Six persons were found dead and two unconscious this morning in a hotel known as 50-50 located around Uyo street close to First Bank in Umuahia, Abia State capital.
Abia Facts Newspaper gathered that the hotel is a brothel and the girls living there have had the experience of mysterious slaps some weeks back that left one person unconscious. This incident of strange slaps made all the occupants of the brothel leave, only for the owner to recruit new ladies from other cities.
Unfortunately, 3 ladies and their customers are today not alive to tell the story of what happened or what befell them overnight that left them dead.
All the six dead bodies have been deposited at the morgue as of press time, and the two unconscious bodies taken to the hospital.
The Nigerian Police have cordoned off the hotel, as the crowd builds up around the environment to catch a glimpse of what happened.
We also received a report of the Nigerian Police shooting canisters of tear gas into a nearby Hospital (Life Essential Hospital) in a bid to disperse the crowd.
