Two female commercial sex workers have escaped ritual murder at a popular hotel along Ebeano Tunnel, Ogui Road, in Enugu.

They were said to have been kidnapped and kept in the hotel after a meeting with some men suspected to be organ harvesters.

The ladies were reported to have entered the hotel (names withheld) on Thursday night, July 4, 2024, accompanied by the two men.

This information was revealed in a viral video seen by our correspondent.

VONa reports that the ladies had their mouths and hands tied, as well as legs bound by the men, who allegedly kept them inside the hotel room toilet.

Investigations revealed that the ladies overheard the suspects discussing and bargaining with their clients over the phone, negotiating prices for specific body parts.

It was further learnt the suspects left for final physical negotiation after misunderstanding with their buyer/client over the phone.

Meanwhile, hotel staff members rescued the ladies and found human organs, two sharp knives, a cutlass, and a cooler for packaging the desired body parts in the hotel room around 3 pm on Friday.

Reacting over the incident, the spokesman of the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe said, “preliminary investigation revealed a case of demanding money with menaces and fraud, and not murder or human organs or parts harvesting as being peddled.

“Further revelation showed that the ladies, operating as commercial sex workers, made out with the young men on July 3, 2024, in a hotel (names withheld) along Agbani Road, Enugu. They had another appointment the following day and met the suspects in the hotel where the incident occurred.

“At the hotel, the suspects beat and tied up the girls in the hotel’s room toilet after menacingly demanding and obtaining their phones and account details, including their Personal Identification Numbers (PINs).

“They surreptitiously found their way out of the hotel before the victims were rescued, as seen in the video. They further fraudulently withdrew a cumulative sum of one hundred and twenty thousand (N120,000.00) from the victims’ accounts”.

The police also disclosed that a bag containing two kitchen knives and sportswear, left behind by the suspects, was recovered while an intelligence-guided investigation to fish out and bring the fleeing suspects to book is ongoing.

The Command advised owners and managers of hotels to exercise the highest standards of security alertness and ensure that lodgers are properly screened, and their verifiable details obtained before being accommodated.

It also cautioned young ladies against going out with unknown persons, particularly males, under any guise to avoid falling prey to similar criminals and their activities.
