Security personnel attached to the Ondo State Task Force on Environment during the monthly environmental sanitation exercise in Akure, the state capital were beaten up by some prostitutes.
The cause of the beating was as a result of the men enforcing environmental laws where their brothel was located thereby getting their uniforms were torn into shreds while they sustained injuries due to the beating they received from the prostitutes.
The Commissioner for Environment, Chief Sola Ebiseeni, led the task force across the Akure metropolis to ensure compliance with the environmental exercise.
During the exercise, which also took the task force to some towns and villages, some people violating environmental laws were arrested.
However, when the team of the task force personnel got to the hotel, located at Oke Padre, off Lao Street, Akure, they met the prostitutes with their clients drinking alcohol and dancing.
Efforts of the security personnel to make them observe the environment exercise were rebuffed.
The prostitutes prevented their clients from being arrested.
The prostitutes and clients thereafter descended on the Civil Defence and security officials attached to the task force and beat them mercilessly while they resisted arrest.
