Three girls suspected to be prostitutes working in a pub in Nnewi, Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State, on Friday lost their lives in an inferno that ravaged the property.

The pub, Padded Joint, located at Ezekwuabo Otolo Nnewi, was said to have caught fire in the early hours of Friday.

Though the cause of the fire outbreak is yet to be ascertained, an eye witness who pleaded anonymity said that the owner of the motel whose real name is yet to be ascertained locked up the motel where the three girls slept before leaving for her house in the night.

It was gathered that the woman fondly called “Obodo Umu Anumanu,

usually locks up the drinking joint from outside after the close of the day’s business hence the three girls could not escape when the fire started.

The corpses of the deceased have been deposited at Nnewi Diocesan Hospital Akwudo.

Confirming the incident, the state Commissioner of Police, CP John Abang, said: “Yes, it’s a drinking joint and the waiters who do sleep over in the joint lost their lives. Very unfortunate.”

He said the owner of the joint has made useful information available to the police even as investigation continues.
