Police identify dead woman in Lagos hotel room

LAGOS — The Police in Lagos have identified the married woman whose corpse was discovered inside a hotel room in Igando area of Lagos, weekend, as Glory Abbey.

The deceased, as gathered, was taken to the hotel located on 11, Otunba Oladokun Street by Lanre bus-stop by a young man whose identity was yet to be ascertained at press time.

This is just as investigation, according to Police sources, showed that the body parts of the late Glory were intact  against widespread rumours that some  parts were missing.

Glory, as gathered, slumped during love making. Rather than rushing her to the hospital, the unidentified young man reportedly sneaked out of the room,  abandoning her.

A staff of the hotel who spoke on condition of anonymity told Vanguard that the lovers walked into the hotel where they booked a room last Friday. About two hours later, the young man was said to have walked out, informing the receptionist that he was going to get something outside.

Apprehension reportedly set in after Glory was discovered lying stone dead by one of the room service attendants, who raised alarm that alerted the hotel manager simply identified as Saliu.

Confirming the incident, spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, said: “About 0810 hours, one Glory, a lodger at the Kings of Queen Hotel was found dead in one of the hotel rooms. The corpse has been deposited at the Isolo General Hospital for autopsy.”

Police sources said effort was still on to arrest the deceased’s lover. It was gathered that although he was initially contacted on phone where he told policemen he would show up at the station, he never did. When his number was dialed, yesterday, it was switched off.
