The industrial settlement of Obajana area of Kogi State has been thrown into mourning following the discovery of the decomposing bodies of a man, his wife and two children in their building.

The man was identified as Mr. John Oluwasegun Ayodele. The family of four was suspected to have been killed by fumes from a generator mounted in the house.

The late Ayodele was reported to have been last seen on Friday, July 28, 2017. Apprehension reportedly set in when the deceased was not seen by his neighbours the following day.

Tension heightened over his continued absence till Saturday evening, with calls to his mobile phone unanswered. His cousin, Richard Asaje, said the family had gone to check on him at home following the stench that was emanating from Ayodele’s house.

Consequently, policemen from Obajana Division were alerted and when the door was forced open, the decomposing bodies were discovered.

Asaje explained that the generator fume was suspected as the cause of death.

“The incident happened between Friday and Saturday. It should be around 12am of Saturday.

“He put a generator inside his toilet and locked the door. The house is a concrete building and it was discovered that he locked the window.

“Unfortunately, we never knew something had happened the second day, so we forced the door open following the stench emanating from the house.”

The deceased’s cousin said their remains had since been deposited at the Kogi State Specialist Hospital, Lokoja.

“The husband should be around 35, but the wife is less than 30 years. The daughter that died was around four years and the last born, a boy, was about three months old.

“To us as a family, it is a shocking thing; but there is no suspect because their deaths were caused by the fume of the generator. It has indeed thrown the family into serious mourning mood,” Asaje noted.

He said the victims would be buried on Friday, August 4, 2017 at Obajana Cemetery.

Describing the incident as sudden and unnatural death, the Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP William Aya said, “Four people died and we got the information.

“The Divisional Police Officer went to the place and evacuated the bodies to the mortuary.

“The cause of death is yet to be ascertained. It is the autopsy that will ascertain the cause of the death,” Aya said.

Meanwhile, the Kogi State Government has sent a team to Obajana to investigate the circumstances that led to the death of the family of four.

Speaking about the issue, the Commissioner for Environment Kogi State, Mrs. Rosemary Osikoya, said in Lokoja that the ministry would liaise with other agencies in the sensitization of the public on the dangers of carbon dioxide in the environment.

“Looking at it from the environmental point of view and the circumstantial evidence available, when a generator is put in an enclosed place if what we hear is correct –fresh air will be locked out. So, that could lead to poisoning.

“But until the investigation is complete, there may not be much we could do other than to sensitize the public that it is dangerous to put generator very close to where people are sleeping.”

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale
A new woman has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The new accuser claims Kavanaugh exposed himself without her consent during their college years at Yale.

The New Yorker published a bombshell story on Sunday ahead of Kavanaugh’s Thursday hearing in D.C., where he’s already set to face-off against Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of a sexual assault when they were both in high school.

The sexual assault claims brought against Brett Kavanaugh led to the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidn’tReport after US President Donald Trump defended him and asked his accuser why she didn’t speak up years ago (read here).

In the latest accusation made against Brett Kavanaugh, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and ’84. She says she got drunk during a drinking game, and that at one point a male classmate (not Kavanaugh) pointed a dildo at her.

In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, the woman says soon after she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his pants up and laughing.

She says she also remembers another student shouting down the hall, “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face.” Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.

Ramirez admits that parts of her memory on the alleged incident are fuzzy, but the New Yorker notes “After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” Ramirez felt confident in the details of her story.

As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker:

This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.

A White House spokesperson also expressed support for Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is still waiting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court as President Trump’s latest nominee.
