A prostitute identified as Precious was found dead in a brothel in the Oshodi area of Lagos State, after she was allegedly strangled by one of her customers.
According to her colleagues, the prostitute took a customer into her room for an all night session but she never made it out the next morning. Her colleagues became worried as they knocked on her door and got no response. They subsequently broke into the room and found her strangled naked body on the floor.
They evacuated her corpse and reported the incident the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba, for further investigations.
One of the sex workers in the brothel said she suspected that Precious was strangled with a rope or cloth by her customer.
There is no doubt that she was strangled. There were marks in her neck, which showed signs of a struggle, and she was injured in the head. The man, who was with her throughout the night, fled the hotel before anyone knew.
The family members of the lady have not been seen. It was the hotel management that went to report the matter to the police. The persons arrested are still being questioned over the incident.
The police has begun investigating the incident.
