In the Apapa neighbourhood of Lagos, the bodies of a businessman named Lawrence Olorungbon, his wife, and three children were discovered in their flat.
The state’s Criminal Investigation Department in Yaba has launched an investigation to determine the cause of death and the circumstances surrounding the terrible tragedy.
The deceased and his family were discovered dead after his secretary, unable to reach him by phone, visited his residence to determine why he was unreachable. She repeatedly knocked on the door, but no one answered. The secretary said that an awful odour permeated the air and that flies were swarming about. She quickly notified officers from the Apapa division, who rushed to the location and broke open the front door to view the decomposing remains.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesman for the state police command, confirmed the occurrence to LIB and stated that an autopsy is being done to determine the cause of death.
