A family and residents of 46, Olatunji road, Ojota, Lagos
State were thrown into mourning yesterday when the bodies of two
siblings were found lifeless in a shop, with strange white-like
substances around their mouth and head.

The brothers, Michael,
aged 21 and Paul, aged 19 years were found yesterday morning by a
neighbour who wondered why the shop was not opened so late in the day.
Placing calls to their mobile phones, the phones were found to be
ringing in the shop. The neighbour, who didn’t want his name in print,
said he started getting worried because they all knew the duo usually
slept in the shop and were the first to open for business on the street.

Raising
an alarm, he gathered other neighbours who forced the shop open only to
discover the lifeless bodies inside. Loud cries immediately filled the
air as people started wondering if the duo committed suicide or were
killed. However, police officers from the Area H police station, who
were called to the scene carried out some preliminary investigations on
the spot and determined that they were choked with the carbon monoxide
from a running generating set inside the shop.

The
neighbour confirmed that they usually put on the generating set to sleep
if there was no power but argued that the generator couldn’t have led
to their death, suspecting foul play. “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 everyday. 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,” he wept.

Meanwhile, their bodies were
bagged and handed over to the police and an officer from the station who
pleaded anonymity said they would be handed over to the family after
proper investigations have been done.In another development, a 300-level
medical student of the Niger Delta University (NDU), Uzakah Timi
Ebiweni, has committed suicide in Bayelsa State for failing his
Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) examination. It was reported that
Ebiweni took a plunge into a river close to the university campus,
Amassoma located in the Southern Ijaw area council of the state.
About
50 students, out of the 169 who sat for the MBBS exam, failed. The
police public relations officer in the state, SP Asinim Butswat,
confirmed the incident but said there was no official report yet.

However,
the public relations officer of the university, Ndoni Ingezi said:
“Eniweni took his own life after news that he was part of 22 students
shortlisted to be withdrawn from the college came out. You know it is a
general practice that every student passes the MBBS exams before
progressing to the next level of academic pursuit. But Ebiweni and 21
others failed beyond the level that they could be placed on academic
probation for another academic year so they had to be withdrawn.

“So
in their usual practice, they do not break the news to the student
until they are invited for counseling. When Ebiweni was counseled and
informed about the fact that he will be withdrawn from college, on that
day, he accepted the decision in good fate and left. Only for the
university to hear afterwards that the young man took his own life. His
body has been recovered and deposited at the Sabageria mortuary.”
