Background of the Study

Commercial sex is the exchange of money or goods for sexual services. Sex workers are women, men and transgendered people who receive money or goods in exchange for sexual services, and who consciously define those activities as income generating even if they do not consider sex work as their occupation (McCurry, 2014).

It is not restricted to any culture, its global and it transcends all age barriers as some cases girls as young as eight years are involved. Commercial sex has evolved over the last two decades, Adejumobi, 2011). According to African Rights, (1992) commercial sex work has indeed become complex in different ways as there are male sex workers in Nigeria who have sex with men for commercial reasons and there is an organization0 that support them which based in Ibadan, Oyo state (Maloba, 2017)

Commercial sex has particularly taken a worrisome and indeed despicable turn on the continent through trafficking in person and violation of people’s human right and these have become major issues in West Africa (Agbo, 2010). In recent time, commercial sex has become a lucrative business in Nigeria especially among the youths (Akanji, 1997). Research has it that, 31% of sex workers are students particularly in Nigeria institutions (Ake, 2013). Ake, (2013) is of the view that, there are different forms of sex workers, those that stay in the brothels, those that stand on the road side, those that operate from home etc.

Furthermore, sex work has now become an occupation especially for the girls in countries like Netherland, Brazil, Norway etc., sex work serves as one of the sources of revenue for government, hence, and taxes are paid to the government (Albert, 2014). Albert further says that, sex workers face systematic discrimination throughout the world and are therefore, at risk of variety of abuses, these include police extortion, arbitrary detention and other. Violations of their human and labour rights which in some cases even amount to slavery.

In Nigeria, sex work is an illegal business because, the law prohibits its, but no active action has really been taken against it by the government (Albert, 2015). In Anambra State particularly, Aniocha local government, commercial sex workers can be found in hotels, bars, brothels and on the street, (Anderlini, 2017). Despite the efforts made by the government and other private organization to eradicate sex work in Anambra, it has rather grown to become one of the outstanding social problems that have really apprehended the people of Aniocha (Anigbo, 1991). It is on this background that, this research work attempts to find a possible way of coping with this problem.
