Two Musicians Found Dead, Others Unconscious In A Studio In Lagos

Two musicians identified as Ajibawo Lawal and Sunday Akhigbe were found dead, while they found two other artists including the studio manager lying unconscious in a studio around 7 am at the Awolusi Bus stop in the Alagbado area of Lagos State.

We learned that the deceased musicians and their hospitalized colleagues had performed

all night in the studio before they discovered them in critical condition in the

morning after neighbors broke into the building through the window.

The cause of death could not be immediately confirmed because residents also

brought out a generator that was working and some hard drugs from the studio,

fueling speculations that they might have died from fumes or effects of hard drugs.

Narrating the incident, one of the resident of the building where the studio is located said

, “Nobody came out from the studio while they left a generator working.

So, neighbors became suspicious and broke into the building through the window.

Apart from the dead artistes, they met two others in terrible condition.

We had to rush them to a private hospital.

The police have taken over the case and we don’t know the state of the men in the hospital.”

Policemen from the Alagbado division have confirmed the incident.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, also confirmed the incident, noting that investigations are ongoing.

“We received a distress call from an anonymous caller that a crowd was seen

converging on a studio at Alagbado where rumor had it that some persons died inside.

“Upon receipt of the information, police operatives went to the scene,

which is Coded Music Recording Studio at Awolusi bus stop.

Two artistes, Ajibawo Lawal, 37, and Sunday Akhigbe, 12, were met inside the studio dead.
