It was gathered that man had gone to the Ace Bar in the Akoka area of Yaba, Lagos, with his married lover on Sunday. Around 7pm, the woman called for help after him reportedly slumped.
A source, who preferred not to be named, said by the time the man was taken to the hospital, he was confirmed dead.
The source said, “The incident happened around 7pm on Sunday. The man came in with the woman. After some time, she called for help saying that the man had slumped. As soon as the hotel management was alerted to the incident, the man was taken to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.
“Immediately the man was confirmed dead, his corpse was taken to the police station in a taxi together with the woman, and the case was reported. It was from there that the police took over the case and the body was deposited in the morgue for autopsy.”
A resident of the area, who spoke to The Punch on condition of anonymity, however, said the mistress was also married and a nursing mother.
“The woman is a seamstress at the Sabo Market. She left her six-month-old baby to meet the man after church service on Sunday. Her husband had been warning the man to leave his wife alone, all to no avail, and her husband had to bring the child to her at the police station after she was arrested.
“The man also had two wives and one of his daughters got married last year. He was a retiree and had just received his pension.
“The news going round is that after the s*x romp, he took two bottles of water and while he was taking his bath, he slumped and foamy substances came out of his mouth. It is hard to tell if he died of cardiac arrest or due to unnatural circumstances,” the source added.
When the correspondent visited the bar, efforts to speak with the manager proved abortive. The attendant claimed that the manager was not available and she refused to put a call through to him.
When the state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, was contacted, he said investigation into the incident was ongoing.
