Many prostitutes who had attempted to sneak in for last minute grace got the shock of their lives as they were prevented from entering the church by the gatemen. But why did they stop the ladies?
According to Sunshine Times, there are many brothels around Sacred Heart Cathedral which cater to the needs of men in search of quick s*xual favours. It is the custom of the ladies to make a late dash into the church in order to crossover into the new year.
However, this year would be different and the incident caused a bit of commotion at the gate as many other people including revellers from adjoining bars were also affected by the action of the gate men who were trying to ensure that “negative” characters did not sneak into the service.
One of the security men was heard murmuring: “Na God catch dem today. Dem too like to always rush into church at dying minute. Where dem dey before, yeye people.”
But some of the affected ladies said it was their personal business to come to church at their own time.
“They should not stop us from entering at any time we like, this is God’s house for crying out loud,” said one of the ashawo babe who simply identified herself as Tina.
