An indigene of Ayetoro-Gbede in Ijumu LGA of Kogi State, Mr. Sola Mosiko, collapsed and died in a hotel room in Benin City, Edo State.

Mosiko is the Human Resources Manager of 7-Up Bottling Company at its Benin City plant.

Investigation reveals that Mosiko, 53, had gone to the hotel with a lady called Amen, a security  guard at the company, to have fun when the tragedy occurred.

The lady was arrested by the police after she fled from the hotel room immediately her boss cum lover slumped  and was grasping for breath.

Mosiko called at the hotel with Amen after  the day’s work to relax and enjoy themselves.

However, a few hours after they checked into the hotel, the lady rushed out and was shouting for help. But  all efforts to resuscitate Mosiki proved abortive.

Amen was later arrested and handed over to the police at Ekiadolor Police Station, Benin City. She was  detained for three days after which she was released.

According to sources, Mosiko’s wife and children left Lagos for Benin City to spend their vacation with him  and on the night of the incident, his wife made several calls to his phone without any response. But the  following morning, the police used her husband’s phone to call and invite her to the hospital where Mosiko  was taken to.

A source said: “When Mrs. Mosiko’s phone rang in the morning, she felt something was amiss since she could  not sleep throughout the night while awaiting the arrival of her husband at home. She became more worried  when the caller, a policeman invited her to a hospital.

“Initially, she thought it was an accident. But she was shocked when she searched her dead husband’s body and  saw no wound. She was later informed that her husband died in a hotel.”

The corpse of the former manager was deposited at the mortuary.

Edo police Public Relations Officer, Anthony Airhuoyo, called the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, of  Ekiadolor police station who confirmed the death of Mosiko, saying that the case was officially reported at  the station. He denied linking his death with his girlfriend, Amen.

“His death was not linked with the woman. He was only reported to have died of Sudden and Unnatural Death  (SUD),’” the DPO said.

He said no family member of Mr. Mosiko has come forward to indicate interest in pressing charges against  Amen.

An expert, who does not want his name mentioned, who commented on the incident, said for Mosiko to have died  of sudden and unnatural death was an indication that he either died of cardiac arrest or heart attack while  having sex with the girl. The police were also silent on his girlfriend.  But the case was not reported or  transferred to the Homicide Department at  the Police Command Headquarters in Benin, of the case even after  the incident was reported at Ekiadolor police station.
