Police summon Ogun hotelier over hidden cameras in rooms

Police in Ogun have begun investigating the alleged invasion of privacy of guests at the Pavillion Hotel, Ayepe in Odogbolu area of the state.

The owner of the hotel has been summoned by the police following public outcry against the hotel after an online video showed guests lamenting the discovery of closed circuit television cameras in their rooms.

In a viral video, a guest was seen removing a camera that was planted in an air conditioner in one of the rooms.

The guest said, “This is a room in the hotel we are sleeping in in Ayepe; we just found out that there is a camera installed in every room. These are the four we removed from other rooms; this is the fifth room and we just found out that there is a camera inside.

“The cameras have recorded my brother’s and mother’s nakedness. Imagine, you are putting cameras in our rooms, infringing on people’s privacy, seeing people’s nakedness.”

Ogun police spokesperson Abimbola Oyeyemi said, “The owner of the hotel stays in Lagos and the Divisional Police Officer in Odogbolu has invited him. We are expecting him to come and state his reasons for doing so.”
