Don’t lodge underage girls in hotels anymore – FG warns

The Federal Government has warned hotel owners across the country not to lodge teenagers and underage girls or they risk being sanctioned.

The Minister of Women Affairs, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, stated this on Saturday at the ‘Unlock Training and Grants’ ceremony in Abuja.

In January 2023, some students of Federal Government College in Ijanikin, Lagos, were caught absconding from school to lodge female classmates in hotels for sexual romp.

The students, all boarders, were said to have on different occasions scaled the school’s fence with their female counterparts and stayed out of school for days.

Findings revealed that the students involved in the act were between the ages of 14 and 17.

Similarly, in April 2022, a video clip of a 15-year-old boy who was accosted while trying to lodge two girls and another guy in a hotel room went viral on social media.
