Findings have shown that, the late Adeboye had two
wives and six children before the incident. Further
findings have also revealed that, the first wife, and her
three children who slept in another room in the same six-

room bungalow were alive.
It was gathered that the whole community woke up and
found out that the five people were dead while the first
wife and her children were safe.
The people in the community were said to be suspecting a
foul play as the two wives were said to always be at
loggerheads.
Some people alleged that chemical odour was being
perceived in the house of the deceased, while some others
said the deaths could be as a result of the fumes from the
generator at the back of the building.
A resident in the area who lived directly in front of the
building who pleaded for anonymity said it was the wailing
of the first wife that woke up members of the community
who found out that the people were dead.
A source said, " The wives are always fighting, cursing each
other, it got to a stage that the community leader had to
intervene."
Sources within the community said the first wife whose name
could not be ascertained was almost lynched but she was
saved by policemen from nearby Ilupeju divisional police
headquarters.
A zonal leader in the community, Abubakar Olowoorioke,
explained that they were in the mosque in the early hours
when a woman alerted them about the tragic incident.
Olowoorioke explained that he could not move closer to the
place because of the shock but added that the smell of
chemicals could be perceived from inside the house.
The Police Public Relations officer in the state, Muyiwa
Adejobi, confirmed the incident ,adding that the cause of
the death was still unknown in mystery and that postmortem
would be carried out on the corpses to reveal the cause of
death.
