A man simply identified as Isaac is on the run in Lagos after he nearly killed a housewife, Mrs. Anita Ekpeyong, who he convinced to have sex with him after promising her N3,000.
He however, refused to pay the sum, and instead beat the mother-of-two to a pulp and bundled her into a well, abandoning her to die, Vanguard reports.
The report said the incident happened at White Sand, Isheri Oshun, in Lagos.
It said Mrs. Ekpeyong had left her husband, Ifeanyi, and their children at their abode, an uncompleted building at Aladura Mosque Street on the grounds that she was going to charge her phone when Isaac accosted her in the street.
He reportedly convinced her to follow him to his one-room rented apartment at 4, Kilanko Street, and had sex with him with the promise to pay her N3,000.
But trouble erupted after Isaac finished sleeping with the married woman. Rather than paying her, he was said to have attacked her and beat her to a pulp, the report said.
It added that he dragged his victim to a well and dumped her inside abandoning her to die.
“I did not know the man before. He only stopped me and asked how much I would take for the service and I said N3,000. But when he finished he refused to pay.
“Rather, he threatened to kill me and dump my body in the bush. He started dragging me out of his house and at the same time hit me on my head.
“He collected my Nokia Android phone and the money I had earlier worked for. He covered my mouth with cloth to prevent me from shouting and gave me a hard fist on my jaw, which forced a tooth to fall off.
“He dragged me out of his compound to about five buildings away from his. At a point, I was so weak and passed out. The next time I opened my eyes, I found myself inside a well.
“The luck I had was that the water level was just up to my chest. That was when I yelled for help,” the paper quoted Mrs. Ekpeyong as saying.
