Generator fumes on Saturday killed a man identified by his neighbours as a policeman, and his lover, suspected to be a member of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Anambra State, PUNCH reports.

They were found dead on Sunday in an apartment at Ezinifite Okpuno, Awka-South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

According to the report, the identity of the policeman could not be ascertained, but the woman, a mother of the five was known as Ifeoma.

The woman reportedly told her husband that she was going for a vigil, but went to her police lover’s house instead. The policeman, it was reported, had three children who live in Lagos with their mother.

Some neighbours attributed the cause of their death to generator fumes.

One of the neighbours said that “there was the sound of a small generator throughout the night in his apartment. But at about 4AM, it went dead; maybe the fuel got finished”.

“The policeman lived on the third floor of the house. As a policeman, he hardly stayed around, but each time he was around, everybody would know, because he would run his generator all through the night. Everybody called him ‘Officer’, but I think he was an inspector,” the source added.

According to another neighbour:

The woman spent the night with her police lover until a labourer, who was to work for the policeman, came in the morning and discovered their dead bodies.

The labourer then rushed out and alerted neighbours.

The neighbours followed him to confirm the incident, before a relative intervened and locked the gate, preventing people from further going inside the apartment.

However, according to the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkeiru Nwode said that the deceased man was not a police officer and the identity of the woman is not yet known.

“With all due respect, the man in question is not a member of the Nigeria Police Force and the woman’s identity is yet to be ascertained. I have not yet been fully briefed on the story. As soon as I get the details, I will communicate with you, please,” she said.

    This is just another confirmation that 97% of Nigeria married men are highly adulterous while 95% of Nigeria married women are also highly adulterous. The useless woman told her husband she’s going for a vigil, haba using God’s name to lie. I thought that said women cheats and hide it better forgeting God is the omni present. When all these men haters on this blog accuses Naija men of adultery, I just look at them with a smile. 95% of married women in Nigeria are polygamous as the men whether xtian or Moslem, Northerner or Southerner. There is nothing like sanctity of marriage again. I have a friend in Abuja, he is married and he has 2 girlfriends who are married women. The so called “am happily married woman”. My point is as you have a lot of irresponsible married men so also are tons of equally irresponsible married women.

      @Paul, where did you get your statistics from & would you be willing to share? I’m just saying, you can’t be throwing around figures without any solid evidence to back it up. Sure infidelity occurs in Nigerian marriages more than people care to admit but to peg it at 97% & 95% is extremely unbelievable, and by the way I’m not trying to defend infidelity in any way man.

    Signal to all Bella Naija Men-Bashers. This is proof, clear unadulterated proof that both women and men cheat in equal parts.
    We need to stay focused on being loyal to our significant others and avoid foolishness.
    Also, please if you wanna cheat, cheat with someone who has taste or a sense of style. How will ordinary generator fumes kill you? Una on Gen inside room with una?

    Wow! Nobody sees the problem of having to rely on these hazardous contraptions as the most affordable alternative source of power supply?! Fumes have wiped out entire families before. Are you kidding me right now?!!
