Man murders lover, flees hotel in Lagos
The Lagos State Police Command has launched a manhunt for a man suspected to have killed his lover at a hotel on Prince Adeyemi Street, Ikotun, area of the state.
The unidentified man, had lodged in a room in Taola Hotel with the victim around 9.30pm on Friday.

According to the Punch, the man paid for one hour which was supposed to last till 10.30pm.

The hotel staff, however, became worried when it was 12am and the guests did not check out of the hotel.

The manager, name given only as Ahmadu, was said to have gone to check the room only to discover that the woman was dead, while the suspect had fled.

Ahmadu reported the case at the Ikotun Police Division, while the remains of the victim were deposited in a morgue.

A resident of the area, Jibola Adesina, said no one could explain how the suspect escaped from the hotel.

“I learnt from one of the workers in the hotel that the man came out of the room around 10pm. He said he wanted to buy something outside. He left, but did not return. It was when they waited in vain for his lover to step out that they decided to go into the room. She was found dead,” he said.

A worker of the hotel, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the incident “shook everyone.”

He said the lovers had come to spend few hours and that their details were not collected because they did not have the intention of spending the night.

He said, “It was unfortunate. They just came to spend a short time together. That was why their details were not taken. The case was reported to the police.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, SP Dolapo Badmos, while confirming the incident, said the police were investigating the incident.
