Family of lawyer murdered in hotel in Ikeja demands answers from the police


The family of Barr. Feyisayo Obot who was allegedly killed in her hotel room in Ikeja, Lagos has issued an official statement to set the records straight and demand answers from the police.

At the moment, the Lagos State Police Command said it has arrested a murder suspect who allegedly snuffed the life out of the female lawyer in her hotel room in Opebi, Lagos state on January 26.

The family’s full statement read:

“Our attention has been drawn to an article across news blogs about Mrs Feyisayo Obot’s murder. On behalf of the family of the deceased, there is a need to set the perspectives right.

“This storyline is an outright misrepresentation of the truth and facts of our dear sister’s tragic cause of death. It is shocking for us as a family and particularly traumatising because this story was profiled as originating from the office of the Nigerian Police.

“Feyisayo Obot, a mother of two married to a very supportive man. She arrived Lagos from Abuja on 23rd January, 2019 to sit for her Project Management exams. She checked into Citiheights Hotel, 6 Sheraton Link Road, Opebi, Ikeja. Until her death she worked in the Abuja Office of Save the Children, an NGO as the National Administration Manager. She was billed to check out on 26th January 2019 and fly back to Abuja.

“Following their investigations the family was reliably informed by the Nigerian Police – SCIIB that it was a ‘hit job’, As a family, we were restrained from going public with our outcry because we had placed our trust and confidence in the commitment of the Nigerian Police and security agencies to bring justice to the family of the deceased.

“Investigations by the police revealed that the murder suspect arrived the hotel and checked in as a guest a few hours after late Feyisayo checked-in. What a coincidence?

“How did the murder suspect know she was on her way to Lagos and the hotel she would be staying?

“What were his initial reasons for booking the same hotel?

“Why did he overstay?

“Why not check out when his time ran out?

“Is it normal to check into a hotel and then randomly kill someone when you just realised you had overstayed by 2 days?

“According to the statement from the police, investigations revealed:

“During interrogation, the suspect confessed to have committed the crime. He said he has never met Ms Feyitayo Obot until the day he attacked her and that he was motivated to rob the deceased to enable him offset his hotel bill having spent two days above the one day he paid for.”

“Some unanswered Questions:

“How did he know the room to go to when it is on record that he was not staying on the same floor or even wing as the deceased?

“It is on record that the suspect also works in a restaurant on Victoria Island. Wonder why he came to pay 30k a room for three nights (60k)?

“How come he was even accommodated by the hotel without a valid means of identification in the first place?

“Why did the hotel not insist on him paying up his bills when he overstayed the first day?

“Based on the information from the police to the family, Joshua said he was paid to murder Mrs Feyisayo Obot. Who paid him? Does the Police know? We haven’t been informed.

“We are appreciative of the efforts and speedy response of the Nigerian Police and will continue to cooperate with them as they work on this case but it remains key to set the records straight as regards the investigation so far.

“For the family”

  4. She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.
    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.

  25. *I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
