A viral video some weeks ago revealed a moment when a guest at a hotel in Ayepe , Odogbolu area of Ogun State became angry after allegedly detecting a hidden camera in one of the hotel rooms .
The guest was heard complaining bitterly that his privacy had been exposed but a man who appears to be the hotel manager called his bluff after attempts to offer explanation were ignored.
The guest said , “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. ”
The video generated criticism on social media and later caught the attention of the Ogun State Police Command which said it had commenced investigation into the alleged invasion of guests ’ privacy at the hotel.
The state Police Public Relations Officer , Abimbola Oyeyemi , said the owner of the hotel had been invited by the Divisional Police Officer in Odogbolu.
“ We are expecting him to come and state his reasons for doing so , ” he added .
Whatever the outcome of the investigation is, the memory of the ‘ strange’ discovery at a place where he ought to have had a pleasant rest would remain with the enraged guest.
In March 2019 , CNN reported that about 1 , 600 people have been secretly filmed in motel rooms in South Korea , with the footage live – streamed online for paying customers to watch .
Two men were arrested and another pair investigated in connection with the scandal , which involved 42 rooms in 30 accommodations in 10 cities around the country. Police said there was no indication that businesses were complicit in the scheme .
