Envoy Worries Over Nigerian Prostitutes In Saudi Arabia.

The Nigerian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Abdullahi Garba Aminchi has raised alarm over the increasing influx of Nigerian girls into Saudi Arabia for prostitution.

Aminchi, who was fieldeing questions yesterday in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, said already about three different syndicates that specialised in trafficking young girls into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had been smashed.

He said some members of the syndicates and their victims were apprehended and deported to Nigeria after serving various prison terms in Saudi Arabia.

The ambassador stated that some of the arrested girls were not even Muslims but they were answering Muslim names to further deceive the security agencies.

He noted that Saudi Arabia was attracting prostitutes from Nigeria because of the erroneous belief that prostitution was a booming venture in the Kingdom.

He noted that: "It's really booming particularly here in Jeddah. There was a time they even called our attention that there are some Nigerians roaming the streets as 'good evening girls'. They said Nigerians, I said 'No'.

"They said if you want to give us one week we will bring them with their passports.

"Surprisingly, when they brought them with their passports, they don't even understand the language we were speaking. Wallahi. They are being brought in just to get money; very disturbing; very alarming.''
