A young lady has been found dead in a hostel around Morogbo in the Badagey area of Lagos State.

Wakadaily learnt that the incident happened  on Friday November 31, after the deceased logged into the hotel with her boyfriend for a short rest.

An eyewitness who spoke on the condition of anonymity said: “The two guests arrived at the hotel in the morning. After paying, they collected the key to their room and went inside. It was later around 10 pm when the hotel attendant wanted to give the room to another customer that they started to look for the key to the room.

When they got there, they discovered it was locked. They also knocked but no one answered. They later banged on the door yet no one answered. They had to get a spare key and when the door was opened, only the female guest was found lying naked on the bed. Her body was covered with a bedspread. It was also discovered that her clothes and phone were taken away.”

The source added that the hotel owner was immediately alerted while the workers searched around for the whereabouts of the male guest.

“The hotel workers searched everywhere as they were also joined by some other persons in an attempt to locate the suspect. It was that same night that the director of the hotel went to report to the police. The police came that night, took pictures of the lady and took her body away. It was difficult to locate her partner because the receptionist did not take the record of the customers. The hotel also does not have a CCTV camera.”

Meanwhile, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident said the receptionist has been arrested.

He said, “The corpse has been deposited in the morgue. The owner of the hotel has been arrested along with the receptionist. The case will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.”
