A popular Instagram cloth vendor identified as Adeshina Olayinka, popularly known as Khadi, was found dead at a hotel in the Akobo area of Ibadan, Oyo State.
Olayinka was known for her designer clothes and bag business on social media.
According to Oyo Affairs, she informed her friend of a meeting with an individual at Wetland Hotel in Akobo on the night of Wednesday, April 5.
The man she was with, however, checked out early on Thursday morning which was followed by a phone call to Khadi’s room and she confirmed her safety to the receptionist.
Unfortunately, Khadi was found dead hours later when the receptionist reached out to inform her she was already overstaying.
The hotel management, in reaction, noted that they were fully in cooperation with the Nigeria Police in their investigation to ensure that the truth about the cause of the deceased’s death was upheld.
