Tragedy! aFamily of three found dead in Benue State
The Benue Police Command has confirmed that three bodies, belonging to members of one family, have been found in a room in the northbank area of Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Catherine Anene, confirmed the incident and said investigation is on to unravel the cause of death. The PPRO also stated that a little girl was found in the room where the bodies were discovered completely unhurt but too small to give useful information.
She said that cause of death was still unknown but added that all the corpses had no physical injuries to warrant an immediate determination of cause of death. She, therefore, appealed to members of the public with useful information on the event to report to the nearest security agencies for necessary action.
“The incident was reported today and when our men rushed to the scene, we discovered three dead bodies: a man, his wife and son,” she said.
Some of the neighbours described the deceased family members as “peaceful” and wondered what could have happened.
