Ondo State Police Command has confirmed the death of two lovers, Ojo Akinro and Mary lgwe, and their friend Lamidi Sheriff whose bodies were found in the toilet.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Funmi Odunlami, confirmed the death, revealing that their killers dumped their bodies in the toilet.
Odunlami revealed that “This is a case of murder and police detectives have commenced an investigation.”
The deceased’s bodies were found in their apartment in Aratusi quarters in Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo state.
The trio were said to have been murdered by suspected yahoo boys who after killing them locked the door and left the back door opened, leaving their bodies to decompose.
Sources revealed that Mary, a nurse who was staying with her boyfriend was pregnant before she was murdered.
A source said the incident might be in connection with some dirty deals between Akinro and some suspected internet fraudsters.
He said “this is a case of murder, the victims must have been silenced over a failed deal. You know all these young boys and girls are into so many shady deals.
“Only God knows what went wrong between them that they just decided to kill the three of them just like that.
“It was unbelievable when their corpses were brought out by the police and taken to the mortuary. The lovers live together, many people even believed they are a young couple.
“Their killers came through the back door, murdered them and decided to lock up their bodies inside the toilet to decompose.
“The back door was met opened. Their laptops, telephones and other gadgets were still intact inside their flat when some of their friends broke down the front door to enable them to enter their flat.
“We suspect that they were killed by yahoo boys and that means they must have swindled them and they decided to silence them.
“Three of them were killed including the two lovers and one of their friends. Their killers must have escaped through the back door which was met opened.”
The neighbours appealed to the security operatives to unravel those behind the dastardly act and ensure justice is served.
