“My friend called me to tell me that his sister died at Hustle and Bustle early this morning. I quickly drove to the premises and I met my friend, friends of the deceased and employees of the Hustle and Bustle at the venue.
“My friend and his people have been at Hustle and Bustle since morning demanding CCTV footage so at least we can know the events that led to her demise. The most astonishing aspect of all this is the fact that the employees keep saying that the manager is the only one with access to the footage and the manager is sleeping.
“My friend’s sister died on the premises and the manager is sleeping; we are still here waiting for him to wake up from his beauty sleep.”
He later disclosed that the family of the deceased had been given access to the said CCTV footage and that the incident has been reported to the police.
Following this, the management of the club has shut it down till further notice and expressed sadness and empathy over Susan's demise.
On her part, the FCT police spokesperson, DSP Josephine Adeh, has admitted that the command is aware of the development and that investigation into it is ongoing.
Adeh added that the police have also ordered an autopsy report on Susan's remains.
“The case was reported to the police. This is a case of sudden and unnatural death, which investigation is going on. We are going to carry out an autopsy to determine the cause of death. I cannot tell you the cause of the death now until the investigation and autopsy are completed.”
