On 3 October, 2019 a team from Bariga Police Division while on patrol along Shobande Street, Akoka noticed a black Hyundai vehicle parked along the road with two occupants: Abiodun Balogun (32) and Odisha Ginika (21) laying down unconscious on driver and passenger seats respectively.
They were rushed to hospital for medical attention while the vehicle was removed from the scene for inspection.
They were resuscitated by the medical team on duty and later discharged from the hospital. Preliminary investigation revealed that the man is an Uber driver while the lady was his passenger. They became unconscious as a result of a poisonous chemical substance/gas they inhaled due to leakage from the air conditioning system. -By Dedeigbo Ayodeji
