A man identified simply as ThankGod has been found dead in a hotel room at Eleparanwo in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
It was gathered that the man had checked into the hotel the previous night after he allegedly had a quarrel with his wife.
A staff member of the hotel, who found his body, told Punch that the man broke a mirror in the room he lodged, adding that he suspected the man used it to slit his throat.
The hotel worker said they became suspicious after nothing was heard from their guest after his time had elapsed.
“We went through the back and pushed the air conditioner to see if someone could go inside and open the bolt. In the process, we broke the door open. Everybody, even his family members were here. They came in and saw him. He broke our mirror and maybe used it to cut his throat. We saw the mirror in the bath. They (his family) saw everything and started shouting.” the worker said.
Spokesman of the state police command, Nnamdi Omoni, said he heard of the incident, but had yet to get a confirmation from the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the area.
