Singer Mr. 2Kay has reportedly sued the Eko Hotel & Suites for N500 million after he was robbed in his hotel room.
He was robbed at gunpoint on the 22nd of October, after he had arrived the hotel to perform at the Buckwyld ‘N’ Breathless concert.
The robbers, 4 in number, gained access into Mr. 2Kay’s room after he mistook one of them for room service. They forced their way into his room and waved a gun with threats to shoot him if he made a noise.
Mr. 2Kay, who was in the room with a friend, struggled with one of the robbers, as the others punched and hit him with a gun, repeatedly warning that they will shoot if he doesn’t calm down.
One of the robbers led and locked 2Kay’s friend in the bathroom, while the others tied the singer’s arms, legs and mouth and took his valuables including jewelry, clothes, perfumes, phones, and money. They also cut the room’s intercom (phone) to avoid any form of communication as they left the hotel.
According to reports, the singer is seeking compensation for his lost items, hospital bill and other damages.
The Hotel’s management has already been served the papers, and are said to be working with the Bar Beach Police Station to apprehend the culprits.
