Staff dies in hotel room

One Ifunaya Eke, an hotel staff was last Tuesday, allegedly found dead in a room where she slept, at an hotel in Ikotun area of Lagos State.

The Lagos State Police Command has begun investigations into her sudden death.

Lagos Metro gathered that the hotel management had reported the case at the Ikotun Police station as detectives visited the scene of the death. When the police visited, there was no trace of violence found on her body.

A police source said that since there was no clue to her death, it was only an autopsy that would determine the true cause of her death.

He said, “It is very true that the management of the hotel called us to the scene of the incident. They explained that the woman had been a staff in the hotel for a while and that she usually stayed in her room anytime she is on night duty and that when they noticed that she did not come out the next morning, they went inside to check on her and they discovered she was dead.”

When contacted, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus, said that policemen from the Ikotun division examined and photographed the scene. She added that the corpse had been taken to the General Hospital, Isolo, morgue for autopsy.
