Lifeless Body of 28-Year-Old Woman Found at Lagos Hotel: Suspect on the Run
A tragic incident unfolded at Eagle Rock Garden and Suite, located at 102 Yale Okeowo Street, off Community Road in Ago Palace, Lagos, as the lifeless body of a 28-year-old lady was discovered in one of the hotel’s rooms.
The unsettling discovery was made on Thursday morning, when hotel staff found the lifeless body of the young woman in the room. According to an anonymous staff member, the unfortunate events began the previous night when a young man, identified as Kelvin based on the receipt from the hotel receptionist, checked into the hotel with the lady.
The young man made a payment of N9,000 for the room and left the lady behind in the room, stating that he would return after visiting a club. However, the next morning, all attempts to reach the room and get a response were in vain, and the staff noticed a leg through the window, raising immediate concern.
The manager was informed, and the police from the Ago Palace Division were contacted. Together, they broke open the door and were met with a horrifying sight – the lifeless, unclothed body of the young lady lying on the floor.
The news of the tragedy quickly spread, prompting concerned individuals in the area to raise the alarm and bring attention to the incident. Vanguard reporters arrived at the hotel to investigate, noting that the establishment was still open but had few customers at the time.
The Lagos State Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed that an investigation was underway. The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, for further inquiries.
Authorities are on the lookout for the prime suspect, Kelvin, who was the last person seen with the victim at the hotel. The police continue their efforts to piece together the events leading up to the woman’s untimely death and gather evidence that might shed light on the tragic incident.
As the investigation unfolds, the community mourns the loss of the young woman and anxiously waits for answers surrounding the circumstances of her death.
