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 Metro gathered 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.”
The Manager of De Haven Hotel, who identified himself only as Mr Lucky, told our correspondent that the motorcyclist informed him about the incident.
He said, “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 state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said he was going to get back to our correspondent after getting details of the incident.
He had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.
Pandemonium as Lagos motorcyclists kill policeman, destroy patrol vehicles
A Chief Superintendent of Police, Kazeem Abonde, has been killed during a clash between policemen and motorcyclists in the Ajao Estate area of Lagos State.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the policemen were carrying out enforcement in the area on Thursday when they were resisted by the riders, who protested against the seizure of their means of livelihood.
The situation was said to have snowballed into a clash and resulted in the death of Abonde, who was reportedly hacked to death.
Our correspondent saw a photo of the bloodied remains of the policeman as he lay motionless by the roadside. The victim’s head appeared to have been smashed with some objects.
Another photo captured no fewer than 10 persons milling around a damaged patrol van inscribed with the Lagos State Police Command.
A source told our correspondent that the policemen involved in the incident were attached to the Ajao Police Station.
“Everywhere is tense; we don’t know what exactly caused the fight, but we know that there was a confrontation between motorcyclists and the policemen attached to the Ajao Police Station,” the source added.

Three suspected kidnappers have been arrested by the Nigeria Police in connection with the abduction of over 100 students of Bethel Baptist school in Kaduna State.
The suspects include, “Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal and Muazu Abubakar.”
They were paraded on Thursday by the Force Public Relations Officers, Frank Mba, at the headquarters of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The suspects dressed in military camouflage told journalists during an interview that they were among the 25 gunmen who stormed the school recently.
Abubakar, a 27-year-old suspect, said, “Twenty-five of us carried out the operation. We kidnapped 136 students and I got N100,000 share from the money.”
DAILY POST recalls that the school was invaded by armed men suspected to be bandits on July 5, 2021, while 121 students were whisked away.
Some of the abducted students have, however, regained their freedom.
