A Nigerian prostitute in Ghana almost lost her life after her Ghanaian counterpart stabbed her for snatching her customer.
According to a Nigerian trader who lives in Accra, Festus Okolie, the lady whose name is Lovina, was rushed by other Nigerians in the area to a hospital where she was stitched up and treated.
This is how Okolie sent the story:
"It was a sad incident which almost erupted in a serious crisis between Nigerians living here and the Ghanaians. It happened at the Kwame Nkruma Circle, a popular and notorious red light district here in Accra where prostitutes from different parts of West Africa operate.
In fact, we call the place Ecowas because you have different nationals there. Ask anybody in Accra and they will tell you that Kwame Nkruma Circle is the most notorious red light here.
The incident happened on Saturday, June 19, when Lovina was stabbed by the Ghanaian 'Ashewo'.
We do not know her name but we gathered that they both operate in the same brothel and on that day, a man who is said to be a regular customer of the Ghana prostitute came visiting but she was inside with another man.
The man who must have been sex-starved, could not wait and he went to meet Lovina who took him to her room for sex.
But when the Ghana prostitute came out and was told that her customer was inside with Lovina, she waited for her outside her door and when she came out with the man, the Ghanaian prostitute attacked her and in the process, broke a bottle and stabbed her in the head.
Some other Nigerian girls in the brothel rushed her to a hospital before coming to inform our men but by the time we stormed the place, she had been whisked away otherwise we would have thought her a lesson.
We heard she was arrested by the police but was later released. Our leaders have met with their leaders and the issue has been resolved."
