Could it be a case of Magun, the African sexual deterrent imposed on an adulterous woman by a suspicious husband and which if used according to specifications, would ensure the sure demise in painful circumstances of either the man or both lovers, usually in the act.
Or could it be poising , suffocation? These are the questions the police in Lagos are trying to unravel after a couple was found dead while making love in a car.
Man, woman found dead inside vehicle
The man and a woman were found dead a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) on Sunday night at Jakande Estate, Isolo, Lagos, by neighbours who got curious because the car’s engine was on from Saturday.
Of course it couldn’t have been suffocation as the car engine was on meaning that the car air condition was equally running.
But the police said it is only autopsy that can reveal the cause of death.
The man simply identified as Koyejo, a married IT engineer, was said to have moved out of Jakande Estate to Surulere with his wife.
According to information, Koyejo had picked up his unnamed lover at Isolo while he was heading to his family’s house in Jakande Estate, Isolo, his friends had said, claiming that he told them ahead of his visit.
He was said to have stopped to buy suya before parking at Double Star Junction to have some fun inside the car.
Narrating the story, a friend of the deceased who does not want to be mentioned in the media said, the sight of an unmoving vehicle with the engine running overnight raised suspicion among neighbours who decided to move closer to see who what could have happened.
The source added, “By the time people put on their torchlight, they saw it was Koyejo, our former guy. But we do not know who the girl was.
“It was this evening that we were told he went to pick the girl at Isolo. They bought suya at Moshalashi bus stop. One thing led to another and they started making love in the car.
“One of the men in our zone called Koyejo”s wife and she said she had been unable to reach her husband since Saturday, and that his phone had been switched off.
“We had to contact policemen at Ejigbo who came to take them away with the car. Koyejo’s body had started peeling. The girl’s nose was bringing out blood.”
