“Yes, we have arrested many people and we have actually tried to close some places forth night ago. There are areas in Nimra Talata we have closed the places down because of prostitution, there are also areas in a place called Rujal Mafi, Gudele, Jebel, Munuki, Juba Nabari -Thomping area that is also engaging in these immoral activities.”

Mr. Nhial said most of these businesses are neither mapped nor registered, and according to him, this is to ensure security, sanitation and ethical use of business premises.
