PAVILION HOTEL IN IJEBU AYEPE RECORDED MY MOTHER AND BROTHER NAKEDNESS

PAVILION HOTEL IN IJEBU AYEPE RECORDED MY MOTHER AND BROTHER NAKEDNESS

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.”

A group of men has accused the management of Pavilion Hotel and Suites, Aiyepe, Ogun State of installing secret cameras in 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 men made a video which has gone viral on social media where they challenged the hotel management for hiding cameras in rooms.

They said they discovered a camera inside the air conditioner in their rooms.

The men also alleged that the camera has recorded their naked bodies.

National admin secretary of the Nigeria Hotel Association Jijiwin Akpovwovwo told BBC Pidgin that the act could get the hotel expelled from the association.

“Installation of cameras inside guest rooms is very wrong, it is invasion of guest privacy and it is devilish. The punishment for any hotel that does such is expulsion from the association,” he said.

Mr Akpovwovwo added that hotels “can install cameras in the corridor, staircase, back of the hotel but not inside rooms.”

Chief executive officer for the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) Babatunde Irukera said Nigerians have right to privacy and that it was not right for anybody to leak their secrets.

Mr Irukera said there are cases where only the government has the right to violate the right to privacy.

He added that the FCCPC has begun investigating the matter.

  1. Personally, I think putting hidden cameras in hotel rooms can also be a security measure.

    It can record criminal activities that may have been planned by guests using the hotel room as a hideout.

    It can record what actually happened in cases of rape and other forms of abuse, if someone were to report to the police that they were raped in the hotel by a guest of the hotel!

    It can record what actually happened if someone were to be found dead in the hotel room.

    That someone would start checking if there are hidden cameras in the hotel room suggests that they were in the hotel room for other reasons, and had to make sure that their ‘criminal’ activities were not being recorded by hidden cameras!

    In advanced countries, CCTV and other types of cameras all over the place in public places have often helped police to determine who is guilty of committing what offence.

    For example, several types of hidden cameras were relied upon in determining what actually happened in “Black Lives Matter” and other types of uprisings in the USA.

    • Yes, correct but not to record people’s privacy and nakedness.
      Nana, they sell these clips online as blue films and rakes in dollars without customers knowledge.
      Imagine, you get to see your nakedness been traded online without your consent? Just imagine!

  2. @ My Name, you are clearly an idiot who cannot distinguish between privacy and security. If they are genuine then they should have the guests to sign a consent form to allow the hotel spy on them while sleeping naked or counting money!

    This is a clear breach of privacy. The owner belongs to Kirikiri right now.
