EIGHT DECOMPOSING BODIES FOUND IN CROSS RIVER


Eight decomposing bodies have been found in Ikom, in Ikom local government area of Cross River State.

The bodies, which were found at Abico junction, caused panic in the area.

It has been reported that the victims allegedly died after inhaling fumes from a generating set in their house.

An eyewitness, who gave his name as Anthony Agom, said the victims were from the same family and from Cameroon.

The victims were found in one room some days after inhaling the fume and reportedly dead in their room.

The eyewitness disclosed that it was the stench from the room that made them realize that something was amiss.

“When we broke down the door, we discovered all the eight family members were dead, and we are suspecting its generator fume that caused this kind of havoc.

“But we cannot also rule out poisoning until an autopsy is carried out on them. We cannot be sure as the matter is being investigated because we have also had fillers that they could have also died of poisoning

“But the fact remains that eight of them are dead including four other siblings, parents (mother and father) two year and five year old respectively.

“People had to flee the house due to the stench and also to avoid being arrested by police, you know the family is from Cameroon and they came in as refugees and everyone in the area is very careful until the cause of death is established but for now we believe it was generator fume that killed them,” he stated.

It was gathered that the corpses have been taken to the morgue and further investigation is on to ascertain the cause of their death.

When contacted on phone on Monday, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Irene Ugbo confirmed the story, saying that the Police was investigating the report with a view to prosecuting the offender(s).

“The story is true, we are investigating the matter,” she stated.
