Nollywood actress Uche Ogbodo has called for the legalization of prostitution in Nigeria. This is coming as a reaction from the actress after news about Nigerian policemen molesting prostitutes in Abuja recently hit the internet.
It was reported that the police officers arrested the prostitutes, raped them with nylons of sachet water as protection.
This news has angered so many social media users including some of the Nigerian celebrities who have come out to point out that the prostitutes are human beings and should never be treated otherwise.
Uche in a long post on her Instagram page wrote:
