HURIWA insisted the ultimatum is a violation of human rights and an avenue for police harassment of female citizens in a protest letter written by the associations’ National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, to the FCT minister and copied to the Senate President, David Mark, the Inspector General of Police, Ogbonna Onovo, and the Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke (SAN).   

“It may interest you to know that police operatives now stop even cab drivers carrying only females and ask them to surrender themselves as prostitutes to be arrested. This practice amounts to arbitrary arrest and a violation of the rights to human dignity as enshrined in section 34 of the 1999 constitution,” the letter reads in part.

He said that the action has violated the constitutional right of female citizens particularly, and has violated the provisions of section 41(1) of the 1999 constitution which states that “every citizen of Nigeria is entitled to move freely throughout Nigeria and to reside in any part thereof, and no citizen of Nigeria shall be expelled from Nigeria or refused entry thereto or exit therefrom.”
