A staff of Nigerian Breweries Plc, his wife and five of their children have been found dead in their residence by neighbours in Lagos.
The man identified as Etim Edet and members of his family were discovered days after they had died in their sleep on their beds at their home in Badigo area of Ijede in Ikorodu.
It was gathered that neighbours who did not see any member of the family for some days made attempts to find out what was wrong. After knocking for a long time without any response, they left wondering what must have happened to them.
However, as they went close to their apartment, they perceived some foul smell and decided to inform the police.
It was gathered that police operatives who came to the scene broke the door to the entrance of their home only to discover their decomposing dead bodies on their beds.
Spokesperson to the State Police Command, DSP Ngozi Braide, confirmed the incident.
She explained that on May 1, being workers day, about 4pm, there was a report at Ijede Police Station that a family of seven are suspected dead in their home in Ikorodu.
“Operatives moved in and Edet was allegedly found dead with his wife and five children on their beds at his residence at Bagido area of Ijede.
“No sign of violence was seen on their bodies. The deceased were suspected to have died from generator fumes. The decomposed corpses have been removed to Ikorodu General Hospital mortuary for autopsy. The incident is under investigation at Ijede Division,” she said.
