Guest Die Of Suspected Poison In Wetland Premise Ughelli


An unidentified male guest has died from alleged poison at a popular hotel premises located along the Ughelli axis of the East/West road on Sunday, in Ughelli North local government area of Delta State.

Though the report was sketchy as at the time of this report but it was gathered the male guest was seen vomiting blood at the hotel premises died in one the toilets.

In its reaction, the management of Wetland Hotel Ughelli denied the allegations.


They held that the guest died of tuberculosis and it was not in their hotel but at the wedding reception at the premises.

It was gathered that the deceased who had gone to a party at Wetland hotel premises died in one of the toilets at about 2pm and his corpse was evacuated at about 8pm same day.


When contacted, the General Manager of Wetland Hotel, who identified himself as Samuel said, “The story is not true and what happened is that the hotel is operated by a different management entirely.

“What happened is what has happened before, the person came for a wedding ceremony, sometimes when I hear people open their mouth to talk rubbish, it irritates me and I believed that Nigerians would grow past the stage of talking because they want to talk.


“The family confirmed that the guy has Tuberculosis and that death was as the result of his health issues and his family confirmed it, they came to the premises, the police were involved and the family said they don’t police.


The police took pictures and after their investigations and the family came to collect the remains of their brother, so when people came to say what they don’t know, it irritates me.


Where the incident took place, does not have any business with the hotel, the did not have any business with the hotel because it is being manage by different people entirely.


“This hotel is different from that business because it does not benefit from the hall.


You know when people say the guy was poised, it makes me laugh like I rightly said, the family confirmed that the guy has tuberculosis and in the process of the wedding, he was coughing and coughing and coughing and before they could get a vehicle.


“Not in the hotel. Many Ughelli people were there and they can confirm that it was not in the hotel but in the party and the story people are giving is all rubbish.


Revealing further, Wetland Hotel General Manager, Ughelli, Samuel said, “The police came because we invited them to come and did their investigations, the guy was vomiting blood very closed to the DJ man inside the hall.


“So all the saying that the guy died in the toilet is all rubbish and nonsense talks. The bag he was carrying there was blood inside and that means he is aware of his blood”.

When contacted the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Edafe Bright said, “The report did not come to the police after findings, we were not able to confirm it”.
