Man, wife and son found dead in their Ikorodu apartment

The people of Aga community in the Ikorodu area of Lagos state were thrown into shock on Friday morning, after a man, his wife and son were found dead in their apartment.

According to a neighbour of the deceased identified as Taiwo Salami, a Charles Omomo, popularly referred to as Baba Efe, his wife, Faith and their three children were all inside the apartment when the incident occurred.

According to the neighbour, while it was discovered that Omomo committed suicide the cause of death of the wife and son is yet to be known.

“I left home very early as usual with my motorcycle. After some hours, my wife called me that Baba Efe, his wife and their last child, Glorious were found dead inside their apartment,” Salami said.

“On getting home I saw a crowd in our compound. I entered the apartment of Baba Efe only to discover he had committed suicide, the wife lay on the floor dead and the son on the three-seater chair also dead.

“I was surprised because yesterday night, I saw both the wife and the husband sitting together as usual without any rancour. In fact, they were playing with their children around them. I don’t know what could have caused this sudden situation.

“Efe, the eldest daughter went to one of their family members, living nearby to report the development. On getting there, she screamed for help.

“The dead man used to be a motorcycle rider but a few months ago he stopped working because his motorcycle had developed a fault.

“The children also stopped going to school but I saw them yesterday and there was no sign of any problem among them.”

Another neighbour who spoke on anonymity said: “There was a time the husband and wife were fighting and the husband was accusing his wife of infidelity– that the wife must tell him the real father of the son– if not that nobody will be alive among them,” the neighbour was quoted to have said.

“As you can see, the children and their parents were together at the time of the incident and nothing happened to the two older girls.

“The mother and son whose matter is in contention were found dead and the father was also found to have committed suicide.”

Officers of the rapid response squad from Ikeja and the Ikorodu police division evacuated the corpses from the apartment, NAN reports.
