7-Up Manager Who Had Gone To A Hotel With Junior Colleague To Have Fun, Slumped & Died In Hotel Room In Benin City
According PMNews' investigation, Mosiko, 53, had gone to the hotel with a lady called Amen, a security guard at the company, to have fun when the tragedy occurred.
An indigene of Ayetoro-Gbede in Kogi State, Mosiko called at the hotel with Amen after the day's work to unwind.
Few hours after they checked into the hotel, the lady rushed out and was shouting for help. Mosiko had slumped and was grasping for breath, all efforts to resuscitate Mosiki proved abortive.
Amen was later arrested and handed over to the police at Ekiadolor Police Station, Benin City. She was detained for three days after which she was released.
According to PMNews' sources, Mosiko's wife and children left Lagos for Benin City to spend their vacation with him and on the night of the incident, his wife made several calls to his phone without any response. But the following morning, police used her husband's phone to call and invite her to the hospital where Mosiko's body was deposited.
"Initially, she thought it was an accident. But she was shocked when she looked through her dead husband's body and saw no wound. She was later informed that her husband died in a hotel".
A staff of 7-UP who spoke to PMNews on condition of anonymity, confirmed the incident.
Edo police Public Relations Officer, Anthony Airhuoyo, called the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, of Ekiadolor police station who confirmed the death of Mosiko, saying that the incident was officially reported at the station. He denied linking his death with his girlfriend, Amen.
"His death was not linked with the woman. He was only reported to have died of Sudden and Unnatural Death (SUD)", the DPO said. He said no family member of Mr. Mosiko has come forward to indicate interest in pressing charges against Amen.
An expert, who does not want his name mentioned, who commented on the incident, said for Mosiko to have died of sudden and unnatural death was an indication that he either died of cardiac arrest or heart attack while having sex with the girl.
