Man flees after lover dies in Lagos hotel

19 July 2016, 06:24

Abuja - Police in Lagos State are in hot pursuit of a man suspected to have murdered his lover at a hotel in the Ikotun LGA, Punch reports.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, is alleged to have booked into a room at the Taola Hotel with his lover on Friday night.

After having paid for just an hour in the room, hotel workers began showing concern due to the fact that the guests had not left after approximately four hours at the establishment.

Ahmadu, the hotel manager, is said to have gone to take a look at the room when he discovered the woman's lifeless body.

Her lover was discovered to have fled the scene at the time.

A resident in the area, who spoke on condition of anonymity, claimed that the suspect had reported that he was stepping out of the hotel to buy something before he failed to return, sparking suspicion on the part of some workers at the establishment.

“I learnt from one of the workers in the hotel that the man came out of the room around 10pm. He said he wanted to buy something outside. He left, but did not return. It was when they waited in vain for his lover to step out that they decided to go into the room. She was found dead,” he said.

SP Dolapo Badmos, PR Officer for the Lagos State Command, has since confirmed that investigations into the matter are currently underway.
