A woman has allegedly killed her three-year-old son before committing suicide in Ayobo area of Lagos State.
The incident reportedly happened at No 1, Adeniran Street, off Ferguson Osagie Road in Ayobo.
Reports have it that the woman was financially comfortable and had no known trouble that may have led her to kill her son and then take her own life.
Officers from the Ayobo Police Station who were invited after the incident was discovered, say they are not ruling out possible double homicide as the deceased and her son were foaming from the mouth when they were found dead inside their home.
The remains of the deceased mother and child have not been moved as the tradition in Ayobo area is that when sudden and unexplained deaths occur, the Oro cult is always consulted to find out the cause of death and to ward off evil spirits that may have been unleashed of the sudden mysterious death.
Reports say the two corpses are currently lying in the house awaiting the Oro rituals before they are moved.
