How lady was beaten to death in Anambra hotel

-          corpse dumped in abandoned hotel’s swimming pool

-          Her fiancé still in a state of shock


 A young lady identified as Miss Chinyere Awuda has been beaten to death at the Cosmila Hotels and Suites, Awka, Anambra State.


The incident happened on Sunday night July 16 2023 at the hotel’s Night Club section where some alleged Yahoo Plus Boys were spraying the birthday celebrant, their friend, wads of money.


It was gathered from sources at the scene of the incident that trouble began when a friend of the celebrant accused and started beating  Chinyere for picking up some money that was being sprayed on the birthday celebrant.



“Some others said she did not only pick money, but went for bundles of money, which another friend of the celebrant stacked by his seat side. Waiting to spray on the birthday celebrant,’’ a source said.


Some sources said that she was mistaken for the wrong person, that even as much as she (Chinyere) tried to establish her innocence that the celebrant and his friends pounced on her. Despite efforts made by other people in the club to rescue her from the hands of the celebrant and his friends, they continued pummeling her even as the Hotel manager watched.


The hotel manager allegedly asked the club’s security guards and bouncers to stand down and instead turnoff light the lights while the Chinyere was assaulted.


Other fun seekers at the scene said she was beaten to death, her lifeless body dragged outside the Night Club and dumped into an abandoned swimming pool within the hotel premises.


How Chinyere’s journey into untimely death began

Chinyere lived at Elite Hostel, at the UNIZIK Tempsite behind God is Good Motors with her Abia State fiancé. Some of her co-tenants was said to have seen her that that Sunday. That after Church service in the morning, she went to market to get some food items. Her charming disposition never indicated that it would be her last day on earth.


Around 8pm that Sunday 16. July 2023, she left for the birthday party at the Cosmila Hotel and Suites with a co-tenant.


By 3am on Monday, Chinyere’s co-tenant was said to have returned alone to their lodge without Chinyere. Chinyere’s fiancé enquired of Chinyere from her, but the co-tenant couldn’t give concrete answer. But later said she only saw Chinyere been slapped and that was the only thing she knew about her.


Chinyere fiancé and some her relatives stormed the hotel demanding for Chinyere’s whereabout but was told by the hotel management that they should come back in the evening. On getting back to the hotel in the evening, they demanded for the CCTV footage but were denied access to it only to find her bloated corpse in the abandoned swimming pool of the hotel.


According to a source the celebrant has on his Facebook page allegedly wrote’ ‘’The birthday was successful, some are happy, some are crying.’’ 


When contacted, the Anambra State Police spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the incident and said the birthday celebrator and his friends were already in police custody while the case is being investigated.


Ikenga said, “Hotel Manager, the man manning CCTV and other suspects, are in our custody in connection with the incident, the hotel management assisted the police in arresting the suspects and investigation is still ongoing. Further details shall be communicated please.”


The Anambra State has shut down the hotel even as investigation continues.
