According to the Anambra State Police Command, preliminary findings indicate that Chinyere Awuda, the Anambra lady who passed away last weekend in the club at the Cosmila Hotel in Anambra State drowned in the swimming pool where her body was discovered on July 17.
Recall the news of how the Anambra Lady was allegedly beaten to death by some hotel revelers after they accused her of stealing cash that had been used to celebrate someone else’s birthday anniversary.
Meanwhile, the pathologist who conducted an autopsy on the deceased made it known through a statement issued by the state police command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, that no trauma signs were discovered on her to conclude that she was beaten to death as it was previously claimed.
She further affirmed that Ms Awuda according to the postmortem results drowned.
‘’On 17th July 2023, the body of a young lady later identified as Miss Chinyere Awuda was found in an abandoned swimming pool within the premises of Cosmila Hotel located at No.10 Cosmila Close, off old INEC road by Regina Caeli Junction, Awka.
It was alleged that the deceased was beaten to death by some persons who had an event at the hotel the previous night. She was accused of pilfering some of the Naira Notes allegedly sprayed on the celebrant.
In the course of the Police investigation, the celebrant was arrested for questioning while the corpse was recovered and deposited at the morgue for autopsy.
Contrary to claims that the deceased was beaten to death, the pathologist found no sign of trauma on the body.
The autopsy report indicated that Drowning was the cause of death.
This finding was in tandem with claims that the lady ran away when accosted and every effort made to find her that night was futile.
It would appear that she fell into the abandoned swimming pool and drowned.
Commissioner of Police, Anambra State Command, *CP Aderemi Adeoye* has directed that the case file be forwarded to the Attorney General for vetting and legal advice.
Any further development will be communicated to the public in due course, please.”
