There are speculations that the deaths may be attributed to the emission of carbon monoxide from a generator.

Mr Clement Okafor, Chairman of the housing estate, told journalists that he suspected the victims may have died from carbon fumes from a generator.

“Although nobody knows what actually led to the tragic deaths, however, we can not rule out the fumes from the generator, which was on throughout the night,” Okafor said.
