Ghosts Kill Two, Leave Four Unconscious In A Brothel

Tragedy struck on Wednesday in Umuahia, Abia State capital as two lifeless bodies and four unconscious per­sons were found in a popular brothel located on 44, Uyo Street in the metropolis.
The incident was attrib­uted to the alleged invasion of the brothel by “ghosts.” The brothel, known as “50-50 Bars”, according to some residents, is often vis­ited by “mysterious beings” suspected to be ghosts. Although the identities of the casualties were not ascertained, sources in the neighbourhood said the dead included a male and a female while the uncon­scious were three males and a female.  A source said that a top official of the brothel was among the victims. The incident which occurred in the wee hours of Wednesday threw the neighbourhood into con­fusion as sex workers in the facility took to their heels. Meanwhile, armed po­licemen have since cor­doned off the building and restricted movements around the scene of the in­cident. Some of the commercial sex workers in the brothel often complained that spirits usually slap them at night.  Another source who lives close to the build­ing said he heard groanings from the brothel in the night but took it to be the normal noise from the building until early yester­day when he some com­mercial sex workers were evacu­ating their belongings. The source said the own­er of the brothel, a woman, recently relocated from Port Harcourt, Rivers State where she had been run­ning a similar business. When contacted, the Police Public Relations Of­ficer in the state, Mr. Ogbonna Nta, confirmed the incident and described it as “ugly and unfortunate.” He said two lifeless bod­ies (a male and a female) and four other unconscious persons – three males and a female – were evacuated from the building and tak­en to an undisclosed hospi­tal in town
