Female Corps Member Dies In Abuja Hotel Few Days To Passing Out

The late Amaka and her male friend checked into a hotel, located at Wushishi street, off Ladoke Akintola Boulevard, Garki, Abuja, on Friday evening after which the man ordered for food and drinks.

According to reports, shortly after  they were served the order as requested, the man left the hotel leaving  Amaka alone in the room

The hotel staff who saw the man leaving the hotel asked about the lady (Amaka) who accompanied him, and he assured her  that she was fine and resting in room.

The deceased confirmed that she was fine, when the hotel workers called the room to confirm what the man said.

According to the staff, Amaka  was alone till the following day, Saturday  “When it was time for her to check out, Amaka was not seen, so we made calls to  her room, but no answer. Curiously, we  forced the room open and found Amaka, but she was  lifeless.”

A distant family friend who spoke on the condition of  anonymity, said that Amaka’s parents sent her money few days ago for rent when she complained that the person she was staying with asked her to leave the house.

The family friend said;

It was like she was waiting for the end of weekend before she would  get the accommodation before the unfortunate incident happened.

Mr. C.Y. Asikaogu, the father of the deceased said he was yet to get the details of what transpired.

He said;

I will be in Abuja on Monday so that I can get full details of what happened. The available information is still sketchy. I will get more details myself when I get to Abuja

Mr Anjuguri Manza, federal Capital Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), confirmed the incident but declined further comment, saying;

The information about the death of a lady in a hotel in Garki got to me on Sunday afternoon. We are in touch with NYSC to ascertain the true identity of the deceased before we  can make any official statement on the sad event.
