Some other people were also found unconscious in the same hotel after inhaling smoke from a generating set.
Dailypost gathered that the generator was left inside the hotel overnight by the manager of the facility.
The hotel manager was also amongst those who were found dead in the morning.
A member of the local vigilante group in the area Isa Muhammad said “other victims have been rushed to the hospital”.
While the Rivers State Police Public Relations officer was yet to issue an official statement on the development, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the Egbeada Police division has invited the owner of the hotel for questioning.
