Several gunmen who were outraged with a hotel owner after the man allegedly snatched the girlfriend of their boss, have meted out the worst form of punishment to him.
Michael Olutoye Ogunlusi, the owner of Alloizie Hotel on Ishawo Road, Owutu area of Ikorodu in Lagos State was killed by the gunmen.
The gunmen, who stormed the hotel on Friday at about11pm, after tying the guards on duty, shot Ogunlusi to death. They were said to be four in number, spotting black jeans, T-shirts and with face caps.

After ordering all guests at the reception area into one of the rooms, one of the gunmen proceeded to the room where the owner of the hotel was and pumped bullets into him, accusing him of usurping the girlfriend of their boss.
The acting Police Public Relations Officer for Lagos State, Chukwuma Ozoani, confirmed the development,
Ozoani said four persons had been arrested in connection with the killing.
