A female adult, whose identity is still unknown, was discovered dead in a motel in Morogbo, Badagry, Lagos State.
The event occurred on Friday, November 31, after the deceased checked into the hotel with a male partner.
Both guests allegedly arrived at the hotel in the morning of the said day and paid for a short rest.
After a few hours, the receptionist, who was prepared to give the room to another customer, went to the room and discovered it was locked.
According to a community resident who spoke on Wednesday, the hotel worker later used a spare key to open the door and discovered the lady still on the bed motionless.
The resident, who craved anonymity due to the nature of the incident, 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.”
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.”
