Pandemonium erupted in the early hours of today, May 29, in the Ijoko area of Ogun state, after a man was discovered dead in his bathroom.
According to inhabitants of the compound where the tragedy happened, they began to believe something wasn’t right when they did not see the dead merely known as Mr Nnanna for over a week. When a foul odor emanated from the couple’s room, their suspicions mounted.
The compound’s landlord said he and other occupants contacted the woman this morning and inquired about her husband’s whereabouts. The mother, who appears to be mentally ill, closed the door in their faces and stated he was alright.
The landlord said they insisted that the man might have died since the foul smell persisted and flies began to perch around the windows of their apartment.
According to the landlord, they immediately alerted the vigilante members of the community who came and forced the door of the couple’s apartment open where they found the man lying lifeless in the toilet. His wife was sleeping in the house with the corpse of her late husband.
Attempts to question the wife on what happened to her husband failed as she sounded incoherent and was looking exhausted.
