One week after a 39-year-old man, Lukman Olowu, and a woman, Promise Nne, were found dead half-naked in a car on a Lagos street, their families say they were awaiting results of the autopsies that would clear up speculations about their relationship and death.
Reports claimed that Lukman and Nne were lovers but while the man’s family insisted that he could not possibly be the woman’s lover, Nne’s husband, Clement, said he knew that she was having an affair.
Saturday Punch spoke with Lukman’s brother, Idris, who explained that the family was leaving the matter in the hands of the police, while awaiting the result of the autopsy.
“We cannot say much now because of ongoing police investigation but I can tell you that we have much to tell you later when the autopsy is out,” he said.
Lukman and Nne were found dead in a Toyota Corolla with its engine running last Sunday on Abisogun Leigh Street, Ogba.
When Punch correspondent visited No. 56, Shonola Street, where Clement’s family are, but some men claiming to be his relations, said “he is not allowed to talk to journalists”.
The spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Mr. Olarinde Famous-Cole, also said investigation was still ongoing. According to him, there was little the police could do until the results of autopsies conducted were out.
