A woman’s lifeless body was discovered in one of the rooms of a guest home in Lagos’s Igbogbo neighbourhood of Ikorodu.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Police Public Relations Officer, informed the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the incident occurred on Saturday.
The spokeswoman verified that the guest house manager had reported the incident to the police.
The woman, who was about 46 years old, arrived at the hotel on a motorcycle with one Alfa Sule on Friday. An Alfa is a Muslim instructor.
The manager reported that the companion, of unknown address, lodged with the deceased later identified as Muinat.
He was going round the rooms on Saturday at about 6.00 a.m., when he saw the body but the man was nowhere to be found.
At the scene, the police observed foam oozing out of Muinat’s nostril but there were no marks of violence.
“Photographs were taken before the corpse was removed and deposited at Ikorodu General Hospital morgue for autopsy”, the PRO added.
Hundeyin said a manhunt has commenced to find Alfa Sule. The case will be handled by the Homicide unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department in Panti, Yaba.
