Virtually all the brothels located in Osogbo, Osun State, were deserted on Sunday [Nov. 15] following the death of a man who patronised one of the prostitutes at a popular hotel known as Morak, Tribune Online reports. The development, which caused apprehension, forced most of the prostitutes in other brothels to take to their heels.
Tribune Online gathered that both the managers of almost all other brothels and ladies engaging in commercial sex in the hotels abandoned the brothels as police commenced investigation into the death of the yet-to-be identified man at Morak Hotel situated at Ago Wande area of Osogbo. Sources told Tribune Online that the man might have died due to exhaustion after a marathon sex with one of the prostitutes.
A shop owner at Ago Wande, who pleaded anonymity and claimed to have witnessed the evacuation of the corpse, told Tribune Online that "I was in my shop late that Saturday and before I left, many vehicles were parked near the brothel, but that did not raise any concern.
"When I resumed the next morning, I noticed that the brothel was virtually empty. There was no sign of life there at all. The entrance door was closed but door to the bar was slightly opened. Unknown to some of us, some of the occupants of the house confided in their friends about what happened before they ran away.
"Later around noon, policemen came and evacuated the body of the man. We were told his wife was among those that came with the police when the corpse was evacuated. But no one could identify the man in our area. His car was also taken away by the people that came with the police."
Confirming the incident, Osun State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kola Shodipo, expressed the resolve of his command to unravel the mystery behind the man's death.
