Four suspected Yahoo Boys found dead in a hotel room in Delta

Following the alleged curses rained on evil activities in Abraka community, Ethiope East local government area of Delta state, by elders in the area, four suspected Yahoo Boys have been reportedly dead in their sleep at their hotel room.

Although the situation and bizarre death of the suspects are reportedly treated with a pinch of salt, as nothing seemed to have happened, but it was gathered that the suspects had slept in the hotel room together, and four of them died in their sleep on Thursday night, while two others are presently in unconscious states, and are admitted into a private hospital in the area.

Commissioner of police in the state, Hafiz Muhammed Inuwah, who confirmed the incident to journalists in Asaba, on Friday, said that the incident occurred at Sunrose Hotel on Ogboru road in Abraka community; adding that the only survivor was said to have raised the alarm in the early hours of Friday after he discovered that some of his roommates were unconscious.

Eyewitness, Richard Omorogho, said that the bodies of the deceased surprisingly had their heads swollen and their bodies peeling off, which might be an indication of poisonous substances that they inhaled, while others blamed their deaths on generator fumes.
