An empty bottle of insecticide, suspected to have been gulped by the deceased, was found beside him, according to her.

She further explained to policemen at Elemoro division that “when he came back from work, he took some money and went out.

“Later, his master called and informed us that he stole N100,000 from his shop. Chibueze did not come back home until I received a call that he was found lying dead at Abijo bus-stop.”

Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hudenyin, who confirmed the incident, said: “Cynthia reported the incident at Elemoro Police Division about 7.50a.m., on March 12, 2024.

He said: “On the receipt of the report, detectives of the division visited the scene. By then, foam was gushing out of the deceased’s mouth and nostrils.

“The corpse has been removed and deposited at Epe General Hospital mortuary for autopsy and preservation. Investigation is ongoing. The empty can of insecticide has been recovered as an exhibit.”
