A man, identified as Ogadinma Chukwu has lost is life while having sex with a commercial sex worker at a popular brothel, New Nigeria City Hotel, located at along St. Michael’s road, Aba, Abia state.
Sources said the deceased whom they alleged to be a regular visitor to the brothel, died while on top of the prostitute.
It was gathered that immediately Chukwu slumped and died, the prostitute contacted her colleagues and the manager of the brothel who moved his corpse to a sanitary lane at the back of the brothel.
As a result of the development, shop owners around the area quickly closed business for fear of police arrest. Some of them who spoke anonymously to our reporter disclosed that some staff of the brothel at about 5pm brought out the corpse through their backyard, dropped it at the sanitary lane and disappeared.
When our correspondent visited the area, the brothel was deserted as people were gathered at the adjoining St. Michaels road by York street junction and Hospital road. A cross section of sympathizers at the area said the deceased may have died of a cardiac arrest or exhaustion as white foams gushed out of his mouth.
Policemen from the Aba Central Police Station (CPS), who conducted a search the scene, recovered an ATM card, a cheque book, cash of over N200, 000 and a Man ‘O’ War Association of Nigeria identity card, bearing the name, Ogadinma Chukwu.
When contacted, the Commander, Man ‘O’ War Association, Aba, Uche Egbuziem, identified Ogadinma Chukwu as a former member of the Man ‘O’ War Association of Nigeria, stressing that the deceased and some other members of the defunct group still use their old Identity Cards.
Abia Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Geoffrey Ogbonna could not be reached for comments as at the time of filing this report, but a senior police officer said the corpse has been deposited in a mortuary, stressing that an autopsy may be conducted to determine the cause of the man’s death
