How Two Died In Lagos Building Collapse During S3x
Daily Trust reports that the house located at 2/4 Oye Sonuga Street, Palm Avenue, Mushin, caved in on Friday, killing four persons.
“In fact they were naked when their bodies were recovered,” one official told our correspondent pleading anonymity.
As of Friday, the emergency responders from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the state emergency management agency (LASEMA) and the Fire Service had reached ground zero with four bodies recovered while one person was rescued.
The victims were said to be prostitutes and their ‘clients’.
Another official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to talk to the press, said, “We were shocked by what we saw at the scene. The last two victims whose dead bodies were recovered were actually having sexual intercourse. The man was on top of the prostitute when the building collapsed. They both died.”
Another official said, “The place was used as a Club House/Motel and the female victims were actually prostitutes; the last female we recovered was with a man. They were having a nice time when we recovered them.”
LASEMA said the recovered dead bodies, which comprised of two adult males and two adult females, “were dug up from beneath the rubbles of the collapsed portion of the 3-storey building after the Agency deployed its sophisticated echo and life detection equipment which pinpointed exact location of the trapped victims, while the light and heavy equipment were deployed in accordance with the path that was charted by the echo machine.”
