According to police sources, the deceased had complained of headache on the said day and had visited the hospital. The DPO returned but was still feeling unwell.

It was reported that the orderly returned to meet the deceased on the floor gasping for breath. He was rushed to the Badagry General Hospital where he was confirmed dead.
The state police spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident said, “He died on Tuesday. It was shocking to everybody because there was nothing serious about his health. They said he just complained about a minor headache, went to the hospital, came back, commenced work, and died shortly afterward.”
