Generator fume wipes out a family of four in Obajana, Kogi state

The lives of Mr. John Ayodele, his wife and two children, who are residents of Obajana, Lokoja Kogi state, have been brutally cut shot courtesy of generator fumes. 
Due to epileptic power supply, Nigeria is a major consumer of generators with citizens often making the deadly mistake of positioning them inside or within close range to their rooms. Another name for generator in Nigeria is "I pass my neighbour"
Mr Ayodele was said to have been last seen on July 28 after which suspicion set in.
Chief Richard Asaje his causin said the stench emanating from the home of the victim attracted people who went to check him. The police was alerted and the room was forced open only to discover the decomposing bodies of the family of four. Generator was reportedly discovered in the premises.
According to Asaje “the incident was discovered around 12am on Saturday. He put a generator inside his toilet and locked the door and window.
“Unfortunately, we never knew something had happened. The second day, we forced the door open because of the stench emanating from the house and found their dead bodies
“The man should be about 35, but the wife was less than 30 years old. Their daughter was about four years old, while the second child, a boy, was about three months old. We do not suspect any foul play. This has thrown our family into serious mourning.
“They will be buried on Friday, August 4, 2017, at the Obajana Cemetery,”
William Aya, mouthpiece of the Police in Kogi said  “four people died and we got the information.  A Divisional Police Officer went to the place and took the bodies to the mortuary. The cause of death is yet to be ascertained. It is the autopsy that will ascertain the cause,”
