The Benue Police Command on Friday confirmed the discovery of bodies of three dead members of a family in their room at North-Bank area of Makurdi metropolis.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Catherine Anene, who confirmed the bizarre happening to News Agency of Nigeria in Makurdi, said investigations were ongoing to unravel the cause of death.
The PPRO also disclosed that a little girl was found in the room where the dead bodies were discovered, completely unhurt but too small to give useful information.
She said the cause of death was still unknown but added that all the bodies had no physical injury to warrant an immediate determination of cause of death.
She, therefore, appealed to members of the public with useful information to report to the nearest security agencies for necessary action.
“The incident was reported today (Friday) and when our men rushed to the scene, we discovered three bodies — a man, his wife and son,” she said.
Some of the neighbours described the deceased family members as “peaceful” and wondered what could have happened.
