The Benue Police Command on Friday confirmed the discovery of bodies of three 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.
Some of the neighbours described the deceased family members as “peaceful” and wondered what could have happened
Last monday, an acting Permanent Secretary, his pregnant wife and two children were burnt to death in the kwararafa Quarters in situation yet to be determined.
