Two good neighbours and couples died under mysterious circumstances in Lagos a fortnight ago. One, a white-garment-church pastor and his wife and the other, a security guard with a private security firm and his pregnant wife.
The couples who were good neighbours lived at Ofin in Igbogbo-Bayeku Local Council Development Area, Ikorodu, and their relationship was yummy to the point that when the wife of the security guard simply identified as Femi, who was pregnant had discomfort on Saturday night, June 28, after a dinner, he quickly rushed to Superior Evangelist Isaiah Adebola and his wife Deborah’s house, which is located within their church (pictured) to invite them to his house for ‘deliverance’.
The couple followed Femi who was also Superior Evangelist Adebola’s cousin home but that was their last journey on foot, and even in life.
The couple’s mysterious disappearance troubled members of Ofin Community, particularly their church members and the Community Development Association, (CDA).
And an extensive search party was set up in search of the couple the following day. A large search within the community and outside was launched but no sign of the couple for days.
However, a foul stench and flies swarming around Femi’s house gave them a cue.
Sources said the building was locked from within, thereby preventing people from gaining access into the house. After failed efforts to gain entry into the house, the local security organisation in Ikorodu which was invited by the CDA, climbed the roof of the building through a pidgeon hole.
To their greatest disbelief, they found the remains of the cleric and his wife as well as that of Femi and his wife. Two of the corpses were allegedly lying in the pool of their own blood while foam was oozing out from Femi’s mouth.
His deceased wife was said be having a mould of food on her hand. This discovery led to the invitation of the men of the Nigeria Police.
It was gathered that it took a while before the corpses were removed from the scene of the crime and taken to the morgue for autopsy.
