Following a fall in the patronage of prost!tutes
in the popular Umunede community in Delta
State, the prost!tutes have taken to the use of
charms to attract customers.
According to a report by Southern City News, the
prost!tutes recorded a low patronage in the last
6 months, hence their decision to take the bull
by the horns.
According to them, the charms given to them by
native doctors help them to gain the love of men
who in turn patronize them.
The charm, fondly called ‘men follow me’ by the
Pr0stitutes makes a man to be a loyal customer

to be buried in the prost!tutes’ rooms. Stella,
one of the prost!tutes revealed that she had to
turn to the charm to make ends meet.
“We have to visit native doctors when we
discovered that business was dwindling. About 20
of us operating here bought the charm for N20,

experiences, another prost!tute, Edith, said:

keeping surveillance of the community, the
police public relations officer in the state, Mrs.

with a view to bringing the hoodlums to book,”
