Adeshina Olayinka, also known as Khadi, a popular Instagram cloth vendor, was discovered dead at a hotel in the Akobo area of Ibadan, Oyo State.
On social media, Olayinka was known for her designer clothing and bag business.
According to Oyo Affairs, she informed her friend of a meeting with someone at the Wetland Hotel in Akobo on the evening of Wednesday, April 5.
The man she was with, on the other hand, checked out early on Thursday morning, prompting a phone call to Khadi’s room, where she confirmed her safety to the receptionist.
Unfortunately, Khadi was discovered dead hours later after the receptionist called to tell her she was already overstaying.
In response, the hotel management stated that they were fully cooperating with the Nigeria Police in their investigation to ensure that the truth about the deceased’s death was upheld.
“To the general public and our dear valued guests, we regret to inform you that an unfortunate incident occurred at our hotel, Wetland Hotel. One of our guests passed away while staying with us.
“We are fully cooperating with the authorities in their investigation into this matter, and we assure you that we are doing everything we can to assist the police in their efforts to determine the cause of death.
“Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our guests and staff are our top priority. We have taken all necessary measures to ensure that our facilities and services continue to meet the highest standards of hygiene and safety.
“As the investigation is ongoing, we kindly ask for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
“We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased, and we offer our support to all those affected by this tragic event,” the management said in a statement.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, could not be immediately reached for confirmation as calls and text message made to his phone line had yet to be responded to.
