“I was unfortunate enough to book a room in the hotel on March 10. I escaped death only by Divine Providence. Their antecedents proved the fact that they are in the business of killing people for ritual purposes.

“I was brutally attacked in my room  a Commando’s style by three dreaded able-bodied young men, who broke into my room, but to their greatest surprise, I was able to escape after using my last strength to heat the particular one blocking the exit door.”

Ukadike also alleged that the hotel management has a hand in that attack “The attitude of the management and staff of the hotel when contacted proved that the attack was planned, coordinated and executed by them. I was pleaded with by the management not to contact the police; promising they will trace the attackers.

“I, therefore, use this opportunity to warn the general public to beware of this dangerous ritualism hotel called Explicit Lodge Ltd Located at Marathana, Avenue, behind Harvester Suit, New Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.”

When contacted by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO)said, “We have received the write-up, and we are now working on it.”
