Contrary to initial reports circulating on social media, which suggested that Mr Johnson was found murdered within the hotel premises, confirmed reports indicate that he was discovered deceased in his private residence adjacent to the hotel.

Insiders privy to the details of the incident have disclosed that Mr. Johnson, affectionately known as “Jirapa Dubai,” was found lifeless in his residence shortly before 1:30 am. The timing of the discovery aligns with reports indicating that his stolen vehicle was observed leaving his residence around the same time, implicating the murder in the early hours of the morning.

The modus operandi of the assailant(s) has also been brought to light, with reports suggesting that they gained unauthorized access to Mr. Johnson’s residence by scaling the perimeter wall using a ladder. Once inside, they utilized a mastercard to gain entry to his room, where the fatal attack took place.

Sources close to the investigation have revealed disturbing details about the condition in which Mr. Johnson’s body was found. Despite having completed his bath before the attack, he was discovered lying on the floor in nothing but a towel, with evidence of deep wounds believed to have been inflicted by his assailant(s).

The subsequent theft of Mr. Johnson’s car key and the subsequent getaway in his personal vehicle further underscore the gravity of the situation. However, the abandoned vehicle was later recovered by authorities, providing a potential lead in the ongoing investigation.

In a concerning turn of events, it has been revealed that the security personnel at Mr. Johnson’s residence inadvertently facilitated the assailant(s)’ exit from the premises. Mistaking the perpetrator(s) for Mr. Johnson, the security personnel reportedly allowed them to leave unchallenged, adding a layer of complexity to the unfolding narrative.

Amidst these developments, law enforcement agencies have taken swift action, detaining an individual suspected of involvement in the crime to assist with the investigation. Additionally, the body of the deceased has been transferred to the morgue at the Upper West Regional Hospital, where further forensic examination is expected to shed more light on the circumstances surrounding Mr. Johnson’s tragic demise.
