A police officer to be identified was found dead with her child and mother-in-law in Oloosa-Oko, Oja-oba, in Osogbo, the capital of the state of Osun.

The woman, popularly known as Mummy Jumoke, is said to have fallen asleep with her children and mother-in-law so that her generator had little or no room for ventilation.

According to federal state public relations officer Ms. Folashade Odoro, the deceased officer and the other two may have died from carbon monoxide emissions from their generator.

She added that the other children gasping for breath as neighbors forced their way into the apartment, were quickly taken to the Obafemi Awolowo Teaching Hospital for immediate medical treatment.

She said, "At 0850, a sergeant, who was attached to her mother-in-law and a child at the police station, was found dead in her home in Oja-Oba Osogbo.

"The other two children, who were still gasping for breath in the same apartment, were taken to OAU-IFE for medical attention. Presumably it was assumed that the carbon monoxide emission of their generator was the cause of death. The investigation is under way, however. "

A neighbor of the deceased, Mr. Kayode Akande, said the woman, along with her mother-in-law and three children, were the only ones occupying the 3-bedroom apartment, adding that the husband, who is also a police officer, is currently on duty in Ogun State and visits his family only occasionally.

"We are all surprised that we woke up this morning and found people dead. I last saw the woman on Monday. She was always a calm and uncomplicated person. One can hardly know that she is a policewoman.

"I think the vapors of the generator responsible for her death, even the mother-in-law were still alive when we forced the door open, she gave up the ghost on the way to the hospital, it's really pathetic."
