A 37-year-old clearing agent, Sikiru Olanrewaju, has lost his life after leaving his wife and children at home to have fun with his girlfriend in Abule Egba, Lagos State. He died shortly after having rounds of s*x with his lover on Surulere Street.
According to Punch, the lover was said to have raised the alarm which drew the attention of residents, including the landlady, who reported at the Oke-Odo Police Division. Olanrewaju’s corpse was deposited in a morgue pending the conclusion of investigations.
A resident said, “The man was married, but he had a girlfriend who lived in Abule Egba. On August 23, he had finished from work when he called her on the telephone that he would be sleeping at her place. The girlfriend said she told him not to come because he was married, but he insisted on passing the night at her house.
The lady said when he got to her place, they ate the same food and drank the same water. They had s*x, after which they slept. She said around 5am, she woke up to go to work and discovered he was stiff. She said she tried hard to wake him up, but he didn’t respond.”
Olanrewaju’s family have, reportedly, said they don’t want the police to investigate anything. They said they had received the news in good faith and that the corpse should be released for burial in accordance with Islamic rites.
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations were ongoing. She said, “We discovered that there was no trace of violence on the body. The corpse has been deposited in a morgue.”
