The Delta State Police Command on Friday confirmed the death of a man in a hotel in the Ibusa community.

The Command spokesperson, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, told journalists on Friday in Asaba the incident occurred on Thursday in the Ibusa community, near Asaba.

She said the matter was reported at the Ibusa Police Division by the hotel management.

Onovwakpoyeya said: “We received a report of the incident and our officers went to the scene and removed the corpse.

“However, we have commenced an investigation into the matter.”

Sources in the community, however, alleged that the man died after a sex romp with a woman.

The deceased until his death, was a 55-year-old commercial bus driver.

“The man is married and lives in Ibusa with his family.

“On the day of the incident, he went to the hotel with his lady friend, a mother of three.

“We learnt that the lady sneaked out of the hotel room and told the hotel receptionist to check on the man that he was not feeling too well.

“It was the hotel receptionist that raised alarm after she saw the man lying motionless on the bed,” one of the sources said.

The source, who pleaded anonymity, further revealed that the lady went into hiding after she escaped from the hotel but was later apprehended by officers of Ibusa Police Division.  (NAN)
