Josephine Adeh, spokesperson for the federal capital territory (FCT) police command, stated that the investigation into the incident is currently ongoing.

She said: “The incident occurred on the 1st of April at about 10 p.m., following a distress call by the estate manager of Zone D 1st gate, Apo Legislative Quarters to Apo divisional police headquarters that one Seun Ezekiel, called to report that his parents who reside in the estate are not responding to their calls.”

“And with his permission, they brought down the window protector of the kitchen to gain access into the house only to discover the bodies of his parents — Adebola Ezekiel and Abiodun Ezekiel in the pool of their blood, with their throats slit by yet to be identified persons.

“The commissioner of police visited the crime scene and has ordered the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to commence a discreet investigation immediately. The outcome of investigations will be communicated in due course.”
