Family members found dead in Abuja


Four members of a family have been found dead at a poultry farm in Abaji Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

It was learnt that a security guard at the poultry identified as Dominic Peter Adegeze, his daughters, Victoria and Judith, and his one-month-old son, Peter, were found dead, and the wife, Laraba, was taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Gwagwalada, unconscious.

A staff of the poultry, who preferred anonymity, said the incident happened yesterday morning, explaining that another staff who went to feed some cattle inside the poultry farm found the main gate under lock and key, and that he scaled the fence and found the guard and his family members gasping and foaming from their mouths.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the FCT police command, DSP Adeh Josephine, confirmed the incident, saying the police is investigating.
