Two yet-to-be-identified suspected lovers have caused a stir after residents spotted them walking naked around the Victoria Garden City, Ajah area of Lagos State.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the lovers were walking around the estate unclad when residents alerted the estate management and security guards.
“They are walking inside VGC, I kid you not, this is not a joke,” a resident who filmed them said in a video clip posted on the Instagram page of a television station, Sliverbirdtv.
It was learnt that some representatives of the estate mobilised to the location and accompanied the couple to their residence on Close 63 on the estate.
Our correspondent learnt that things took another turn when the lovers, while in their apartment, inflicted injuries on their wrists and necks in an attempt to commit suicide.
In another video clip, some residents were heard engaging the duo as they laid on their bed.
The residents, while insisting on reporting the incident to the police, instructed the duo to get up from the bed.
Bloodstains were seen on the floor of the apartment.
The lovers were quoted as saying they would die and rise again after three days.
“Further investigation of their BQ apartment revealed some items such as illegal drugs and other substances. They were obviously under the influence of some drug abuse.
“Thank God for the swift response of the management, security and medical team who eventually sedated the victims and took them to a hospital around 12.45am,” the Instagram post read.
Also, a message the lovers pasted on the door leading of their apartment read, “If you open this door, you will be cursed.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the incident was not reported to the police.
The Chairman, VGC, Gihan Mbelu, said the couple acted under the influence of drugs, adding that he took them to a hospital and they were discharged after two days.
He said, “The incident happened around 8pm on Saturday. Before I got there, passersby had already taken pictures and made a video of the two young people. I am using this medium to tell people to stay away from drugs.”
