The poor conditions in the camps contribute to creating an environment where such exploitation could take place, said Segun. Basic resources such as food and water are inadequate, and those in power have the ability to determine who receives how much how often, she learned from the interviews. “There was evidence to suggest the existence of the practice of ‘Sex for food’ or even ‘Sex for freedom of movement’ in and out of the camps,” the report stated.
