A Nigerian singer, Melissa is mourning and calling for justice over the death of her mum, who was killed by some of her workers in Ojodu Berger of Lagos State.
Melissa’s mum, Mrs Abimbola Olusola was the owner of Etashol Hotel and Suites, before she was murdered alongside her manager.
Mrs Abimbola, who had lived in the UK for 35 years, returned to Nigeria recently and opened the hotel for business in March 2018. Meanwhile, she had sacked two of her workers, who allegedly defrauded the hotel of millions of naira.
Tragedy struck last week Thursday when a gang consisting of some of the sacked workers and some still in the employment, planned among themselves and killed Mrs Abimbola and the manager of the hotel.
They allegedly deactivated the Closed Circuit Television cameras on the premises before they carried out their evil act. According to a relative of Mrs Abimbola, she was planning to lease out the hotel and return to London when the incidence happened.
Mrs Abimbola’s body was discovered by her 12-year-old son and one of the culprits has been arrested by the police.
