The security measure was disclosed by the Spokesman of the Rivers State police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, makes mandatory for hotel owners operating in the State to install closed-circuit cameras within their facilities.

TheNewspad had reported that over seven women were killed in hotels in the state between July and September, even as the police arrested the prime suspect, Gracious David West.

He warned that failure to adhere to the order by the Nigeria police command in the State, will attract severe punishments.

Omoni explained that such security measures like registering guests’ names after proper identification and ensuring appropriate check-in and check-out procedures were aimed at forestalling any form of insecurity.

He said the command was working vigorously to avoid a recurrence of the serial killing of women in hotel rooms in the State.

According to him, “So far, the compliance level with the directive of the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mustapha Dandaura, is encouraging.

“We are getting up to 100 per cent compliance as far as the installation of CCTV cameras and embracing other security measures are concerned.

There are serious sanctions for those who refuse to obey the directives. We expect the hotel owners and managers to obey the directives for peace and security. Hotel and guesthouse owners should not take these directives for granted.

“We are doing this so that the guests and staff of hotels will be safe. We do not want any form of security breach. We are not only trying to prevent murder cases, we are also trying to avoid other forms of security breaches”.

Omoni noted that hotels and guesthouses should not be seen as places where people commit crimes and go scot-free, adding that the Command would ensure that hotels in Rivers State remained safe.
