Dead woman discovered in a hotel in Lagos; partner missing

Woman Discovered Dead in Lagos Hotel, Partner Unaccounted for

A woman, whose name is still unknown, was discovered dead in a hotel room in Lagos State’s Morogbo neighbourhood.

The incident happened on Friday, November 31; it was discovered following the woman’s check-in at the hotel with a male partner. Earlier that day, they had paid for a brief stay.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident.
The resident said the hotel owner was immediately alerted while the workers searched around for the whereabouts of the male guest.

The woman, accompanied by a male partner, had checked into the hotel earlier in the day, having paid for a brief stay. The seemingly routine check-in took a dark turn when the hotel staff encountered difficulties accessing the room following the check-out time. The discovery of the deceased woman has prompted a thorough investigation into the timeline of events leading up to this tragic incident.

The hotel receptionist discovered the room was locked when she tried to give it to another patron. Using a spare key, the hotel personnel unlocked the door and found the woman lying on the bed, motionless.

A resident in the community who spoke with Punch on 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 resident said the hotel owner was immediately alerted while the workers searched around for the whereabouts of the male guest.

All efforts to locate him were unsuccessful, as their record was not taken by the receptionist when they first arrived.

The resident added, “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 records of the customers. The hotel also does not have a CCTV camera.”

The state police public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident.

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.”
