Generator fume kills two siblings in Lagos
21 year old Michael, and 19 year old Paul, were found lying dead on Tuesday morning, May 21st, 2019 at their shop at Ojota in Lagos state.
According to multiple reports, they died as a result of inhaling generator fumes while passing the night at their shop.
Michael and Paul are both siblings, and they are known to sleep in their shop in Ojota.
According to details made available, they are usually among the first to open their shop everyday.
On Tuesday, neighbors were expecting the duo to open their shop in their usual way, but there was a delay.
A concerned neighbor who was worried something might have happened, dialed their numbers, only to hear the phones ring inside the ‘closed shop’.
At this point, the neighbour got worried and raised alarm, causing people to gather and forcefully break into the shop.
The brothers were seen lying lifeless with a white substance around their mouth and head.
At first, suicide was suspected but preliminary police investigations determined that they were choked with the carbon monoxide from a running generating set inside the shop, Guardian Nigeria reports.
The neighbour who discovered them dismissed reports of carbon monoxide poisoning and pointed out that he suspected foul play.
He told the publication: “This is not the first time they are using this generator though it is quite new. The generator supplies light to the whole house and we usually put it on when there is no power, which is almost every day. More investigations should be carried out because we are suspecting there is more to this than meets the eye. How can two whole human beings just go like that in one day? We need more light on this.”
