A hotel, Wintess Garden Hotel situated in Awka, Anambra State, has been shut down following a viral s3x video at the hotel’s swimming pool last week.
This is coming barely a week after a viral video captured some youths, alleged to be students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, engaging in amorous activities in the pool while being filmed.
The state government in a statement signed by the state commissioner for culture, entertainment and tourism, Donatus Onyenji acted swiftly by ordering the closure of the hotel.
Donatus said the action was to pave way for investigations and review of the matter.
He added that the order was by the provisions of the Anambra State Tourism and Hospitality Law 2016.
He said, “This and other such indecent operational standard and unholy acts of public show of indecency must not be allowed in any hotel in Anambra.
“Government of Anambra State hereby directs the management of Wintess Garden Hotel to shut down operations pending further investigations and review of the application.”
The hotel manager, Ndibe Ikeh, in reaction, said, “Wintess Garden Hotel is a responsible organisation with good moral values. Our services are open to the public.
“We apologise for this embarrassment and thank the state government for its kind intervention.”
The authorities of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, in a reaction to the development denied that the students involved in the act were from the university.
Unizik’s spokesman, Mrs Chika Ene, said, “The individuals in the video are not students of our noble institution.
“The management of the university frowns at such immoral acts and thus reiterates the core values of self-discipline and good morals which university is instilling in its students.”
