See Faces of Married "Lovers" Found Dead in Car... Police Go After Their Friends

The police in Lagos State are now in search for friends of the two "love birds" found dead in a Toyota Corolla car on Abisogun Leigh Street in the Ogba area of Lagos.

Police is trying to crack what happened at a birthday party the duo attended the previous day.

Recall that a tricycle rider had discovered that the alleged lovers, identified as Lukmon and Promise, were motionless inside the car with its headlamps on.

The Area G Police Command was alerted, who opened the car door and found them dead.

While the man was reportedly met half n*ked on the driver’s seat, the woman was said to be in a gown, reclining on the passenger’s seat beside him.

A brand of alcoholic drink – Best – and their phones were recovered from the car on Sunday.

It was gathered that the late Lukmon, Promise and some of their friends, had attended a birthday party at Obawole, in the Iju Ishaga area of the state the previous evening.

A credible source at the Area G Command confided in Punch on Tuesday that the police were looking for the friends.

“For now, investigation is not pointing to a murder case. But the investigation is still at a preliminary stage. We are looking for the friends they (the deceased) attended the birthday party with to get information on what transpired at the event,” the source said.

Another source said the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for discreet investigations.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said, “It is still a case of sudden and unnatural death. We will leave no stone unturned. The families of the deceased will be interviewed. Investigation will be thorough to know if there was a foul play.”
