A prostitute stripped naked in public in order to protest her arrest, police in Nigeria said.

Police said that the incident occurred in Garki, after the prostitute was arrested during a police operation meant to crack down on sex workers.

The woman, one of thirty prostitutes arrested during the raid, denied that she was a prostitute and stripped naked.

“I want the whole world to see. Am I a prostitute? I want everyone to see how the government is treating innocent people,” the woman said.

Officials have said that they will crack down on hotel owners, who allow prostitutes to use their facilities.

Hotels caught allowing prostitution will be fined and shut down.
