Sylvester Idowu in Warri
There was pandemonium at a hotel in Ughelli, Ughelli South local Government Area of Delta State yesterday as the former Acting Rector, Federal Polytechnic, Ekowe, Bayelsa State, slumped and died during an alleged love session with an unidentified female teenager.
The ex-Rector, Chief Udele Emuhohwo was said to have slumped in his room at the hotel located at Onoharigho Street, Ughelli and was rushed to a private clinic, a few kilometers from the hotel where he was confirmed dead on arrival.
Sources at Ughelli Police Area Command told THISDAY: “He had gone to the hotel in company of a female teenager and booked a room for an hour of love session with the girl.”
Speaking further, the source said: “The girl raised an alarm when the chief slumped but absconded following reports that the victim was confirmed dead.
Though no arrest was made in connection with the incident, a female manager of the hotel was said to have been arrested for questioning but had since been released.
Suspecting foul play over the incident, a family member who spoke to journalists at the ex-Rector’s Upper Agbarho residence said: “We are having a meeting with elders of the family if an autopsy would be conducted after which we would take a stand on the matter.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Celestina Kalu, could not be reached for confirmation as she refused to pick her calls or respond to the text messages sent to her mobile phone.
