Nigerian Army officers allegedly a§§aults hotel manager to d+ath, leaves three other hotel staff b+dly inj¥red

Some personnel of the Nigerian Army have allegedly k+lled one of the section managers of Hotel Royal Damgrete, Umuahia, Abia State where a Nigerian Air Force cadet reportedly dr+wn£d in the swimming pool.

The manager identified as Mr Achimugu James Etubi from Kogi State was the head of the food and beverage department of the hotel located on Factory Road.

He was reportedly tort¥red to d+ath by the soldiers on Friday morning at the military barracks.

According to Sahara Reporters, the Abia State Police Command confirmed the d+ath of the NAF cadet officer on Friday, April 12, 2024.

The NAF Tarmac Four cadet, simply identified as CDT Chidiebere, had reportedly d+ed on Tuesday in the swimming pool.

According to a source, who didn’t want his name mentioned, the situation that led to Etubi’s demise started a few days ago when a cadet officer from the Nigerian Air Force Tarmac Four came into the Hotel Royal Damgrete Umuahia to swim and have fun with his friends and dr+wn£d while swimming.

“The Nigerian Air Force Tarmac Four cadet was identified as Cadet Chidiebere. The d+ath of the cadet officer drew the attention of the state police and it made them begin investigation.

In the process of investigating the d+ath of the cadet officer, four persons were taken by the Nigeria Police Force for investigations, Mr. James Etubi inclusive. They were detained for a night and were released on bail. But a few days later, the military officers led by one Maj. Inuwa particularly, was said to have invited four persons including Mr James Etubi for further investigations, and thr£at£ned the owner of the hotel Mr. Steve Ihendigbo, to release the workers to the army or have his hotel dam+ged.

The owner of the hotel now went against the police’s instructions to release them to the military just to save his hotel from att+ck,” the source revealed.

The source also noted that “When Mr. Steve was contacted after the k+lling of the manager he was scared to give full details for fEar of the Nigerian military.

The family, wife, and kids of the deceased are calling on Nigerians and relevant agencies to join voice and forces for justice in this inhuman treatment that led to the loss of life of Mr. Etubi.”

Meanwhile, when SaharaReporters contacted the hotel owner, Mr Steve for clarification he decried the k+lling of his staff, adding that soldiers had continued thrEatEning to k+ll everybody in the hotel.”(ab)

According to him, after the dEath of the said cadet officer, his staff called to inform him what was going on. “The Cadet officer came with two others. Two were cadet officers and a navy trainer. They came and parked their vehicle. We don’t know what happened because the deceased Cadet officer didn’t swim in
the swimming pool. The next thing the other cadet officer started shouting that their college had dr+wned. We invited the police and fire service to pump out the water in the swimming pool but they didn’t do anything.
