The house was suspected to have been fumigated with “killer chemical.”

One of the sympthasisers who accompanied the corpses to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, said the house owner, a borehole driller by profession, had just spent a night in the new house.

Their remains have since been evacuated and taken to the mortuary.

Hundreds of sympathisers besieged the Accident and Emergency Unit of the OOUTH, wailing uncontrollably over the unfortunate incident.

Oyeyemi said investigation into the matter had commenced in order to unravel the cause of death.
