The police at Ibafo, Ogun State, southwest Nigeria, are trying to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of a middle aged man identified as Sunday Onuoha, a generator mechanic.
The deceased, P.M.NEWS learnt went with his girlfriend named Toyin, the previous day, to an eatery where they ate snacks.
According to Toyin, Sunday called her on phone at about 11:30p.m and said he would call her back around 3 a.m so that he could tell her what Jododo told him about her. She explained further that after waiting endlessly without hearing from him she decided to call him but his cell phone was switched off only for her to hear the following morning that he was dead.
Another twist to the drama is that Toyin was alleged to have, some time ago, slept with an okada rider who died immediately after which made some people to have the belief that Toyin is under a spell. It was also alleged that she confessed that her former boyfriend, told her that any other man that makes love to her will die, an allegation he denied, saying that they are trying to rope him into the matter.
When P.M.NEWS sought to know the relationship between him and Toyin, he said she was his former wife but that they have parted ways for over two months now.
A police source at Ibafo Police Station confirmed to P.M.NEWS that Toyin and the former boyfriend have once been to the station to ask the police to desolve their marriage but they were advised to go to court if they are no more interested in their relationship.
The father of the deceased, Pa Onuoha has, however, told the police that he is not interested in the case and as such, did not want a postmoterm examination to be carried out on his son.
He was then made to write a withdrawal letter before the corpse was released to him for burial, while investigation into the matter have been discontinued.
