The price of adultery is always tragic if one considers what happened at the weekend in Lagos between a young man and a married woman in a hotel room.
The man took the housewife identified as Glory Abbey to a popular hotel where she died during sex romp between the lovers.
The yet to be identified man quietly abandoned her corpse in the room they lodged and fled without informing the hotel’s management about what happened.
The incident happened at Kings of Queens Hotel located at 11, Otunba Oladokun Street, Lanre Bus Stop, Igando, Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.
What could have caused her death was not yet known because the autopsy report is not yet out.
According to the hotel’s manager identified as Saliu, the woman came to the hotel with the young man, booked a room and went in.
“After staying for several hours in the room the man came out and told the security men that he wanted to buy food outside and he did not return to the hotel,” he said.
They later discovered the woman lying dead on the bed in the room.
Saliu said he did not see any physical injury she sustained and could not explain what really caused her death.
The owner of the hotel, Otunba Richard Oladokun, who also confirmed the incident, expressed shock over what happened.
He said he was informed about what happened on phone by his manager and he went to the police station at Igando and reported the matter.
He said he came with the police to the hotel and found the woman lying dead on the bed and the police took away her corpse to the mortuary.
Oladokun said what surprised him most was that the young man who brought the woman to the hotel initially picked his calls and promised to come back but did not. Rather, he later switched off his phone and no one has been able to contact him again since the incident happened.
Nobody has been able to contact the woman’s husband or relatives as there is no address to trace them at the time of this report.
Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, described Glory’s death as sudden and unnatural.
She said her body has been deposited at the mortuary for autopsy, while the police have since commenced investigation into the matter.
A similar incident happened sometime ago when a married woman who had four kids was found dead after she went to a hotel in Mushin with her lover who is also married and has kids. During the sex romp, the woman collapsed and died.
After she died, her lover attempted to escape but he was caught and handed over to the police.
The police later charged him with murder at Ebute Meta Magistrate’s Court Lagos.
