Police in Anambra say a man has died in a hotel in the commercial city of Onitsha after taking sex enhancement drugs.
Paul Okwudili, 40, died early Monday around 3 am after having sex with an unidentified woman at Plus View Hotel.
Mr Okwudili had lodged in the hotel with the lady, police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, said in a statement.
However, later that night, the lady raised an alarm that the man had collapsed.
The hotel’s management was said to have taken the man to a hospital where he died.
“Minutes later, the lady came out shouting for help and the hotel management went to the room and discovered the man gasping for breath and rushed him to St Charles Borromeo Hospital Onitsha for medical attention, where the victim was later confirmed dead by a medical doctor on duty,” the statement read.
The spokesperson noted that investigation so far suggests that the man might have taken some sex performance-enhancing drugs, which may have contributed to his death.
Police said the woman is in their custody and is being interrogated.
“The lady is 30 years old. She alleged that the man promised to marry her when she takes in. She also claimed that the victim’s organ refused to stand initially, so he took drugs in her presence and that after some time, the male organ got erected and they started,” the statement read.
Mr Mohammed said the corpse has been deposited at the hospital’s morgue.
