Four suspected internet fraudsters have been confirmed dead and three others currently hospitalized in Delta State.
The decomposing bodies of four of them were reportedly discovered Thursday morning in a one-room apartment where they were all camped in Abraka.
It was gathered that the victims may have died of poisoning because the seven of them had a meal of noodles together on Wednesday evening and slept off.
However, one of them reportedly called for help early Thursday morning when he discovered that the others were unconscious and he was also feeling unwell.
The Delta State Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who confirmed the incident, said: “According to the caretaker, the room was rented to one person but at times, he brought seven or nine people to stay there.
But in this particular case, they were seven in the room. Four of them were found dead, two unconscious and one was conscious. They were rushed to Eku Specialist Hospital.“
