs where we saw heaps of rubbish and an unclean environment which we supervised the sex workers to clear,” he said.
The operation saw the sex workers scrub the gutters, sweep the hub as some men in the vicinity helped to weed the overgrown weeds around the hub with tricycle riders paid to carry the rubbish.
Also, the team impounded heaps of substances believed to marijuana in a structure which had been mounted in the prostitution hub.
