The body of a 16-year-old girl identified as Nengi Enenimiete has been found in a hotel wardrobe in Twon-Brass Island, Brass Local Government Area (LGA) of Bayelsa State.
The body was already decaying when it was found by a cleaner in the hotel.
The male guest who had reportedly lodged with her on Saturday had checked out.
No physical injuries, mutilation and strangulation on the corpse of the deceased as reported by a source from the hotel.
Residents have demanded that an autopsy be carried out on the deceased even as they have continued to push for the arrest of the mysterious male guest.
Findings indicate that the deceased was introduced to the male guest on Saturday by her friend. They both lodged at the hotel on Saturday until he checked out on Sunday.
A source in the hotel said, when the manager arrived and checked the room, he found that it was messed up and directed the cleaner to tidy it up for another guest. But when the cleaner noticed water dripping on tiles from another part of the room, he had to check the wardrobe.
“While they were checking the room, they perceived an offensive odour and started searching for the source. They later discovered the lifeless body of the deceased in the wardrobe,” he said.
The state police spokesman, SP Asinim Butswat, while confirming the incident, said the corpse had been evacuated and deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.
Butswat confirmed that investigation into the matter has commenced.
