Hisbah, the Islamic police under the Bauchi State Sharia Commission has commenced census to ascertain the number of prostitutes operating in Bauchi, the State capital.

The Permanent Commissioner, Aminu Balarabe Isiah of Hisbah, told newsmen that the exercise is in line with its effort to tackle prostitution among girls and women in the State. 

Flagging off the census at Bayan Gari on Wednesday, Isah said that the head count would assist the state government in designing programmes that would rehabilitate and empower the commercial sex workers with a view to ending the menace.

He lamented that the rate at which adolescent girls indulge in prostitution is worrisome as their acts have negative social and health effects in the society.

He further said that the women and girls would provide information on the reasons they left their families, and if they are willing to get married or reunite with their families.
