A witness also told reporters that it may be likely a murder case.
“The victims had to be assassinated because of a failed deal. You know all these young boys and girls are in such a bad business. “Only God knows what happened between them and they just decided to kill the three of them like that.
“It was incredible when their corpses were taken out by the police and taken to the morgue. The lovers lived together; many people even believed they were a young couple.
“Their killers went through the back door, murdered them and decided to lock their bodies in the toilet to decompose.
“The back door was found open. Their laptops, phones and other gadgets were still intact inside their apartment when some of their friends kicked in the front door to allow them to enter their apartment.
“We suspect they were killed by Yahoo Boys and that means they must have cheated them and they decided to eliminate them.
“Three of them were killed including the two lovers and one of their friends. Their killers had to escape through the back door.
Ondo Police Command spokesperson, DSP Funmilayo Odunlami confirmed the incident.
“This is a murder case and police detectives have started the investigation into the killing,” Odunlami said.
