Police Begin Probe into Alleged CCTV Recordings in Ogun Hotel Rooms
The police in Ogun State said it was investigating the alleged invasion of privacy of guests at the Pavillion Hotel, Ayepe, in the Odogbolu area of the state.
There has been public outcry against the hotel after an online video clip showed guests discovering that closed circuit television cameras were discreetly installed in the hotel rooms.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, 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.”
In the well circulated clip, a guest was seen removing a camera that was planted in an air conditioner in one of the rooms.
The guest said in the clip, “This is a room in the hotel we are sleeping 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.”
A barrage of condemnation against the action of the hotel management, followed by calls for investigation prompted the police to act.
