A man was stabbed to death while negotiating sex with a prostitute in Lagos.
A young man identified as Anuoluwapo Saheed, was reportedly stabbed to death at a brothel in Abule-Egba area of Lagos State, while he was negotiating for a sex session with a prostitute resident of the 'pay-by-hour' joint.
According to police reports, Saheed was attacked by some 'local' hoodlums led by one Emmanuel on July 30, 2015, at the brothel called Buffalo Hotel, located along Akerele Street, in the area, after he was traced to the place where he was drinking with friends.
It was gathered that after ascertaining that he was inside the brothel, the gang paid a prostitute to lure him out and when they stepped out and were negotiating how much he would pay for a night with her, the gang pounced on him and stabbed him to death before disappearing into the night.
A fellow commercial sex worker who narrated how the incident happened, said:
"Saheed (victim) came inside to drink, and he was strolling out with one of the 'ashewo' to negotiate when the incident happened. I think the assailants were cultists, and they had been lurking around the area for very long. As soon as he came out of the gates, he was attacked.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Patricia Amadin, who confirmed the incident, said investigation was ongoing on the matter.
