No student died at a Lagos hotel. The real story behind the photo that went viral

Last week the pic above went viral with many blogs claiming that another student was found dead in a hotel in Lagos. The report claimed that the victim is a girl named Florence Ngwu, a 300L student of University of Nigeria. Erm, no such thing happened in real life. This is a photo from a movie called Murder at Prime Suite Hotel, a fiction but similar to the Cynthia Osogwu murder story.

The character's name is Florence Ngwu played by an actress. The movie stars Joseph Benjamin and Chelsea Eze. The producers of the movie have released a statement. See it after the cut...



Murder At Prime Suite (MAPS): A movie not another social crime

Over the last weekend, news broke out on the Internet about a certain girl, Florence Ngwu, murdered at prime suite, Lagos. We have tried to put a stop to the rumour but it keeps going viral.

I am Jumafor Ajogwu and I am the producer of the movie called, “Murder at Prime Suite” (MAPS). The movie featured stars like Joseph Benjamin, Keira Hewatch, Chelsea Eze, Okey Uzoeshi and a host of other talented upcoming acts. I want to categorically state to the general public that this is a movie; it is not a real life incident. This  movie would premiere nationwide on the 30th of August, 2013 at Genesis Deluxe Cinemas, Lekki Lagos. We cannot trace how the rumour leaked as we had several journalists on our set during principal photography but we want to put a stop to this rumour and make every Nigerian and the rest of the world know that it is a movie and not another incident like the rumour claimed.


The movie is a total fiction and a C&C Screen production’s vision to promote the value for Nigerian lives. Florence Ngwu is a character in our movie and every other character or things in the movie do not represent any true identity of living or dead.

Well, the news was actually carried first by @fake9janews on twitter. They just give fake news. That's what they do. Then some bloggers who just like to copy and paste just took it and thought it was real. That's y its always good to confirm from a reliable source before accepting and posting news.

Nigerian media always misinform the public, the worst part of it is that once a blog puts it out, every other blog copies and paste, nobody cares to verify at all.

Anonymous said...

The producer of this film had a hand in the so called fake story that circulated last week or so. They planned this publicity stunt to hype the movie upon the premier, for a good sale. Correcting the public assumption about the earlier version of the story now, is believed to launch his work into limelight & make people seek to see & complete the story of the pictured lady's lifeless body that went around with the fake version of the story last week or there about. Cheap pathetic marketing stunt!
