Police Puzzled as Monarch Dies in Hotel Room After Sex With Woman in ‘Hijab’
An emergency trip to hospital is never pleasant, but it’s certainly not something you would want to happen after sex.
“It’s not the most romantic ending a couple can imagine,” says Mike Ogar, a retired Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), who spent his last 12 years in service, managing the homicide section of the Lagos State Police Command Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).
He and his co-homicide detectives have handled plenty of cases, especially those related to male partner dying during sex or after. Ogar said “ I have handled a cases in which problems like migraine, heart problems, even amnesia were reported after sex. But I have never come across a case of the woman’s vagina clamping on to the man’s penis, but I think the whole idea was probably a belief in one traditional myth or the other.
But, whether the former cop believed it or not, a 44-year-old furniture maker, and a Bale of Papa, a community near Ewekoro in Ogun State, Aromimade Oguntade, allegedly got clamped to her female lover during rounds of sex in a popular hotel located a few kilometer from Ifo Local Government Headquarters, Ogun State and died last Tuesday. The mother and her female lover later died still stuck together and still in her ‘Hijab’, a Muslim women religious dress.
According to a top police source at Eleweron command Headquarters of Ogun State Police Command, the father of three hailed from Iwowo in Ogun State, had hurriedly left home that fateful day, after refusing the breakfast prepared by his wife, but ended up at a hotel on Apana Street, in Ifo, with his female lover.
The hotel staff discovered their lifeless bodies after several knocked at the door of the room. This was after the couple had stayed longer than the one-hour earlier booked. “Several intercom telephone calls were not answered by them, so we decided to go to the room and check out what went wrong. When we got there it was another rounds of knocking, yet no response, so our manager said the door should be forced open, because the couple also locked it with the bolt,” one of the Hotel staff narrated to the Police.
It was gathered that by the dead couple’s side was a packet of sex-enhancement tablet, Viagra. Men of the Ifo police division who collected his body, also took his SUV , his mobile phone and a cheque of N5 million allegedly issued by one of the Chinese construction companies working on some projects in the State.
The Police said, it suspected heart failure or some voodoo, “there is some power at work here, if it was heart failure, how come it happened to both the man and woman. I think it must be voodoo or some charm, placed on the woman by either her husband of someone, which reacted on the man,” the Policeman said.
The Ogun State Police spokesperson, Muyiwa Afolabi, who confirmed the development to our Correspondent in a chat, added that, the entire incident was bizarre. “Though this kind of thing has no place in law, but it happens. It is real and it is referred to in Yoruba part of Nigeria as ‘Magun’. It is usually done for promiscuous woman who would cheat on their husbands. But the problem is that, if a man decided to do that to his wife, that man must not also near that wife any longer, or else the man would die.”
Meanwhile, Police had said it would handle the case as a sudden and unnatural death. “Since we did not find any dangerous weapons within the crime scene, it would be treated as sudden and unnatural death. But we would have to question the hotel management, why they opened the door of the hotel room without first contacting the police,” said police detectives.
Checks by our correspondent revealed that the woman who was in her full ‘Hijab’, a religious garment worn by female Muslims must have visited the traditional ruler from a distant place. Police said messages and signals have already been forwarded across the state Police commands, reporting the death and asking people to come forward for identification. Meanwhile, their corpses have been deposited in Ifo General Hospital Mortuary.
