An undergraduate student of UNIBEN, Chinenye Nwoye who was on scholarship found dead in a hotel room at Abagana in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The deceased left home on Friday 27th of August, 2020 and never came back.

The deceased who held from Iruokpala, ire village in Abba Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State suspected have been in the hand of kidnappers or ritualists.


Deceased mother, Mrs Chinyere Nwoye said her daughter made a phone call to her family members to inform them that she was in danger and needed her ATM pin number to free herself from "kidnappers".

She and a member of her family fellowship, Brother Jude Okoye, narrated how they rushed to the hotel shortly after the deceased called them but it was too late.

Deceased mother said: "I had immediately dressed up and left for the said hotel with a family fellowship member. On arrival, we met some boys outside the hotel. When I asked the receptionist about my daughter’s whereabouts, they started checking for the booked rooms and overheard her telling one boy to give her the keys to room 57 and 58 and on refusal, the attendant sought for a spare key with which she opened the room and screamed out loud to everyone’s hearing ‘These people have killed somebody ooo’.

"I now ran upstairs and was shocked to see my daughter naked, lying face down with her hands and legs tied with her own clothes. From the clothes and the sandals, I knew it was my daughter. When the fellowship member with me started raising alarm, they now called the Police from Abagana Police Divison who came and took the body away."

"I did not waste any time in getting there, so there was no reason to kill my daughter. That hotel is a ritual place, and all of them know what happened to my daughter. It was even surprising that none of our kinsmen wanted to hear anything from me even when I went to tell them my story. That is why I am calling on government and human rights group to look into this matter and bring the killers of my daughter to book. This is a promising young girl that her life has just been terminated."

Her corpse was deposited at Bekee hospital mortuary Nimo while two of suspects were arrested.
