A trader, Sunday Emmanuel, has lost his life after a suspected sex worker, identified as Precious, allegedly slit his stomach with a blade at FESTAC Town in the Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State.
PUNCH reported that Emmanuel had a makeshift shop on First Avenue, where he sold alcoholic drinks.
During a visit to the area on Monday, our correspondent learnt that Precious usually visited the spot at odd hours in search of customers.
A car marketer, who identified himself only as Buchi, said around 4am on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, an argument ensued between her and Emmanuel.
Buchi added that the argument degenerated into a fight, as Precious brought out a blade and slit the stomach of the 32-year-old.
He said, “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.”
