Mystery death at VGC: Homicide detectives spread dragnet to unravel cause of death





Further details surrounding the death of the Chairman of highbrow Victoria Garden City, VGC Estate in Lagos, Gihan Mbelu, 42, emerged,  just as the police have spread their dragnet to unravel the mystery surrounding the tragedy by carrying out an autopsy test.

It was gathered that the man was seen in the early hours of the day he died moving into the estate and greeting friend as well-as wishers, happily.

Reports said he later drove towards a popular restaurant inside the estate called ‘Swiss Restaurant’, packed his SUV outside their gate and proceeded inside to buy a bottle of mineral drink and a bottled water. He was seen strolling into his car but he did not drive out.

Neighbours said the deceased who also owns a mansion around another highbrow area of the state, Ikoyi, usually shuttles between Victoria Garden Estate and Ikoyi where members of his family reside permanently. In the morning the ugly incident took place, he reportedly came all the way from Ikoyi to VGC and moved to the restaurant where he bought the drinks and later retired to rest inside his car.

Sources at the restaurant told Vanguard that it was strange that he packed his car outside the gate because he normally locates a particular space inside the restaurant where he packs his car.

However, police sources said his lifeless body was discovered around 11 pm same day inside his car after a security man on night duty noticed that his car was steaming and had been packed for long outside their gate.

He subsequently approached the car only to see that the owner was inside but on further scrutiny, the security man also observed that the person inside was lifeless. He then raised alarm and his colleagues were invited and after further observation and hard knocks around the car without response from the person inside, the police and the estate guards were invited. They later managed to forcefully open the car only to discover that the person inside was lifeless.
