Lagos Couple Found Dead In Their Room
Decomposing Bodies of a couple have been found in their apartment on Sadius Crescent, Araromi-Ile, in the Morogbo area of Lagos State, according to the state Police Command.
Nobody could say precisely the cause of the death of the couple, husband and wife who were in their 60s and 50s.
The co-tenants who were supposed to give a quality explanation about the circumstances of their death had fled the house due to the odour in the place.
A source said the landlord of the residence was allegedly mentally challenged while no relation of the couple had yet to come forward.
The police had since removed the bodies and deposited them at the Badagry General Hospital morgue.
An investigation revealed that the couple had been living in the rented apartment for about five years without no child and that they hardly received visitors.
“We do not know their relatives. They died few days before the tenants discovered that they were inside their room,” a source said.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, who confirmed the incidents, said detectives visited and photographed the scenes.
