The Lagos State Police Command has launched an investigation into the tragic death of Onyejekwe Izuchukwu, a 62-year-old businessman based in Texas, USA, who was found deceased in a hotel room in Ikoyi.

Izuchukwu, who returned to Nigeria for business engagements, tragically met his demise on June 9, 2024, under mysterious circumstances while lodging at a hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos State.

According to sources close to the investigation who spoke anonymously, Izuchukwu had checked into the hotel on June 6, 2024. His lifeless body was discovered by a cleaner on June 9 around 7 pm. The hotel management promptly alerted the Assistant Chief Security Officer, who then reported the incident to the police.

"The cleaner found Mr. Izuchukwu lying motionless on the floor of his room while attempting to clean," the source revealed. "Despite immediate efforts, including calling a doctor to confirm his condition, he was pronounced dead at the scene."

Until his untimely death, Izuchukwu was known for his pivotal role as President of Bits and Drilling Tools, a division of Schlumberger, where he spearheaded the development of cutting-edge drilling technologies aimed at enhancing efficiency in the oil and gas sector.

Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, stated that Izuchukwu's remains have been transferred to a morgue in Ikeja for autopsy.

"The command has commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death," Hundeyin assured.

As investigations continue, friends, family, and associates of Izuchukwu mourn his sudden passing, while awaiting further details from the ongoing police inquiry.

The exact cause of Izuchukwu's death remains undisclosed pending the outcome of the autopsy, leaving many questions unanswered in the wake of this tragic event.
