Commercial sex workers operating around Summit Road in Asaba, Delta State capital, on Thursday, detained three of their customers for failing to pay their bills.
The ashawo girls after pummeling their errant customers for several hours decided to hold them hostage in order to serve as deterrent to other customers who might want to ‘have it’ without paying.
It was reliably gathered that the hookers had told their victims that a round of sex was
N3,000 while Till Day Break (TDB) ranged between N7,000 and N8,000 depending on negotiations.
But this was not to be as the victims allegedly hoodwinked the ladies into accepting to make love to them for N2,000 each after which they would pay the balance of N1,000 each.
While their argument lasted, the ladies grudgingly accepted them, but with a warning that their failure to pay the balance would attract trouble for them.
This, sources said, fell on deaf ears when the unsuspecting men went with the sex workers into their rooms where they allegedly performed beyond redemption and imagination.
One of the commercial sex workers, Silver Ogieriakhi, said: “We manhandled the guys and detained them when they tried to prove logic for us. They used us and short-paid us.
“Our original bill was N3,000 each, but they paid N2,000 and promised that when they finished, they would pay the balance; this was how the trouble started.”
Unconfirmed sources said the joint is a beehive of activities, especially on weekends where pornographic films were allegedly shown in the open after gate takings.
Manager of the brothel, Mr. Chinedu Emeka, who confirmed that the victims were detained for unpaid bills, said:
“The victims wanted fun and were having insufficient funds to make up.
“Instead of begging our workers, they resorted to a shouting match with them and they were detained in their rooms before a Good Samaritan paid for them.”
