By Ebenezer Adurokiya, Olaotan Agboola and Adetutu Afonja Saturday, August 30, 2008 IF your daughter is still in the primary or secondary school, you sleep under the same roof every night, (and of course you check on her in the middle of the night), this question may be redundant to you. But if yours is in the higher institution and you live miles apart, you may begin to worry where she is and what she does every night, especially on Saturday nights. This is not crying wolf, but it could be that your daughter, yes your darling daughter, is involved with some night clubs where girls dance naked! And oh yes, she might not just be a passive spectator, but an active performance in the frenetic show of shame. You could have read about it or you might have heard about it, and perhaps you didn’t give it much attention. You could have thought that afterall our eyes are assquiled everyday with pornography and near nude dressing on the streets. So, that some girls dance naked in some club house might not be particularly shocking to you. But wait a minute, have you ever asked where the managers of the demonic club houses get their supply of girls from? Maybe you think it’s only women of easy virtues that engage in such dobasing deals. You’ll be shocked. Saturday Tribune got hints to club houses in Ibadan where girls dance naked. We reliably gathered that the club houses get the bulk of their supply of nude dancers from female students of tertiary institution in Ibadan at its environs. The first night club is located between Ikolaba and Gate. While men pay about one thousand naira (N1000) to gain entry into the club, it is said to be a no-holds-bar situation for ladies. It was also reliably gathered that there are two sections in the club. The first section is the common section where every dick and harry dances unhindered with the accompaniment of ‘good’ music. Customers that often remain in this section for long, according to our source, may not have enough bucks to afford the luxury available at the second section; but right there, the groove can still go on. The second section, which is the VIP section, harbours a lot of ‘goodies’ for those that can afford it. It is therefore not surprising to find politicians, company executives, and the likes in the VIP section. Our source revealed that in this section, one of the ‘goodies’ readily available include naked dance, caressing, (actual) sex, among others. Also at the VIP section, sex, it was said, has a price . It was said to range from two hundred naira (N200) depending on the duration, which is not usually long, and the bargaining power of the ladies involved. These ladies, the source said, are students of the premier university (University Ibadan), the Polytechnic, Ibadan and other higher institutions around Ibadan. It was said that the girls who dress nude, are usually brought in droves via 18-seater buses or cars as the case may be. Intending male customers with insatiable guts for sex of this sort may choose to ‘do’ Till Day Break (TDB) as it is called, which costs from five hundred, (N500) depending again on duration. For instance, the source has it that sex expedition before midnight (12 a.m.) could be expensive but that if it extends beyond 1 - 2 a.m., the venture could go for free because at this point it was said,, everybody would have gone ‘gaga’ (taken over by alcohol). Thus, all kinds of strong drinks were said to be available at all seasons. Girls, Saturday Tribune, gathered, are usually treated to free drinks by their ravenous suitors. Fillers also have it that to further enhance the quick flow of hormones, for the real action which commences 10 p.m., blue films (sex films) are sometimes beamed to serve as an appetizer to customers at the VIP section. Saturday Tribune’s investigations also revealed that sex act is not limited to only the VIP section. It could be in the car, on the bonnet of a car, on the grass, in the car park, and in a nutshell, anywhere in the cosy premises of the night club. Everywhere, it was said, is free-for-sex act. ‘Option 24 Seven’, as the night club is called, and as the name implies, is indeed a secluded world on its own where, life, in the Biblical Sodom and Gomorrha, could be relived in this fast-fading age. If you are still in doubt, let’s take you to yet another club where similar salacious vagaries take place. This time around, Saturday Tribune was reliably informed that the club is situated directly behind a popular eatery at Mobil in Ibadan. The name of the club house which starts with letter “C” is allegedly owned by a businessman who spent several years abroad, but who now resides in Ibadan. This club owner was said to be operating a Real Estate and Car Wash business until he switched over to the entertainment industry because of low patronage. The club, it was said, commenced full operation just about eight (8) months ago and is said to be flourishing such that it is most unlikely that the owner will return to his ‘first love.’ Investigations carried out by Saturday Tribune on this particular club where ladies dance naked corroborated the claims of our informants. Right at the reception that can be viewed easily from the gate, were packs of condoms and cigarettes. An attendant (names withheld) acknowledged that the club house was the best place for any good rocker of life to be given myriad of events usually outlined for the maximum enjoyment of clubbers. Evenings of Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, our source said, are for routine schedules like ‘Bonanza Nite’ , ‘Comedy Nite’, ‘Raggae Nite’ and ‘Girls’ Nite’ respectively. Friday and Saturday nights, he said, are real ‘super’ days climaxing the schedules for each week. The Friday schedule is tagged “Thank God, It’s Friday” and that of Saturday is named, “Corporate People’s Nite-out on Saturday”, our source explained further. Our source spoke further: “The climax of our shows is always on Friday and Saturday nights. The groove starts around 10:30p.m. or thereabout and it’s till dawn. Security is guaranteed and don’t expect a dull moment.” While Options 24 Seven nite club’s gate fee attracts between N500 and N1000 for men, it is a different ball game at ‘Cliques’ where the gate is said to be usually thrown open for men who are expected to complement this kind of gesture by ordering for drinks. Similarly, the ‘ingredients’ for the night are never scarce according to our source. Here him: “We’ve got buses to trip down ladies from the Polytechnic, Ibadan and the University of Ibadan. Ladies of different sizes, shapes and colours are usually available to trip guys, I mean our customers and from that point, you can kick off the game. Why not call one of these days,” he begged. Any early caller at either of these two clubs on Saturday and Friday mornings will definitely be greeted with the sight of used condoms littering the premises of these clubs, Saturday Tribune gathered. Another source, who lives around Joyce B, the area in question, told Saturday Tribune that the story on ladies dancing nude was as true as the daylight. According to him, a pastor-friend of his, who needed a hall for worship, met the greatest shock of his life. He said the pastor, who ignored the exorbitant cost of the hall hurriedly gave it up when he was reliably informed that where he was bargaining for was a mini Sodom and Gomorrha. In fact, he was said to have angrily rained curses on the owner of the club for setting up such a luciferic ‘coven’. Characteristic of Nigerians, residents of these two areas, especially of ‘Cliques’ at Joice B, are said to be tired and complaining underground while the Estate-Agent-turned clubber continues to relish his lucrative business as he was said to have just added a new sports car to his fading jeep. Saturday Tribune carried out a vox pop on this societal anomaly. When a pastor, (names withheld) was contacted on the issue, he was nearly shedding tears. “You mean civilization has reversed us to the stone age where we started? Well, nothing is new under the sun, nothing is impossible. But this is an abuse of humanity, an abuse of God’s painstaking creation; a device from the pit of hell to ruin ungodly people who are not ready to follow God’s chosen way of salvation,” the cleric lamented. According to the cleric who said it was a sign of the end-time, all the girls and men involved in this show of shame should repent quickly or expect the full wrath of God upon them, quoting Gal. 6: 7-8. A businessman was more wroth in his reaction when his opinion was sought by Saturday Tribune.”What a rubbish! You mean our daughters leave their campuses to go and dance naked in night clubs? Are these the kind of future leaders and mothers we are spending our hard-earned monies on? he angrily queried. The man, who pleaded anonymity, called on the state government to investigate and subsequently close down such ‘brothels.’ “It is an expressway to the world of HIV/AIDS if your investigation is actually true, “was the response of a perturbed Health Officer who also pleaded anonymity. He observed that such ‘dens’ are ready ‘factories’ where the HIV is ‘manufactured’ and ‘distributed’ freely. No wonder, he observed, the spread of the dreaded virus keeps increasing among the youths, calling on the Oyo State government to act fast if the dignity of humanity must be preserved. Saturday Tribune also craved the audience of a parent, Mrs Victoria Olu Ogunmola, who spoke in Yoruba. According to her, the world has turned upside down. She said what used to be a taboo in those days is the order of the day nowadays. She opined that ladies who dress nude in public are potential clubbers who would definitely dance naked. “Don’t you see the way they dress outside, is it different from being dogs, they can be slept with anywhere, what a shame!”, she exclaimed. She also averred that the behaviour of such ladies is attributable to moral decadence in the society and the failure of parents to monitor the activities of their wards. She also observed the inordinate crave for materialism, influence of western culture and the present economy down-turn as probable factors responsible for the animalistic display, asking government and religious organisations to rise up to the occasion. Another respondent wondered that what happens to the naive ones that go into such clubs is better imagined.”The men take advantage of them by exploring and exploiting their bodies. You wouldn’t blame the men. They must get value for the one thousand naira (N1000) they had paid as gate fee. Moreso, a girl who opened her eyes to willingly go into the lions’ den should not expect to come out alive.” she observed. She vituperated further: “It is sheer perverse entertainment, but you know what? it is flourishing because that is what the world loves. Parents should be responsible for their children. We know that some of these girls are pushed into these things because they have to survive. It might not sound reasonable to you, but it is a legitimate reason to them. Some are pressurized to do it by their peers, while some just do it for fun. If parents could stand up to their responsibility by ensuring where their wards are and what they are doing, we would have fewer cases of such absurdities.” She called on parents to be more responsible to their calling since the bulk of the girls that dance nude at clubs did not jump from the sky but from homes.
