Universal Hotel, Brothel Shuts In Uyo After 30 Years by Blue3k2: 12:00am On Dec 13, 2017
A 30-year-old brothel in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, has closed.

The brothel, named Universal Hotel, was located along Udotung Ubo Street, in the heart of the city.

One of the sons of the hotel owner told PREMIUM TIMES, Wednesday, that he and his brothers decided to close the brothel immediately their father died in 2016.

“The same day my father died, the women were evicted from their rooms,” said Samuel Edet.

Mr. Edet said before he died, their father, shared the apartments in the building to all his children.

He was a polygamist, said Mr. Edet, who has moved into his own apartment with his family.

“We are 11 boys and four girls,” he said. “The female children have also been given rooms too.”

In its booming days in the 90s, Universal Hotel was one of the city’s star attraction, lighting up Udotung Ubo Street and its environs.

Several months after it was shut, commercial sex workers could still be seen at night loitering near the hotel.

Mr. Edet said the family used to feel bad about their name being associated with the brothel, but that they were helpless.

“We didn’t for one day object to him running the brothel since we were getting our daily bread from there.

“My father really took care of us – his children. I can’t blame him for turning the place into a brothel.

“The family may eventually decide to sell the property if all the co-owners sit down to talk,” he said.

smiley Hilarious so Akwa Ibom police ignored the brothels existence for 30 years. Theres no way they didnt know when general public knew. Akwa Ibom funding their 10,000 seat church with brothel taxes.

Anyway the hotel could be profitable if numbers are good. The place doesn't look that bad on outside. I don't know how much they will make if the have to split it so many ways.

Very good move. It is always good for children to choose a more descent and honorable path, different from what parents used to know. Every child deserves to be better than their parents.

Thats not good. Won't people be put out of business by this very move? Its not good news at all.

Are you unemployed and still going around submitting CV while broke? Are you a civil servant and have a plot of land somewhere wasting? Why not become a cucumber farmer and make exra thousands planting Cucumber as a side income? I am the most reliable distributor and supplier of the best Cucumber and WaterMelon seeds in Nigeria and I also farm them in sacks making at least 40-50,000 per month farming cucumber and watermelon.

See testimonies of transactions here.

We had positive reviews and feedback because the seeds we deal on are hybrid and are of the best quality. Same day you planted, is same day it germinates or 48 hours at the most.

Good move guys, we did the same too to our father's property after his death. Brothel business is not the best to be attached to someone's name in the name of getting daily �.

Wayward sons.
Are they wiser than their dad who founded such a lucrative business?

They didn't even consider the customers before taking such selfish decisions.

May God not give us such kids whose only goal in life is to destroy their parent's legacies.

It's hilarious but factual, sex sells more than food and water combined. The family members tried living with the negative opinions people formed about them especially with our avowed Christianity. Trying to imagine myself in such position. Damn! I can't live with it.

We are patiently waiting ....fire


Reminds me of my secondary school days,many years ago,we had this host of brothels around my school,big big ones....To the extent,one was turned to a Primary school,one session no body went there,not even teachers applied....They now re-changed the name and converted back to a bigger brothel....those Ajangbadi days....hahahaha
The stigma will always be there,but it can be reformes. For those who said they would not live there,the one you are living in now,unless you built it,you do not now what was done there OR even in Lagos where accommodation is fight-to-finish,you just rent house anyhow.

Na God dey protect person for this obodo Nigeria.
