What residents say may have been strange and rampaging ghosts (spirits) have caused the death of two people in Abia state.
The weird incident happened yesterday in a popularly brothel called 50-50 Bar on 44 Uyo Street, Umuahia, Abia State.
The New Telegraph reports that one of the victims was a man while the other was a lady suspected to be a prostitute. Police also rushed six other people, who were unconscious, to an undisclosed hospital.
The cause of the incident was not known at the time of filing the report but a witness, who is also a resident of the area, said panic-stricken prostitutes rushed out of the brothel about 8a.m. and were shouting ‘ghost, ghost, ghost!’. This, according to the witness, drew the attention of passers-by and residents.
He said that from what the prostitutes were saying, the residents concluded that it was an attack by ghosts or spirits. He, however, said nothing of that nature had ever occurred in the area. The witness said the owner of the brothel, a lady, was living in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, before relocating to Umuahia for the business. According to him, the woman bought and renovated the building for the business.
He said the manager was among the unconscious victims of the mysterious attack taken to the hospital. The brothel, a one-storey building, is a modern structure with a bar in the front directly from the street.
