A man, identified as Akin, was found dead inside a containerised shop after reportedly having sex with his pregnant lover in the Ijora-Badia area of Lagos State.
The pair had checked into the shop last Thursday after its owner, who is his friend, closed for the day.
When the owner wanted to open his shop the next day, he found it locked from behind and the generator, which Akin had brought, was working. He called one Orebintin, coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress in the area, who broke into the shop from its roof.
Punch Metro reports that while Akin was found dead, his lover was still breathing and was rushed to a hospital for treatment.
A resident told the medium that Akin was an orange dealer at the Orile-Iganmu Market. She added that his wife had cursed him after learning of the incident, saying he had abandoned her with their four children without money for three weeks.
The deceased’s corpse, according to reports, has been released to his family for burial.
Bala Elkana, the police spokesman in the state, told Punch Metro that it could not be ascertained that the pair were having sex when the man, saying the man was wearing his boxers and the woman her dress.
