Four suspected internet fraudsters have been reported dead after eating eggs and indomie at Ajanomi Area in Abraka Community in Ethiope-East Local Government Area of Delta State.
The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who disclosed this said, the police found seven suspected internet fraudsters in a single room and four of them were already dead, while one was unconscious.
Onovwakpoyeya said two other victims who were also found unconscious were rushed to the Eku Baptist Specialist Hospital where they are now receiving medical treatments.
“The DPO has called me. He said at about 2:30 am this morning, a vigilante member called them that an offensive odour was coming out of a room. So, they went there. When they got there, they found out that one room, a single room, was being occupied by seven occupants and four people were already dead while one was unconscious.”
The Police spokeswoman said the seven of the victims were rushed to the hospital which confirmed four of them dead, while two others are receiving treatment.
“The two unconscious are receiving treatments. The one that’s conscious said last night, they prepared egg and indomie and after sometime, he was now feeling somehow. By the time he checked, others were already lying down.
“The DPO said their stomachs were swollen and their skins were already peeling as if they poured hot water on them.
“after we realized that they’re suspected internet fraudsters. We noticed they’re not students because they had to get the caretaker who said he actually rented the room to one person. He brought others. But this time around, they’re seven. That they’re not students of the school (Delta State University).”
DSP Onovwakpoyeya also said the DPO said, they were trying to get more updates on the incident which led to the death of the four persons.
