It was gathered that he slumped in his hotel room, Zekoh Place, located at Onoharigbo street, Ughelli and was rushed to a nearby private clinic where he was confirmed dead on arrival.
“He had gone to the hotel in company of a female teenager and booked a room for an hour of love session with the girl,” a source at the Ughelli Area Command told Vanguard.
“The girl raised an alarm when the chief slumped but absconded following reports that the victim was confirmed dead. Though no arrest has been made in connection with the incident, a female manager of the hotel was arrested for questioning but has since been released.”
A family member said an autopsy is likely to be conducted:
“We are having a meeting with elders of the family if an autopsy would be conducted after which we would take a stand on the matter.”
