Dandaura’s threat was coming on the heels of the gruesome murder of two young women in hotel rooms in the state.

The CP while speaking at the State Police Command on Tuesday said two suspects had been arrested in connection with the murder blaming the wave of such killing on the failure of most hotels in the state to install CCTV.

He gave 30-day ultimatum to hotels operating without CCTV camera to install it, failure the police would lock up their premises.

His word: “Regrettably, it has come to my notice that some hotels have yet to comply with my directive on CCTV camera, hence my order to arrest the managers, receptionists and desk officers in two hotels, where two separate murders were recorded.

“They will be investigated and if found culpable, charged with culpable homicide. Today, I want to reinforce our commitment to tackling the menace and assure you that we have come to the end of this monstrous act by desperate cultists and ritualists.”
