Occupants said Chetan inhabited 37A Atiba

An onlooker, James Odion, said Chetan and Akhadelor were most likely coming back from a club in the early hour of Saturday.
He stated that the two died on Olugbade Street, Mende, Maryland, about 72 metres from where the man’s residence.
According to him, the two were suspected to have taken poisoned drinks, which might have led to their death and not the car’s air conditioning system as being suggested in some quarters.
He added that when the police eventually arrived and forced open the car, they found containers of the drinks they allegedly consumed.
Odion explained that on Olugbade Street, where Chetan parked his vehicle, a resident approached him and asked him to remove the car, noting that the place was where he (the man) often parked his car.
He said Chetan begged the man, saying that he was feeling uncomfortable and that in a short while, he would move the vehicle out, adding that about one hour later, Chetan and Akhadelor were found dead.
Odion stated, “Chetan was in his 30s. I knew him very well but I had never seen the lady, who was with him.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, saying the corpses of Chetan and Akhadelor had been recovered and deposited in the hospital for autopsy.
