Six persons have reportedly died after taking alcohol allegedly served by their friend in Ogbogbo in the Ijebu-North East area of Ogun State.
All the six persons who drank the alcohol died except the seventh person who reportedly brought the drink from home, but, did not partake in the drinking.
The deceased persons and the suspect reportedly engaged in a hot argument, but, was later settled.
“Six people have been announced dead as of the time of speaking to you. The whereabouts of the man who brought the alcohol is yet to be known.”
When contacted for a reaction, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Omolola Odutola confirmed the incident.
Odutola, however, refused to talk about the number of affected persons.
She said, “I just confirmed something like that occurred but the families said they are not pressing charges and prefer to bury their dead.”
