The body of a lady suspected to be in her late twenties and identified as Ugochi Nworie, has been found dead in a hotel room located on Mgbowe Street, Abakaliki, the capital city of Ebonyi State.

Neighbours claim some group of young men had taken the lady to lodge in the hotel on Monday night and left unnoticed, only for her lifeless body to be discovered the next day.

A source told AIT that the victim was suspected to be tipsy when she arrived at the hotel.

Confirming the incident, Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Loveth Odah, says preliminary investigations reveal that the deceased was ganged raped to death, as about 12 used condoms were found in the room.

Odah however, dispelled the rumour that the private parts of the lady were removed, explaining that no part of the deceased body was missing at the time her remains were picked from the hotel room.

The Ebonyi Police Command spokesperson notes that no arrest has been made yet, but efforts were on top gear to unravel and bring the perpetrators to book.
