The rector is said to have died in one of the rooms at a hotel, Zekoh Place, Onoharigho street, Ughelli in Bayelsa. He was rushed to a clinic located few miles from the hotel where he was pronounced dead on arrival, Vanguard reports.
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 the newspaper.
Speaking further, the source said: “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.”
Suspecting foul play over the incident, a family member who spoke to Vanguard at the Rector’s Upper Agbarho residence said: “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.”
