Residents of FESTAC Town in the Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State have been thrown into commotion after a lady allegedly killed a trader with a razor blade.
Findings by reporters revealed that the culprit, simply identified as Precious attacked Sunday Emmanuel during a misunderstanding and slit his stomach with a razor.
The suspected sex worker, according to the testimony of one Buchi, a car marketer, visited FESTAC around 4am on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, and confronted Emmanuel who owns a makeshift shop on First Avenue, where he sold alcoholic drinks.
Naija News learnt from the report made available by PUNCH Metro that Precious usually visited the spot at late night hours in search of customers.
On the day of the incident, she met with Emmanuel and an argument ensued between them and degenerated into a fight.
Precious reportedly brought out a blade and slit the stomach of the 32-year-old trader.
“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,” Buchi revealed.
He continued; “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.”
Speaking with journalists moments after the incident, the Manager of De Haven Hotel, Mr Lucky, said 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.”
When contacted on the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said he was yet to get details of the incident.
He, however, promised to reach out to the newsmen moments later
