The Anambra government has suspended operations in a section of a hotel in Awka, Anambra State, where a sex party was allegedly held last weekend.
Viral videos circulated on the internet of a party held in Wintess Garden Annexe, Ifite Awka, saw participants having sex among themselves.
Mr Donatus Onyenji, Commissioner for Culture, Entertainment and Tourism who signed a seal order said the action was to enable government and security agencies conduct further investigation on the matter.
Onyenji said the closure was in line with the Anambra State Tourism and
Hospitality Law of 2016.
Part of the letter to the hotel read: “Our attention has been drawn to the social media video of live sex and pornographic content (sex party) conducted on 3rd September at an open place in your hotel/facility.
“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 hereby directs the management of Wintess Garden Hotel to shut-down operations pending further investigations and review of the application.”
The sex video which was widely circulated had been attributed to students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, because of the proximity of the hotel to the campus.
Meanwhile, the institution had denied the involvement of its students in the act, insisting that school had not been in session, and that their students were not on campus.
