At Eagle Rock Garden and Suite, 102 Yale Okeowo Street, off Community Road in Ago Palace, Lagos, a lifeless body of a 28-year-old lady has been discovered in one of the room.
It was gathered that the sad incident happened on Wednesday when a young man identified only as Kelvin checked in with the lady. After some minutes, he left the lady behind in the room claiming he was going to a club but never returned.
A staff in the hotel who spoke with Vanguard in a condition of anonymity said the lifeless body of the young lady was found on Thursday.
He said: “A young man arrived at the hotel around 11 p.m. on Wednesday with his girlfriend, who appeared to be around 28 years old. He made a transfer payment of N9,000 for the lodging and entered the room with her. Shortly after, he came downstairs, inquiring about the closing time of the hotel gate as he planned to visit a club,” the staff member stated.
“He assured us that he would return soon because his girlfriend was still inside the room. The following morning, despite numerous attempts to gain access by knocking on the door, there was no response.
“Peering through the window, we were alarmed to see a leg on the floor. We immediately alerted the manager, who subsequently contacted the Ago Palace Division of the police. Upon breaking open the door, a horrifying sight awaited us: a lifeless, unclothed body of a lady lying on the floor.”
The Lagos State Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident, he stated, “I am aware of the incident, and an investigation is currently underway. The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti.
“Upon the arrival of the Ago Palace Police Division at the hotel, they discovered the lifeless body of a woman lying on the floor. It was observed that an inhaler used for catarrh was in her nose.”
