A suspected sex worker has slit the stomach of her client, Sunday Emmanuel with a blade, and killing him in the process.

The incident occurred at the FESTAC Town in the Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State.

The deceased, Emmanuel, who was also a trader, had a makeshift shop on First Avenue, where he sold alcoholic drinks.

According to reports, Precious frequently visited the spot at odd hours in search of customers, but around 4 am on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, an argument ensued between her and Emmanuel.

A source further revealed that the argument turned into a fight, as Precious brought out a blade and slit the stomach of the 32-year-old.

“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.

“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,” the source stated.

When she was handcuffed, she did not show any signs of remorse, until when they were transferring the case and she was told that she might never come back, the source added.

She was taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.
