A man alongside his wife and three children have died in their apartment in Apapa, Lagos.
The businessman has been identified as Lawrence Olorungbon.
The state Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, has begun an investigation as to unravel the circumstances surrounding the tragic incident and the cause of death of the victims, according to LIB.
The deceased and his family were found dead after his secretary who couldn’t reach him on the phone, visited his home to ascertain why he was incommunicado. She knocked severally on the door but there was no response.
The secretary said an offensive odour pervaded the air and that there were flies buzzing around.
She immediately alerted policemen at the Apapa division who visited the scene and forced the entrance door open, to behold the bodies in their decomposing state.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said an autopsy is being conducted to ascertain the cause of death.
