Two men, a patent medicine dealer and an auto-mechanic, in Agbobi Community, Agbor, Delta State, have died after a sex bout with two women. The police moved swiftly, arresting both women and two others identified as their friends, suspected for being involved in the death of both men.
According to reports, both men died after alleged being deceived into having sexual intercourse with two of the suspects, after they had confessed that they had been divorced from their husbands.
But a senior police officer in Agbor who did not want his name in print disclosed that upon interrogation, both women confessed that they were married; but were, actually, lured into having sexual intercourse in one of the hotels outside Agbobi.
Speaking to journalists, the acting police spokesman in the state, DSP Charles Muka, said investigation into the issue was on-going, and added that the death of both men was mysterious, considering the circumstances in which they died.
According to the families of both men, they returned home last Monday, vomiting. Shortly after, they both had swollen stomachs and were rushed to a nearby hospital where they died a few minutes after some drugs had been administered.
The suspects identified as Patient Ikeawu, 35; Elizabeth Otore, 32; Ngozi Ikoh, 34, and Mabel Ifeh, 34, are presently helping officers of the Agbor Police Division in their investigations.
LEADERSHIP FRIDAY checks revealed that it has become common for married women in the community to deceive men into sleeping with them. Elders of the communities have described the situation as a taboo, saying that those who get involved in such acts will die, while the women, in no distant time, will go mad.
