By Nosa Akenzua
Alleged randy businessman, identified as Okpako David, was, on Wednesday night, found dead in a hotel room around Odibo Extension in the Igbudu area of Warri, Delta state where he was said to have lodged with his wife’s sales girl.
It was gathered that the victim became unconscious hours after he was said to have checked into the hotel with the girl.
The deceased’s wife, who owned a shop at the popular Igbudu Market in Warri, had told some close friends and family members that her husband died from reckless sexual intercourse, wondering “How could my husband have brought himself so low for my sales girl? It’s the law of nemesis that caught up with him.”
It was further learnt that, on Wednesday, that efforts by management of the hotel to revive the deceased were unsuccessful as he was already found dead with fumes coming out of his mouth, a situation that attracted many people, including the management of the hotel, to the room where the victim was found dead on the floor.
But another source said he was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital in the area where medical personnel confirmed him dead on arrival.
Okpako, who was identified as the chairman of Mile 2, Igbudu Market and a big-time business man, was alleged to have consumed some sex-enhancement substances.
It was further alleged that the deceased had been dating the girl for some time before the unfortunate incident.
It was also gathered that the girlfriend was detained by the hotel management and, later, handed over to police operatives from ‘B’ Division in Warri.
When contacted, the Delta state police public relations officer, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.
Edafe also confirmed the arrest of the girl, adding that investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the man’s death had been launched by the command, including the conduct of autopsy for the deceased.
