The police have recovered the bodies of two Nigerian artistes found dead inside a studio at the Alagbado area of Lagos State.
Expressive Info reported that the musicians identified as Ajibawo Lawal and Sunday Akhigbe were discovered dead on the morning of Thursday, September 10.
It was stated that the artistes performed all night but neighbours became concerned when nobody came out of the studio in the morning and the generator was left working.
Guessing that something may be wrong, some people broke into the studio through the window and met the two artistes dead while the studio manager and one other person were found unconscious.
