The Permanent Commissioner in charge of Hisbah in the State Shariah Commission, Mr Aminu Balarae Isah, gave the indication at a pre-Ramadan sensitisation workshop held at Bayan Gari area, a suburb of the state capital where commercial sex workers operate.
Mr Isah said the resolution was not to arrest or humiliate them, but to enable them get a more decent source of livelihood.
He noted that before their repatriation, the commission will take their data through a headcount of all the commercial sex workers in the state.
According to him, the repatriation would be done in collaboration with their various state governments and local government areas.
The commissioner said that the data would be used to provide economic empowerment for them, and that seed capital would be provided to enable them to be self-reliant.
“We’re not here to arrest you but rather to help and repatriate you to your various local government areas and states of origin so that you can engage yourselves in a meaningful and decent life,” he explained.
