It was reported that the person was killed on the suspicion that he was a ritualist after he broke into an area in Grass Copper Hotel

According to a police report from the FESTAC Town division, the suspect broke into an area where a devotee and his girlfriend had lodged. The lovers were reportedly having sex within the bedroom when the suspect broke in.

“He was caught and handed over to some hotel guards. The guards successively handed him over to the OPC members within the area. The lodger and his girlfriend were having sex and it had been what attracted the intruder to interrupt in. He was suspected to be a ritualist,” the witness added.
