Hannah Saliu, a sex worker, is said to have been killed in Lagos state for holding the Quran in her home.
The event is believed to have occurred in the Alaba Rago axis of the state's Ojo LGA.

The guy paid N1,000 to Saliu for her service, but when he left the room, the deceased noticed that her N5,000 was stolen.
The deceased was reported to have approached the man and challenged him for taking her money, which escalated into a fight.
