A Nigerian lady who earned a living as a commercial sex worker in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates has reportedly lost her life after she jumped from a four-storey building to avoid being arrested by the police.
According to a Nigerian who lives and work in Dubai who sent the story to Pulse, the lady who was only known as Sophia, is said to be from Edo State and with other ladies, had been selling herself for money in that country.
The Nigerian narrated that Sophia who lived without papers decided to jump from her apartment when the police went to arrest her and others following a tip-off.
He added that her remains have been deposited in a mortuary as no one knew exactly where she came from and no links to her relatives whatsoever have been established.
This is what he sent to Pulse:
“To who it may concern, I am a Nigerian living and working in Dubai. I have to share this story on Pulse in case anyone knows this lady. There is this lady called Sophia but no one knows her real name or her surname.
She works as a prostitute here in Dubai and does not have any papers. She lived in Al-Baraha area in Deira, Dubai. No one knows her details though she told people she is from Edo State but we do not know her real hometown or her family members.
She and other ladies are into prostitution and they live together. One day, the police went to the apartment to arrest them and instead of waiting for the police, Sophia jumped through the window from the 4th floor and died instantly.
Her remains have been deposited at the mortuary. So if anyone you can do something to make her family and friends knows about this, we will appreciate it.
