The hotel was set on fire on Tuesday night, October 21, 2020, after Nigerian Soldiers opened fire on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate, killing about nine people and injuring so many others.
KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) situated close to the hotel was also affected by the fire outbreak.
Below are some of the video captured at the scene:
