The Alagbado Division of the Lagos State Police Command has commenced investigation into the mysterious deaths of two musicians identified as Ajibawo Lawal and Sunday Akhigbe.
37-year-old Ajibawo Lawal and 12-year-old Sunday Akhigbe were found dead, while two other artists including the studio manager were found lying unconscious in Coded Music Recording studio around 7am at the Awolusi Bus stop in the Alagbado area of Lagos State.
Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Muyiwa Adejobi said they received a distress call from an anonymous caller that a crowd was seen converging on a studio at Alagbado where rumour had it that some persons died inside.
The deceased musicians and their hospitalised colleagues had performed all night in the studio before they were discovered in critical condition in the morning after neighbours broke into the building through the window.
Cause of death could not be immediately confirmed because residents also brought out a generator that was working and some hard drugs from the studio, fueling speculations that they might have died from fumes or effects of hard drugs.
A search was conducted inside the studio and the generator, condoms, bread and food that the deceased vomited and substances suspected to be hard drugs, including Indian hemps were found.
Meanwhile, one Muritala Azeez, the owner of the studio, who is already in custody, admitted to having hired and kept them there and identified them as artistes who produce music for him but he has now been rushed to the hospital because he was unconscious too.
The police noted that there was no suspect for now but autopsy will be carried out on the corpses to ascertain the cause of death.
