There was a startling revelation on Monday that guys now operate x spots, just like ladies:
According to the latest investigations by the Anambra State Aids Control Agency, it was discovered that there are 618 female and 24 male x spots in various parts of the state.
Director of SACA, Dr. Ogochukwu Ndibe, who gave the figures at a programme for international partners operating in the state, said there are 5920 female and over 500 male x workers in the state.
On the average, there are 10 female x workers and 5 male x workers in a spot.
He said: “There are men who have x with other men as a matter of preference or practice,regardless of their xual identity or xual orientation and irrespective of whether they also have x with women or not.”
Areas where the male and female x spots were prevalent include Awka South, Awka North, Ihiala, Onitsha South, Orumba North, Nnewi North, Onitsha North, Aguata, and Njikoka.
Anambra, with 7.8 per cent prevalence of HIV, isamong the highest in the country.
Chief of Staff to Governor Peter Obi, Professor Chinyere Okunna, said: “As a relatively poor state, we cannot achieve much without partnering with the donor agencies.”
