Hustle & Bustle, the nightclub owned by Obi Cubana, the Nigerian businessman, has opened up on events that led to the recent death of a female clubber at the facility.
TheCable Lifestyle had reported how the management of the club shut the facility indefinitely over the death of the fun seeker.
Shortly after the incident, rumours swirled on social media platforms that the client died of electrocution.
But in a statement via its Instagram page, the club said the fun seeker “tripped and fell” on her way out of the facility which resulted in her eventual death.
The club added that its silence on the incident was to allow it mourn with the deceased’s family and give the police enough time to conduct its investigation.
It described the incident as “a blow that hit us harder than we could have imagined” due to the manner in which the clubber died.
“Despite the myriad of question and assumptions out in the public, we had earnestly refrained from making any statement until this moment for two reasons; mainly because we had to join the family and friends to mourn a beautiful life that was taken too soon, and to enable the police to extensively conduct and carry out their investigations,” it read.
“It therefore behooves on us at this moment to inform the generally public of these series of facts;
“On the 14th of November 2021, a dear customer whilst leaving our premises, tripped and fell and this led to her painful and untimely death.
“Owing to this tragedy, our management reached a decision to shut down our business so as to adequately mourn the deceased, and also allow the police unfettered access to conduct their investigations.
“On that fateful morning, the deceased after leaving the club, was happily playing around with her friends, when she made a slight run, tripped and fell down a few meters to the car park and became unconscious. Sadly, she passed on, on their way to the hospital.”
The club said the police have already carried out its investigation, adding that it is currently awaiting the outcome of the findings.
“The Nigerian Police Force have extensively carried out their investigations and thoroughly reviewed our wide and lengthy CCTV footages and we await the report of this investigation,” the statement added.
“We assure the public that we have employed several health and safety standards and we will continue to place safety over profit. We have also used this bitter lesson to upgrade our already decent safety procedures and we would do our utmost best to continue to serve as a leader in this sector.”
