Nollywood actress and mum-of-one, Uche Ogbodo has spoken in light of the recent arrest and alleged sexual molestation of some women who were rounded up by officers of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) in Abuja. According to reports, about 70 women were rounded up during a raid on night clubs and the officers alleged that the women were prostitutes and therefore plying an illegal trade.
There’s been a lot of public outcry since the news went viral, especially that the women tagged prostitutes were raped without pity or proper protection because they were deemed to have no dignity as prostitutes and therefore deserved no rights to consent.
As the outcry against the brazen abuse of the rights of the women heightened, popular Nollywood comic actor, Bishop umoh, aka Okon Lagos took a rather insensitive side, arguing that prostitutes have no dignity and therefore cannot be said to be raped. Read here.
Now actress Uche Ogbodo has bought into the public discourse with yet another unpopular stance in favour of prostitution. She in her post has questioned why prostitution has not being legalised in Nigeria while decrying the plight of the sex workers.
She is expected to receive a lot of backlash for this one.
