The police spokesperson said, “The family filled a court injunction to stop police from investigating the death of the couple. The son said his parents died of generator fume.

“He said the maid was not affected due to the distance of her room to the generator house. They said they didn’t want any autopsy to be conducted. So we cannot continue the investigation to ascertain the cause of their death”, Opalola explained.

However, the couple had on Thursday been buried at their residence, Ireti Ayo, Imose area of the town.
