It was a black Tuesday, August 17, 2021at Elegbaata village, Oke Suna, Apomu, in the Isokan Local Government Area of Osun State, after seven people: a man, his wife and five children were found dead in their apartment, Punch reported.
“But even at that, we did not immediately realise those that slept in the house had died until some residents summoned courage and forced the door open.
“What we saw was scary. All of them that slept in the house, except one, had died; husband, wife, and five children all dead. But one person that also slept in the house was rescued alive and taken to a hospital. Some people that arrived at the scene first said they inhaled odour of a chemical, but I can’t say specifically what killed them.
“The house where the incident happened belonged to the wife. The man that was found dead was married to the woman, but those children belonged to another man. The man had his own house also in Apomu. He was a policeman and was known as Saheed,” the source added.
The Osun State Police Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the incident.
