Her parents are far away in Port Harcourt and she came to Lagos last year. She sleeps in different hotel rooms with whoever agrees to accommodate her every night and is not willing to go back to her parents.
This girl told me that she is here to learn but trust me, I know the industry and it is not a safe place for young girls.”
