Following the raid of popular night club, Caramelo in Abuja last week Wednesday by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), the Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Olusegun Runsewe, has commended the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Mr Mohammed Bello, for effecting the timely raid on strippers clubs in Abuja.
On Wednesday 17th of April, the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) officials reportedly laid seige on a popular night club, Caramelo in Abuja and arrested 34 strippers.
According to Umar Shuaibu, the Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, disclosed that the FCTA Joint Task Team, which comprises of the Department of Development Control, Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) and the Social Development Secretariat (SDS) raided the club after residents of the neighbourhood complained severally about the activities of the night club.
NCAC, who released a statement on the arrest through Runsewe declared that curbing strippers activities in Abuja is the right step to take.
“The rise of this ugly and negative recreational clubs negated every strand of Nigerian culture”.
“What the FCT minister and his officials have done is not only commendable but also a proactive measure to track down the influencers and marketers ofeconoeconomicic expressions, thereby protecting our culture from foreign pollution,
“Nigeria’s homegrown culture must not be overshadowed by this message from the messengers of darkness,” he said.
According to report, Runsewe pointed out that accepting and practicing some behaviors and norms should be discouraged in Nigeria especially among youths.
Runsewe further urged state governments to tow the path of the federal government and get rid their states of this evil.
