A section of Wintess Garden Annexe, Ifite Awka, Anambra State has been sealed over a viral swimming pool sex video that was linked to the facility.

Anambra State Commissioner for Culture, Entertainment and Tourism, Donatus Onyenji, who signed the order dated September 8, said the action was to enable the government and security agencies to conduct investigations into the matter.

Mr Onyenji also said that the action was in line with the provisions of the Anambra State Tourism and Hospitality Law 2016.

He further said that the government’s action was in spite of the ministry already having before it, an application for Operational Permit by the hotel, dated August 31.

“However, while the process is ongoing, our attention has been drawn to the social media video of live sex and pornographic content (sex party) conducted on September 3 at an open place in your hotel/facility.

“This and other such indecent operations and unholy acts of public show of indecency must not be allowed in any hotel in Anambra.

“The Government of Anambra hereby directs the management of the hotel to shut down operations, pending further investigations and review of its application,” Mr Onyenji said.

Reacting to the development, Ndibe Ikeh, the General Manager of Witness Group, owners of the hotel, expressed regrets over the incident.

Mr Ikeh said that the incident did not represent the company’s values and operational principles.

He thanked the government for wading into the scandal by taking decisive steps to investigate and unravel the perpetrators and their motives.

Mr Ikeh, who did not rule out blackmail by their detractors, called on the State Security Services and the police to conduct a thorough investigation with the aim of establishing the role of the hotel in the incident.

“Wintess Garden Hotel is a responsible organisation with good moral values, our services are open to the public.

“As a management, we condemn the act and call for thorough investigation into the matter.

“We apologise for this embarrassment and thank the state government for its kind intervention,” he said.

He requested that the investigation be carried out to a logical conclusion.
