This is a story of how a young woman slumped and died after consuming a locally manufactured gin known as ‘ogogoro’.
The woman, (name withheld ) who is know as a prostitute in Obalende Lagos was said to have drank the local liquor without eating any food.
The deceased from Imo state was said to have been warned severally by her colleagues to desist from drinking the liquor on an empty stomach. She blatantly refused to heed their warning.
How she died
According to an eyewitness:
She drank one bottle of ogogoro in the morning and drank another bottle of the gin in the evening at about 6.30 pm without eating any food. She suddenly screamed ‘my stomach’, ‘help me’ and slumped.
She died before we could take her to the nearest hospital for treatment,
Lesson learnt, don’t drink ogogoro on an empty stomach.
Remember ogogoro +empty stomach=death
