Six men die mysteriously after allegedly drinking friend’s alcohol in Ogun

Six men have reportedly died mysteriously after drinking local gin allegedly served by a friend at a bar joint in Ogun State.

It was gathered that the incident occurred in Ogbogbo community, Ijebu-North East Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday, where seven friends had gathered for merry-making.

Six persons were said to have drank the alcohol died, except the man who supplied the drink from his house but did not drink from it. Sources said that while at the spot, the six deceased and the suspect had earlier engaged in an argument, which was later settled.

As a way of ensuring that they mend fences and move on, the suspect reportedly went home to get the bottle of local gin, which he reportedly gave them to consume. Few hours after they all went to their separate homes, news filtered in that two of the friends died while four others were hospitalised.

A source said; “The other four persons died the following day. Six people have been confirmed dead. The whereabouts of the man who brought the alcohol is yet to be known.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Omolola Odutola who confirmed the incident, said; “I just confirmed something like that occurred, but the families said they are not pressing charges and prefer to bury their dead”.
