OrderPaperToday – The Senate has asked the Police in Abuja as well as authorities of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to begin the immediate deportation of commercial sex workers, beggars street urchins popularly calledalmajiris and destitutes from Abuja to their various states of origin.

Chairman, Senate Committee on the FCT, Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi) in company of some other senators, based their directive on the ground that the activities of the unwanted guests were posing serious security threats to the peace of the city.

Speaking with journalists on Thursday, Melaye said: “Last week, we summoned the Commissioner of Police FCT and the commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC). We did this because as a Senate, we are appalled with the security situation in Abuja.

“We are also very uncomfortable with the number of hoodlums on our streets in Abuja. We have beggars, destitutes, commercial sex workers spread across every nook and cranny of the city and we have given a marching order to the Commissioner of Police and the Commandment of NSCDC.

“We have also instructed the FCT Administration to provide logistics for the immediate evacuation of all dissidents, beggars, including those little boys who claim they are helping you to clean your glass by so doing they are adding additional dents to your cars.”

In another breathe, Melaye also informed that his committee has entered into an agreement with some commercial banks and other corporate organizations in the territory to help beautify the city.

Noting that the arrangement was at no cost to the government, he said it was part of the corporate social responsibility of the organizations.

Hear him: “Since we are in recession, we discovered that we must think outside the box. Corporate organizations in Abuja have decided and we have 18 of them that have accepted to work with us in making the city beautiful. There are 15 banks also.

“In fact, some of the companies that are into land swap business in Abuja have agreed to also join in this corporate social responsibility to ensure that the federal capital city is clean.”


  1. The massive numbers of destitute were created by Dino and his legislathieves. That is one of the results of corruption. You people aren’t see nothing.

  2. Dino is an idiot and very arrogant imbecile who should be deported to his village in Kogi state. Every city in the world has its own destitutes and they make sure they take care of them. Dino forgot that he was once a customer of these prostitutes before he became a legislathief.
