The spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command, SP Omolola Odutola, on Tuesday, confirmed that the 31-year-old died in a hotel room.

Odutola said Jaja was reported to have been found lying unconscious and foaming in the mouth with an empty bottle of an insecticide beside her.

She disclosed that the incident was reported to the Divisional Police Officer, Ago Iwoye Division, on January 27.

“The Director of Be-Happy Hotel in Ago Iwoye, Hon. Oduniyi Adelaja, came to the police station and reported that at about 6am on the same day, he received information from one Adebayo Israel, a staff member of the hotel, that Adaeze Doris Jaja, a 31-year-old female and a 400-level student at Olabisi Onabanjo University in Ago Iwoye, was found lying unconscious and foaming in the mouth on a freezer,” she said.
