Three persons have been confirmed dead from suspected generator fumes around Sapele road in Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of Edo State.

It was gathered that the bodies of the deceased, including a male and two females, were discovered at about 3am on Sunday when a brother to the late man raised the alarm.

It was learnt that the door to the apartment was locked prior to the discovery of the bodies.

Upon entry, the generator was said to have been sighted in the kitchen, a development which raised the suspicion that it could have been left running throughout the night.

It was learnt that one of the women who had visited the late man was found lying lifeless outside the flat located on Agharese Adu Street.

‎The naked body of the man was said to have been found lying on the ground, while the other woman’s body was found on a bed.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Moses Nkombe, confirmed the incident on Sunday.

‎Nkombe said an investigation would be conducted to ascertain the cause of death.

He said, “Until (the) doctor’s report comes out, it is likely they died of generator fume. One of the occupants of the room died.

“The flat is occupied by three boys. The two senior ones went to a party and when they returned, they saw that the door was locked;‎ they then raised the alarm.”

‎It was, however, learnt that the remains of the deceased have been deposited in a mortuary.
