Lagos—Operatives of the Lagos State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba, are currently investigating the death of a  middle-aged man, identified as Anuoluwapo Saheed, who was reportedly stabbed to death at a hotel in Abule Egba area of Lagos.

It was learned that the victim, Saheed was attacked by hoodlums led by a one Emmanuel, on July 30, in front of Buffalo Hotel, located along Akerele Street in the Abule Egba area.

Vanguard gathered that the hoodlums traced the victim to the hotel where he was drinking with his friends. He was lured outside the hotel by a sex worker attached to the hotel before they pounced on him.

Anuoluwapo Saheed was allegedly stabbed while conversing and romancing the yet-to-be identified commercial sex worker at the gate of the hotel.

An eyewitness, who identified herself as Taye Adeokya, told Vanguard that the victim was not stabbed inside the hotel.

”He came inside to drink, and he was strolling out with one of the hotel sex workers when the incident happened. I think the assailants were cultists, and they had been lurking around the area for very long. As soon as he came out of the gates, he was attacked,” she said.

It was gathered that the victim was later rushed to a nearby hospital, but bled to death.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Patricia Amadin, confirmed the incident, saying investigation was ongoing on the matter.
