Residents of Kubwa, a satellite town in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, were shocked and scared following the news that a 27-year-old man was found dead in his room in the Pipeline area.
Neighbours of the deceased revealed that the man, who was identified only as Bello, spent the night with two women. They alleged that the women were prostitutes, and Bello invited them to his room on Sunday night “to have fun”.
The next morning, after the man was not seen outside, the neighbours raised the alarm and forced the door open.
According to reliable sources, Bello had been warned by his friends to desist from such acts, but all advice fell on deaf ears.
Commenting on the tragic incident, Badejo Yekini, the deceased’s landlord, said:
“I think he deserved what he got. He was a chronic womanizer who always derived pleasure in spending a whole night with prostitutes, not caring to know who they really were.
“To avoid such occurrences, men of this generation must learn how to control their libido.”
Meanwhile, a very close friend of the deceased, who pleaded for anonymity, said that he was “saddened” by the development. However, he confessed that the incident did not take him by surprise, adding: “I always warned him, but he would not listen”.
The remains of the deceased were taken to the mortuary at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, by his relatives.
