A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member has been found dead in a hotel room in Abuja few days to her passing Out Parade, (POP). following her meeting with a yet to be identified male companion.
The corps member was identified as Amaka Asikaogu.
According to a news report, the late Amaka and her male friend checked into the New England Hotel in Abuja on Saturday evening, after which the man ordered food and drinks.
Shortly after the two were served their order, the man left Amaka behind in the hotel room. As gathered, the hotel staff who saw the man leaving the hotel asked about the lady (Amaka) that accompanied him, and he assured them she is fine and was alone in the room.
The hotel workers checked on Amaka by placing a call to her room, which she answered, confirming that she was fine and alone in the room. She was said to have been alone in the room till the following day. However, the suspicion started when Amaka was nowhere to be found after checkout time.
The management, being worried, had to force their way into the room only to find Amaka’s lifeless body. One of her family friends, who pleaded anonymity, told reporters that her parents had sent her money 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 the weekend before she get the accommodation before the unfortunate incident happened.”
