Despite lifting of Curfew in Osun State, commercial sex workers have lamented the effect of ban on commercial motorcyclists on their line of business.
The state government had insisted that the lift of curfew does not extend to commercial motorcyclists in the state as it insisted that Okada riders cannot work beyond 8pm.
The Secretary of Osogbo sex workers, popularly known as Olosho, Tomi Olowe said the lift of curfew is a welcome development but the continuous ban on commercial motorcycles is counterproductive.
“Look, we know peace is important, but now that the curfew is lifted after weeks of lack of patronage, locking out Okada riders at 8pm is not good for our business.
“It is the Okada men that help us get customers, sometimes; they are even the middlemen who get commission after taking us to and fro the customer’s place.
“We plead with our Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola to be considerate and allow Okada riders more freedom to operate for our sake”, she said.
