A sex worker simply identified as Precious has killed one of her customers, Sunday Emmanuel, in Festac area of Lagos.
FirstNews gathered that Emmanuel gave up the ghost after Precious cut his stomach open with a blade following a misunderstanding that occurred between them.
Until his death, Emmanuel was a businessman, who sold alcoholic drinks in a makeshift shop at First Avenue, Festac, Lagos.
A resident, Buchi, who spoke about the incident said the sad incident occurred on September 1 when the duo had a disagreement.
According to him, “After perpetrating the crime, she boarded a motorcycle to escape. The guy who was attacked ran after her but the injuries made him fall and he died because his intestines came out.
“People thought she had escaped. But the motorcyclist, who witnessed the attack on Emmanuel rode her to the FESTAC Police Station and handed her over to a policeman. I don’t know what caused the fight between her and the man.”
The Manager of De Haven Hotel, Mr Lucky, told the Punch that he was informed by a motorcyclist.
“After he told me, I stepped out and saw a lot of people at the scene, which is opposite our hotel. The motorcyclist informed me because he knew the police might want to hold the hotel responsible for the death. He also wanted me to ensure that the police treated the case properly.
“When I got to the station, I saw the girl; she is a sex worker, and was not remorseful about what she did. Even when she was handcuffed, she was still not remorseful, until when they were transferring the case and she was told that she might never come back.
“The incident did not happen in the hotel, but opposite the hotel and my only saving grace was the motorcyclist who took her to the station and informed me. I learnt that she was taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.”
The Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, was yet to comment on the matter as at press time.
